AWS re:Invent 2017: Embrace DevOps and Learn How to Automate Operations (DEV306) – #AWS

Managing large-scale production environments can be complex – things will go wrong and learning to operate and manage these environments is critical. From routine tasks such as building AMIs to managing the lifecycle of your instances, investing in automation and tooling can help you detect problems earlier, minimize downtime, and reduce manual work. In this session, you will learn how to use Amazon EC2 Systems Manager to troubleshoot common issues, detect and remediate configuration drift, and automate common actions. You will learn how to author common actions and about community driven features of Systems Manager. You can use the same tools across Linux and Windows, in AWS and in hybrid environments. You will also hear from a Systems Manager customer on how they are using Systems Manager to better manage and operate their infrastructure.

Our customer, Ancestry, will talk about how they are using EC2 Systems Manager to manage their environment in an agile manner.
