AWS has recently released updates to OpsWork that will enhance its users’ experience. OpsWork is an application management service that lets user easily release applications, regardless of their size or complexity.
Now, AWS has linked OpsWorks with Amazon EC2 Container Service, a highly-scalable container management service that lets you easily run applications on clusters of Amazon EC2 instances. This means OpsWorks now supports EC2 Container Service; it can make it easy for you to provision and manage any ECS Container Instances that are on Ubuntu 14.04 and Amazon Linux 2015.03 AMI. You can read about how to use this new feature at the OpsWorks User Guide.
As an additional feature, OpsWorks now also supports Red Hat Linux (RHEL) 7. This simply means you can provision and manage EC2 instances on RHEL 7 or manage any existing instances already on RHEL 7. You even have several launch options: either set RHEL 7 as default for new stacks, or make RHEL 7 the default for an existing stack, or keep your default settings and launch RHEL 7 for new instances.
You can use these features starting today.
