Well Let us First see what is AWS -

  • AWS is a platform which offers various services to help customers concentrate only on their application(product), while managing software and other entities required to run your application is all done by AWS.
  • All you have to do is Create an AWS account, select the services, configure them to create an infrastructure and deploy your application

  • DevOps is the one which builds a bridge between the development and operation teams for faster release of products to market.
  • It makes use of set of tools like jenkins, Nagios, puppet, chef, Ansible and many more to support its lifecycle of commit, Build, deploy pipeline.
  • All you have to do is integrate these tools, deploy your application via pipeline

  • Both these terminologies are used for quicker development of product along with ease and proper management. So I would suggest you to learn both and get the AWS Solutions Architect Certification.
  • So let me Introduce you to AWS DevOps concept-
  • In Traditional DevOps you have to configure set of tools which is a long process, moreover many companies are migrating their business to cloud for quick deployment, vast and secure storage.

So to allow people to follow even DevOps strategy on cloud Amazon introduced DevOps on AWS.

  • For this AWS do offer set of Developer tools like -

  • These tools help you to perform same functionalities which are done via traditional DevOps method.
  • In this case for monitoring and tracking the performance of the product you don’t need to make use of external tools like nagios, datadog or any other, instead of them you can just enable services like CloudWatch and CloudTrail

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
  • Automation and Infrastructure as code reduce cloud complexity and system maintenance
  • 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
  • Eliminate downtime through cloud-based continuous operations

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

Hi, so you told about studying both aws and devops ,and also u said aws provides its own devops tool.
Can u make me clear ..?

Aws has its services in all the domains. Say for Kubernetes they have EKS service. For spark, they have EMR services. So you can use these tools according to your need.
