Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling Now Supports Maximum Instance Lifetime

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling now lets you safely and securely recycle instances in an Auto Scaling group (ASG) at a regular cadence. The Maximum Instance Lifetime parameter helps you ensure that instances are recycled before reaching the specified lifetime, giving you an automated way to adhere to your security, compliance, and performance requirements. You can either create a new ASG or update an existing one to include the Maximum Instance Lifetime value of your choice between seven and 365 days.
