Module 10: Automatic Scaling and Monitoring

The purpose of this module is to introduce students to three fundamental AWS services –Elastic
Load Balancing, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Auto Scaling, and Amazon CloudWatch –
which can be used together to build dynamic, scalable architectures.

At the end of this module, students should be able to:
• Indicate how to distribute traffic across Amazon EC2 instances by using Elastic Load Balancing
• Identify how Amazon Cloud Watch enables you to monitor AWS resources and
applications in real time
• Explain how Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches and releases servers in response to workload
• Perform scaling and load balancing tasks to improve an architecture
