Overview of this book

The DevOps movement has transformed the way modern tech companies work. Amazon Web Services (AWS), which has been at the forefront of the cloud computing revolution, has also been a key contributor to the DevOps movement, creating a huge range of managed services that help you implement DevOps principles. Effective DevOps with AWS, Second Edition will help you to understand how the most successful tech start-ups launch and scale their services on AWS, and will teach you how you can do the same. This book explains how to treat infrastructure as code, meaning you can bring resources online and offline as easily as you control your software. You will also build a continuous integration and continuous deployment pipeline to keep your app up to date. Once you have gotten to grips will all this, we'll move on to how to scale your applications to offer maximum performance to users even when traffic spikes, by using the latest technologies, such as containers. In addition to this, you'll get insights into monitoring and alerting, so you can make sure your users have the best experience when using your service. In the concluding chapters, we'll cover inbuilt AWS tools such as CodeDeploy and CloudFormation, which are used by many AWS administrators to perform DevOps. By the end of this book, you'll have learned how to ensure the security of your platform and data, using the latest and most prominent AWS tools.

Scaling is a long process that has the potential to be improved. In this chapter, we completed the first step and learned how to break a monolith application into multiple pieces leveraging the AWS services. This approach brings many advantages but also complicates our initial infrastructure, meaning that more time is spent on configuration, bug fixing, and the necessity to study new services. We have explored how powerful and useful all the AWS tools can be for scalability, but it can also sometimes be difficult to use this, especially the first time. Using automation with Terraform modules makes it possible to immediately achieve the result with our knowledge on module creator. In addition, hiding the complexity of a solution cannot help us in understanding what is really happening behind the scenes. This can be necessary during a bug fix. For this reason, some parts of the book, such as the Autos Scale, ALB, and the SSL certification, were completed using the web console and its...
