Can you use autoscaling in combination with shelving and unshelving instances?

Rather than having to completely rebuild an instance it seems like shelving and unshelving an already built instance might be a faster way to get a resource available. Just a thought.

Not at the moment. We have thought about solutions like that (pause/resume), but have not had enough time to implement them.

Thanks. Long application install times would make something like that very handy.

I'd suggest just building custom images for the time being.
