We are pleased to announce that you can now use Auto Scaling to launch dedicated instances into any of your Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs). If your applications require instances be isolated at the hardware level, starting today you can choose dedicated tenancy for the instances in your Auto Scaling groups whether they are running in shared tenancy or dedicated-only Amazon VPCs.
To run dedicated instances in your Auto Scaling groups, simply create a new launch configuration and set the Placement Tenancy property to ‘dedicated’. When new instances are launched using this configuration, they will run on hardware dedicated to you. Learn more about using Auto Scaling in VPCs.
