ECS Cluster Autoscaler
Scaling ECS clusters [effectively!] has always been a challenge. Today we are announcing our new ECS Autoscaler which will allow our customers to scale ECS clusters economically based on Spot prices and trends based on their cluster utilization.
This Autoscaler automatically scales instances up and down so that all scheduled tasks will have enough resources. If the cluster doesn’t have enough resources such as Memory, CPU or even Ports, a new instance will be added to the Elastigroup in order to fulfill the relevant Task requirement.
