What do I need to get started using Auto Scale?


Auto Scale works by horizontally scaling a particular tier of an application; for example, the web tier. You need to know which servers you want to scale. To get started, you need a server image that you have configured with all needed applications, and settings, and that is configured to be ready when the server is started. You can ensure your servers deploy fully ready for service by using various programs such as Chef, Puppet, and Salt.
