Introduction 

This blog will help you understand the various AWS Management Tools that may assist you in optimizing, controlling, and managing your AWS infrastructure. It's important to understand the different AWS management tools that AWS offers to assist you in operating your infrastructure efficiently and effectively as your infrastructure grows within AWS and your environment scales over time.

The following are the various services discussed in this blog:

  • AMAZON CLOUDWATCH
  • AWS CLOUDFORMATION
  • AWS CLOUDTRAIL
  • AWS CONFIG

AMAZON CLOUDWATCH

Amazon CloudWatch is a tracking service for Amazon Web Services (AWS) resources and applications. Organizations may use it to gather and track metrics, log files, and set alarms. Organizations can receive system-wide visibility into resource use, application performance, and operational health by leveraging Amazon CloudWatch. Organizations may respond as needed to keep applications functioning smoothly by utilizing these insights.

AWS CLOUDFORMATION

AWS CloudFormation is an AWS service that automates the configuration of AWS resources by using template files. Because it can automate the creation and deployment of various Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) services on the AWS, it's also known as an infrastructure automation or Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) tool and a cloud automation service. Almost every AWS service is supported by CloudFormation. CloudFormation may be used to automate the configuration of workloads running on AWS' most popular services, such as the EC2 Compute Service, S3 Storage Service, and the IAM Service for access control.

AWS CLOUDTRAIL

AWS CloudTrail is a web service that tracks and audits AWS API calls for an account. When an API request is made in your environment, AWS CloudTrail can follow it with a variety of information and record it in a Log, which is then sent to AWS S3 for storage, allowing you to see historical data about your API calls.

AWS CONFIG

AWS Config is a fully managed service that enables security and governance by providing organizations with an AWS resource inventory, configuration history, and configuration change alerts. Organizations may use AWS Config to find existing AWS resources, export an inventory of their AWS resources that includes all configuration data, and establish how a resource was configured at any given moment. Compliance audits, security analysis, resource change tracking, and troubleshooting are all possible with these capabilities.

FAQs

What tool do you use to automate AWS service actions?

You may use AWS Systems Manager to centralize operational data from multiple AWS services and automate tasks across your AWS resources.

What is AWS subnet?

In your VPC, a subnet is a group of IP addresses. AWS resources may be attached to subnets, such as EC2 instances and RDS DB instances. Subnets can be used to combine instances together based on security and operational requirements.

How many servers does AWS have?

Amazon, like many other major Internet companies, is secretive about its infrastructure, including how many servers it uses. However, according to a study, Amazon Web Services uses at least 454,400 servers in seven data center hubs worldwide.

What are additional CloudTrail features available after creating a trail?

To deliver your CloudTrail events to Amazon S3, Amazon CloudWatch Logs, and Amazon CloudWatch Events, set up a CloudTrail trail. This allows you to use features that assist you in archiving, analyzing, and responding to changes in your AWS resources.
