What are the benefits of auto-scaling?

The benefits of auto-scaling include- •Better fault tolerance: Auto-scaling helps in determining and detecting which of the instances present on the server is unhealthy. Once established, the unhealthy instance is quickly terminated, and another healthy instance is sent as a replacement for the unhealthy one. •Better availability: Auto-scaling helps in ensuring that the application has […]
