AWS DevOps Explained: Tools and Architecture

AWS DevOps is Amazon’s answer for the DevOps methodology. It is utilizing its cloud infrastructure and dedicated resources and services. A combination of flexible benefits is offered by AWS   as it allows designers in developing and delivering products quickly. AWS DevOps practices have made all of this possible. It is simply finding the provision and management of infrastructure.

Besides, it also helps in expanding application code, automatic software release procedures. We can track the performance of the application and infrastructure, which will assist users in securely storing and version source coding for applications. While creating, checking, and extending to either on-site environments or AWS, we can store information.

Cloud computing has been classified into three main categories:

  • Software as a service(SaaS)
  • Platform as a service(PaaS)
  • Infrastructure as a service(IaaS)

AWS comes under the IaaS category as it is a flexible instant computing network that could be completely managed by the user. It also includes virtual servers and operating systems. Let’s continue our understanding by investigating AWS DevOps architecture.

AWS DevOps architecture

Suppose we need to break down the underlying design of the system. In that case, it is possible only by using AWS EC2 as our example for obtaining a better idea about what is involved in implementing DevOps on AWS. EC2 is an elastic computing cloud, and it permits users to configure virtual machines and their infrastructure from a center console. Automation helps the administrators in making sure resources suit the needs of their company. It makes the whole process more cost-effective and efficient.

Balancing pack

Many structures of the web application do support load balancing. This virtual network appliance allocates EC2 traffic by several available web server resources. It depends upon traffic demands, and we can increase or reduce the traffic for automating this AWS that provides the elastic load balancing operation.

Cloudfront on Amazon

This service contributes content like a website and may include forms of features, uploading, and statics. We can operate in cooperation with other AWS components, and it is also compatible with non a w s clouds.

Protection collective Amazon

Security is one of the major concerns because of rising in hacking incidents. This feature serves as a firewall for inbound networks. For gaining access to EC2, customers are required to specify the approved protocols, ports, and source IP ranges. Users that allow one or more security groups to each EC2 instance will send the backed traffic to the correct instance.

Elastic cache

This web service handles the memory cache of the cloud. The elastic cache reduces the burden on the services. Therefore increasing efficiency and scalability.

Amazon relational system database

The RDS service simplifies the setup, application, and scalability of a cloud-based relational base. It also handles all the functions and activities of day-to-day database management and offers a scalable and cost-effective way to work with relational databases.

Simple storage service by Amazon

The AWS cloud implements two ways to access, back up, and store data from web applications and other properties. S3 equips users with a simple interface for accessing any amount of data. Users can access it from anywhere on the network at any time. Within containers, users should also store data as objects.
