Introducing AWS OpsWorks, a DevOps application management platform


Published on

AWS gives developers programmatic control of resources and the ability to grow as application needs dictate. However, managing an application can take more than simply starting EC2 instances. Software may need to be configured on the instances and changes to existing resources may be required. AWS now has an easier way to automate and control applications of any scale or complexity. In this session we will demonstrate OpsWorks, an integrated experience for managing the complete application lifecycle, including resource provisioning, configuration management, application deployment, software updates, monitoring, and access control. Attendees will leave this session with an understanding of how to control any aspect of an application’s configuration using OpsWorks Layers and Chef recipes, and automate common tasks to streamline operations.

Introducing AWS OpsWorks, a DevOps application management platform

  1. 1. Introducing 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… • Provision • Monitor • Deploy • Scale • Configure • Secure• As your app grows, routine operational tasks can become even more time-consuming and error-prone.• Don’t want to trade off control or flexibility for ease of use.
  3. 3. Once upon a time… Source:
  4. 4. This is what we want… Source
  5. 5. Recipes + Automation Source
  6. 6. In today’s infrastructure, everything is code…from the applications developers are writing, to your configuration management tools, to provisioning resources with AWS CloudFormation templates.
  7. 7. Introducing AWS OpsWorks• Integrated application management solution for ops-minded developers and IT admins• Model, control, and automate applications of nearly any scale and complexity• AWS Management Console, SDKs, or CLI• No additional cost
  8. 8. Why Use AWS OpsWorks? SIMPLE PRODUCTIVE FLEXIBLE POWERFUL SECUREEasy to use, Reduces Simplifies Reduces cost Enablesquickly get errors with deployments and time with control withstarted and conventions of any automation fine-grainedproductive and scripted scale and permissions configuration complexity
