Amazon Web Services, an Amazon.com company today launched AWS OpsWorks, an application management solution for the complete lifecycle of complex applications, including resource provisioning, configuration management, deployment, monitoring, and access control.
With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, AWS OpsWorks enables developers to orchestrate all tasks required to model, deploy, scale, and maintain their applications.
AWS OpsWorks is designed to eliminate these challenges by providing a flexible, automated, and end-to-end solution: Supports a wide variety of application architectures and any software with a scripted installation; supports customizable deployments, rollback, patch management, auto scaling, and auto healing; promotes conventions and sane defaults, such as template security groups and also supports the ability to customize any aspect of an application's configuration.
"As our customers run more and more applications on AWS they are asking for more sophisticated tools to manage their AWS resources and automate how they deploy applications," said Scott Wiltamuth, vice president of Developer Productivity & Tools, AWS.
With the launch of AWS OpsWorks, we're providing customers with a new application management solution to automate the entire lifecycle - provisioning, deployment, configuration management, monitoring, and access control added Wiltamuth.
"With AWS OpsWorks, we can make decisions very quickly with the knowledge that our application will be consistently configured and managed. Our teams can decide which servers we need, and how many we need, in a very short timeframe," said Jesper Richter-Reichhelm, Head of Engineering at Wooga.
