In this course, we will explain AWS Auto Scaling lifecycle hooks. Being able to perform startup tasks and graceful shutdown is a critical step in using temporary infrastructure to run your application.
By the end of this course, you should have a greater understanding of managing Auto Scaling lifecycle hooks and their uses. Some of the key points we’ll be covering in this course include the following:
- Understand the entire lifecycle of an EC2 instance managed by Auto Scaling
- Manipulating this lifecycle to your advantage
- Alternative solutions to lifecycle hooks
- And using Spot Instances to take advantage of cost savings and faster completion of workloads
- Those implementing Auto Scaling groups in AWS
- Those attempting the AWS DevOps certification exam as this knowledge is essential for this purpose
- For those looking to use this skill right away, the course will show you a hands-on example of lifecycle hooks that you can try right now
- Have an understanding of Amazon EC2 Infrastructure, such as availability zones and VPCs, as well as Auto Scaling groups, and use cases for these AWS services
Being able to perform startup task and graceful shutdown, is a critical step of using temporary infrastructure to run your application. In this course, we're going to be explaining AWS Auto Scaling lifecycle hooks. This is simply a trigger that can help you perform actions on your instances, when you are launching or terminating as part of your auto scaling group. Hello, and welcome. My name is Carlos Rivas, and I'm a senior AWS content creator here at Cloud Academy. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions, using the details shown on the screen. Or you can always get in touch with us by sending an email to email@example.com, where one of our cloud experts will reply to your question. This course was created with two types of audiences in mind; Those of you implementing Auto Scaling groups in AWS, and those attempting the AWS DevOps Certification exam, as this knowledge is essential for this purpose.
For those of you looking to use this skill right away, the course will show you a hands-on example of lifecycle hooks, that you can try right now. If at this time you're doing this course for exam purposes, you'll see that Auto Scaling groups in general are a big part of the DevOps professional exam, as well as features related to auto scaling, including of course, lifecycle hooks. So, either way, this is practical and useful knowledge that you can put to good use right away. By the end of this course, you should have a greater understanding of managing Auto Scaling lifecycle hooks and their uses. Some of the key points we'll be covering in this course include: understand the entire lifecycle of an EC2 instance managed by auto scaling, manipulating this lifecycle to your advantage, an alternative solution to using lifecycle hooks, and using spot instances to take advantage of cost savings and faster completion of workloads.
To get the most out of this course, you should have an understanding of Amazon EC2 infrastructure such as; availability zones, and VPCs, as well as other scaling groups, and use cases for these AWS services.

Software Development has been my craft for over 2 decades. In recent years, I was introduced to the world of "Infrastructure as Code" and Cloud Computing.
I loved it! -- it re-sparked my interest in staying on the cutting edge of technology.
Colleagues regard me as a mentor and leader in my areas of expertise and also as the person to call when production servers crash and we need the App back online quickly.
My primary skills are:
★ Software Development ( Java, PHP, Python and others )
★ Cloud Computing Design and Implementation
★ DevOps: Continuous Delivery and Integration
