Session: Well-Controlled Operations For Your AWS Infrastructure

Amazon has been continually expanding its fleet of cloud services and is launching products to its large catalog. Their existing services also keep receiving regular updates to add the capabilities they have to offer. Since the past few years, AWS has consolidated a lot of management features to operation services, like Systems Manager and added more administrative capabilities. On the other end, thanks to a strong user base, there are also pretty useful and effective open source tools built by the community that exist in the wild that have proved to be extremely useful and reliable for daily operations and deployments.

This talk uncovers a suite of AWS services in combination with third party tools that allow the infrastructure and platform teams running the cloud to effectively control their AWS operations. This includes handling and all the existing computation workloads and CI/CD pipelines and transitioning them to Infrastructure as Code by leveraging these relatively unknown options. The workflows introduced allow for comprehensive monitoring and securing the resources and can be applied wherever the customer are in their cloud journey.
