AWS re:Invent 2014 | (APP301) AWS OpsWorks Under the Hood

Published on Nov 14, 2014

AWS OpsWorks helps you deploy and operate applications of all shapes and sizes. With AWS OpsWorks, you can model your application stack with layers that define the building blocks of your application: load balancers, application servers, databases, etc. But did you know that you can also extend AWS OpsWorks layers or build your own custom layers? Whether you need to perform a specific task or install a new software package, AWS OpsWorks gives you the tools to install and configure your instances consistently and help them evolve in an automated and predictable fashion. In this session, we dive into the development process including how to use attributes, recipes, and lifecycle events; show how to develop your environment locally; and provide troubleshooting steps that reduce your development time.
