AWS Cloud Formation

AWS Cloud Formation

Brillio has proven experience in managing cloud infrastructure of its clients in a simple yet effective manner. One of the challenges that organizations on cloud face is lack of standardization and control while provisioning resource(s). Brillio, by leveraging AWS Cloud Formation Templates, helps businesses focus more on their applications which are running on AWS than managing the resources used. AWS Cloud Formation is a service that helps in modeling and creating a collection of related AWS resources using templates, which describe all the resources to be created/ updated or deleted.



Users can design a Cloud Formation template using AWS Cloud Formation Designer or write one in a text file from scratch. Cloud Formation provisions the resources by internally making calls to services that have been described in the template.



Benefits:

  • Standardization of Infrastructure components: Single consistent experience and toolset to manage infrastructure irrespective of the fact where it resides, whether on-premise or on AWS cloud.


  • Reduction in manual effort: Provision infrastructure resources in a repeatable manner with the help of templates written as JSON or YAML files.
  • Easier tracking of provisioning of resources: Ability to integrate with version control systems for easier tracking
