Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling now lets you enable and disable target tracking, step, and simple scaling policies. You can temporarily disable individual scaling policies during events such as maintenance windows. Once you’re ready, you can simply enable the scaling policies again to re-activate them, eliminating the need to delete and re-create the policies from scratch. 

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling helps you maintain application availability and allows you to automatically add or remove EC2 instances according to conditions you define. You can use the fleet management features to maintain the health and availability of your fleet. You can also use the dynamic scaling features to add or remove EC2 instances.
