Your application currently leverages AWS Auto Scaling to grow and shrink as load Increases’ decreases and has been
performing well. Your marketing team expects a steady ramp up in traffic to follow an upcoming campaign that will result

in a 20x growth in traffic over 4 weeks. Your forecast for the approximate number of Amazon EC2 instances necessary
to meet the peak demand is 175. What should you do to avoid potential service disruptions during the ramp up in traffic?

Ensure that you have pre-allocated 175 Elastic IP addresses so that each server will be able to obtain one as it launches.

Check the service limits in Trusted Advisor and adjust as necessary so the forecasted count remains within limits.

Change your Auto Scaling configuration to set a desired capacity of 175 prior to the launch of the marketing campaign.

Pre-warm your Elastic Load Balancer to match the requests per second anticipated during peak demand prior to the marketing

Amazon ELB is able to handle the vast majority of use cases for our customers without requiring “pre-warming”
(configuring the load balancer to have the appropriate level of capacity based on expected traffic).
