LaunchTemplate - Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

The overrides are used to override the instance type specified by the launch template with multiple instance types that can be used to launch On-Demand Instances and Spot Instances.

When you update the launch template or overrides, existing Amazon EC2 instances continue to run. When scale out occurs, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling launches instances to match the new settings. When scale in occurs, Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling terminates instances according to the group's termination policies.
