Elastic Load Balancing

Amazon Web Services (AWS) users will be happy to hear about one of the new features of the Elastic Compute Cloud(EC2). The Elastic Load Balancing(ELB) capability does what many of us have solved using a special AMI instance. Specifically, instead of making an instance with a load balancer such as NGINX or Squid so as to maximize performance of a system, you can now use the ELB instead.

Creating an ELB is simple, and you can use "Auto Scaling" in combination with an ELB so that new service instances come on line as demand grows - and take them offline as demand shrinks. You can also set a minimum number of service instances so there is always some capacity available.
