Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling adds support for local time zones for scheduled scaling

The scheduled scaling feature of
Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling allows you to set a schedule for your Auto Scaling group to scale in and scale out your EC2 capacity. Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling now allows you to set a local time zone for scheduled scaling actions via the
AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) and
AWS SDKs, with support in the
AWS Management Console and
AWS CloudFormation coming soon. Selecting a time zone makes schedules easier to review and also removes the need to adjust schedules for Daylight Saving Time (DST).
