It’s no secret that businesses are abandoning traditional on-site data centers in favor of cloud-based platforms like Amazon Web Services. While there are numerous benefits to migrating data to the cloud, having an AWS data management strategy in place is essential for long-term success.

We are delighted to announce that you can now configure your AWS EC2 Auto Scaling Groups to operate on your chosen schedule using the CloudRanger platform. Previously, this functionality was only available through the AWS Application Programming Interface (API)Command Line Interface (CLI), and AWS CloudFormation.

AWS EC2 Auto Scaling based on a schedule allows you to scale your application in response to predictable load changes. For example, if the traffic to your web application consistently increases on Wednesday, remains high on Thursday, and starts to decrease on Friday, you can use scheduled Auto Scaling to automatically increase capacity to match the predictable traffic patterns of your web application.

AWS EC2 Auto Scaling allows you to automatically scale your EC2 resources based on demand within certain parameters. CloudRanger Auto Scaling schedules allow you to adjust these parameters, in a fully automated way. The minimum, maximum and desired values of an Auto Scaling Group (ASG) are the boundaries to which your scaling is confined. We allow you to dynamically adjust these limits and in case of emergency, to perform a one-off adjustment to your ASG.
