Benefits of clubbing AWS and DevOps-
- They together help in bringing products to market faster through faster access to development environments and streamlined developer processes

- They increase security with automated, repeatable processes that serve to eliminate fat-finger error and even more importantly, build security controls from the very beginning

Moreover clubbing DevOps and AWS is like, “If you can get both under same shelter then why to get them separately.”
