AWS OpsWorks lets you model and visualize your application with layers that define how to configure a set of resources that are managed together. Did you also know that you have two ways to customize your instances? In this session we show you how use custom AMIs as the foundation for your instances to improve boot speeds and Chef recipes to dynamically install, configure, and update software

AWS Webcast - Customizing AWS ops works with chef 11 and Amazon machine images

  1. 1. AWS OpsWorks Chris Barclay Product Manager
  2. 2. Application Management Challenges • Your app’s reliability and scalability are really important. • The operational tasks needed to keep it running smoothly take time… • As your app grows, routine operational tasks can become even more time-consuming and error-prone. • Don’t want to tradeoff control or flexibility for ease of use. • Provision • Deploy • Configure • Monitor • Scale • Secure

  6. 6. In today’s infrastructure, everything is code… from the applications developers are writing, to your configuration management tools, to provisioning resources with CloudFormation templates.
  7. 7. AWS OpsWorks • Integrated application management solution for ops-minded developers and IT admins • Model, control and automate applications of nearly any scale and complexity • Management Console, SDKs, or CLI • No additional cost
  8. 8. Why AWS OpsWorks? SIMPLE Easy to use, quickly get started and productive PRODUCTIVE Reduces errors with conventions and scripted configuration FLEXIBLE Simplifies deployments of any scale and complexity POWERFUL Reduce cost and time with automation SECURE Enables control with fine grained permissions
  9. 9. Example Customers AWS OpsWorks gives us the tools we need to automate operations. We can scale Monster World, one of the largest Facebook games, to millions of users without ever needing more than two backend developers. Jesper Richter-Reichhelm head of engineering, Wooga Crashlytics uses AWS OpsWorks to support the rapid growth of our mobile crash reporting solution. With OpsWorks, we can focus on the development and growth of our service and not spend developer cycles on infrastructure and operational tasks. Jeff Seibert CEO of Crashlytics

  12. 12. What we’re going to show in the demo… A stack represents the cloud infrastructure and applications that you want to manage together. A layer defines how to setup and configure a set of instances and related resources. Then deploy your app to specific instances and customize the deployment with Chef recipes. Decide how to scale: manually, with 24/7 instances, or automatically, with load-based or time- based instances.
  13. 13. What is Chef and how does OpsWorks use it • Chef is an open-source framework that automates software deployment and configuration. • Whenever a change happens on your stack, or upon request, all instances are notified and recipes are run. RecipesLifecycle Events Metadata

  15. 15. OpsWorks and Chef • OpsWorks uses Chef Solo to configure the software on the instance • OpsWorks provides many Chef Server functions to users. – Associate cookbooks with instances – Dynamic metadata that describes each registered node in the infrastructure • Supports "Push" Command and Control Client Runs • With Chef 11, broader support for community cookbooks
