I like the user experience improvements AWS has taken to AWS Management Console better. In fact, I was really very excited to see how AWS would plan to accommodate 100+ services and features on the front page of the AWS management console. Check this Reddit post.
www.awsiamlogin.com aims at providing easy access to manage and navigate across multiple Amazon Web Services (AWS) Accounts and bookmarking. AWS strongly recommends usage of IAM Access and the structure of the AWS IAM Login Portal or with AWS Alias; for which the URL isn’t rememberable (easily) thus leaning towards the usage of root account. Today DevOps and Cloud Architects have the need to manage across multiple AWS accounts and adding more to the problem of remembering the AWS IAM Portal.
Chances are this might be the first step engineers do right after launching a plain EC2 Windows Server instance. Windows servers tend to take some to stabilize before the full GUI becomes responsive. I was thinking what would be a good way to utilize the EC2 Run Command and this came to my mind. I have tested the solution in Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
Resource Groups are one of coolest but most obscure features in AWS. My theory around that was around due to the powerful search bar in EC2 AWS Management Console which can accept regex, range queries and auto-suggest the tags and their values. This is looks good as long as the components you manage are only EC2 instances.
I have briefly mentioned about how I prepared for the other AWS certifications – Solution Architect and SysOps Administrator in other posts. I cleared my AWS Developer certification last week. It was indeed developer focused, which translates to heavy coverage of DynamoDB, CloudFormation, ElasticBeanstalk, SQS, SNS, Opsworks. DynamoDB stood out without any doubt.
