Auto Scaling

Auto Scaling is a service to automatically adjust computing resources based on your volume of user requests. When demand for computing resources increase, Auto Scaling automatically adds ECS instances to serve additional user requests, or alternatively removes instances in the case of decreased user requests.

This service is available free of cost. You will be only charged for the standard cost of adding additional ECS resources.
