Amazon Web Services, in an announcement on Monday, unveiled the beta of three new features to help users monitor cloud resources. The new features includes: the CloudWatch monitoring service, Auto Scaling for on-demand capacity adjustments, and Elastic Load Balancing for redistributing traffic.
The features, according to the post, works together to help users build highly scalable and highly available applications. CloudWatch monitors Amazon EC2 capacity, Auto Scaling updates the Elastic Load Balancing service when new instances are launched or terminated to automatically scale the load-balanced capacity.
