The Price Is….
Varied. How it works is more important than how it’s priced at this point, so this will be brief(er).
E2 and RDS have Reserved Capacity, save up to 75% over the equivalent of on-demand capacity.
Docker 1.2 - Words Mean Things
Images - The blueprints, make up the basis of containers. [docker pull to get Busybox]
Containers - Made from images to run the application [docker run of Busybox image]
Daemon - Background service managing running, building, distributing docker containers
Client - The Command Line that talks to the daemon, though it can be a GUI. I prefer cmd line.

SCALING: Changing the number of replicas in a Deployment.
The Deployment only created one Pod to run our application, and that just won't do. We need more when traffic increases.
When you scale, you make sure new Pods are created and scheduled to Nodes who have the resources.
Scaling in will "reduce the number of Pods to the new desired state".
"Can we do this automatically?" Yes! But not now.
Running multiple application instances require a way to distribute traffic to them all. There is an integrated load-balancers with Services to do so, and they will continuously monitor the running Pods with endpoints, ensuring the traffic is sent only to available Pods.
