These bits aren't as fun without hands-on work, but what can you do.
AWS: Web Hosting
When your system is slow in the morning but peaks at night, redistribute the resources and adjust capacity to the evening to save money.
AWS can respond in real time when unexpected traffic spikes happen by launching new hosts and can be scaled down afterward.
You can also provision testing fleets to stage enviroments quickly.
It’s all about the quickness.
Unless you’re simulating usertraffic.
* Your network hardware is all virtual now. Nothing on your physical equipment. Wow, hope I get to experience that soon.
* Hosts should be ephemeral and dynamic.
