Cloud Automation

 

Cloud automation and configuration management means controlling the setup, configuration and management of cloud services. Automation is vital for any dynamic system or one which needs to respond to change or self-heal.

Cloud automation helps you quickly build and configure systems that are consistent and repeatable — leading to immutable architecture and all of the advantages that delivers; stability, preventing configuration drift, advanced deployment methods, zero downtime deployments, consistent environments alongside efficient and effective Disaster Recovery options.

With cloud automation and configuration management, you can rapidly move from physical infrastructure to deploying secure production environments in the cloud with leading cloud service providers, including Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

What if you could turn your AWS systems on and off on a schedule?  In a development environment, you could have machines used by developers during the working day, but then turn them off in the evening and weekends.
