Amazon launches Chef-based service for management platform OpsWorks

The compnay aims to provide a more advanced management platform

By , IDG News Service |  Application Management

CloudFormation focuses on providing foundational management capabilities without prescribing a particular model for development and operations. Customers define templates and use them to provision and manage AWS resources, operating systems and application code. In contrast, AWS OpsWorks is a higher-level service based on the DevOps method, according to Amazon

Compared to CloudFormation, OpsWorks also supports a narrower range of application-oriented resource types including EC2 instances, EBS (Elastic Block Store) volumes, Elastic IPs, and Amazon CloudWatch metrics.

OpsWorks is built on technology developed by Peritor, which developed the Scalarium management platform and was acquired by Amazon last year. Existing Scalarium can access their accounts on scalarium.com through August, 2013. They will contacted directly with information about migration in March, according to Amazon.
