Amazon Web Services has launched AWS OpsWorks to help developers manage the complete application lifecycle.
The move recognizes that more and more applications are running in the cloud and that developers have been using third-party tools - perhaps at the expense of flexibility, control or custom tooling - at least that's Amazon's story - to manage resource provisioning, configuration management, deployment, monitoring and access control.
OpsWorks is supposed to automate things end-to-end so developers can orchestrate the tasks required to model, deploy, scale and maintain their applications.
It's said to support a variety of application architectures and any software with a scripted installation.
It uses the Chef framework so developers can use existing recipes or leverage community-built configurations.
Amazon says it supports customizable deployments, rollback, patch management, auto-scaling and auto-healing.
Application updates can be deployed by updating a single configuration and clicking a button, reducing the time spent on routine tasks.
It also supports the ability to customize any aspect of an application's configuration. Developers can reproduce exact configurations on new instances and apply changes to all instances for consistency.
There's no additional charge for AWS OpsWorks - customers only pay for the AWS resources needed to store and run their applications. It's available in all public AWS regions.
