AWS re:Invent 2016: Auto Scaling – the Fleet Management Solution for Planet Earth (CMP201)

Scaling allows cloud resources to scale automatically in reaction to the dynamic needs of customers. This session will show how Auto Scaling offers an advantage to everyone – whether it’s basic fleet management to keep instances healthy as an EC2 best practice, or dynamic scaling to manage “extremes”. We’ll share examples of how Auto Scaling is helping customers of all sizes and industries unlock use cases and value. We’ll also discuss how Auto Scaling is evolving to scaling different types of elastic AWS resources beyond EC2 instances. NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) / California Institute of Technology will share how Auto Scaling is used to scale science data processing of Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) data from earth-observing satellite missions, and reduce response times during hazard response events such as those from earthquakes, floods, and volcanoes. JPL will also discuss how they are integrating their science data systems with the AWS ecosystem to expand into NASA’s next two large-scale missions with remote-sensing radar-based observations. Learn how Auto Scaling is being used at a global scale – and beyond!
