Today, the AWS Copilot CLI for Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) launched version 0.4.0. Starting with this release, you can enable autoscaling for services based on average CPU and memory utilization and provide a maximum and minimum number of tasks. AWS Copilot will also retain the service’s desired count after autoscaling occurred, so that if a deployment starts, your service will remain scaled out or in based on resource utilization.
