What is Auto-scaling in Cloud computing?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides an important feature called Auto-scaling in the cloud. With Auto-scaling setup we can automatically provision and start new instances in AWS cloud without any human intervention.

Auto-scaling is triggered based on load and other metrics.

Let say if the load reaches a threshold we can setup auto-scaling to kick in and start a new server to handle additional load.
