Amazon EC2 Register Instances with LoadBalance Step

Elastic Load Balancing automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple Amazon EC2 instances. It enables you to achieve even greater fault tolerance in your applications, seamlessly providing the amount of load balancing capacity needed in response to incoming application traffic. Elastic Load Balancing detects unhealthy instances within a pool and automatically reroutes traffic to healthy instances until the unhealthy instances have been restored.

You can enable Elastic Load Balancing within a single Availability Zone or across multiple zones for even more consistent application performance. Elastic Load Balancing can also be used in an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to distribute traffic between application tiers. For more details, see the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud documentation.
