comment Advice regarding resilient internet access from within an Amazon VPC
Setting up an Auto Scaling Policy unfortunately doesn't work in this case. It is not possible to attach a pool of EIPs to an auto scaling group, so in case of a failure the newly spun up instance won't be able to connect to the internet. This also means that the NAT instance can't connect to the AWS API to obtain an EIP. Disabling the source/dest check is also not available (yet?) for auto scaling groups.
