Amazon EC2 elastic cloud computing allows us to scale the number of servers according to load. We have a minimum of 4 and no maximum number of servers so that we can set the maximum load on any server to 60%. When the 60% threshold is reached EC2 automatically spools up another server.
Servers are equally distributed across the three main AWS locations.
