Replicating the AWS Resources from one account to another account.

0 votes
We have a production AWS account with resources like EC2 instances, S3 buckets, EBS volumes, ELB instances etc. We want to create similar setup in the development AWS account also, for the sake of the developers to access the same. How do we setup something similar across different AWS accounts?

One way is to look at the AWS resources in the production AWS account and then create something similar in the development AWS account. AWS doesn’t provide a service for the above requirement.

But, AWS provides a feature called CloudFormer wherein an CloudFormation Template can be created from the existing AWS resources the production AWS account. And all the details of the AWS resources in the CloudFormation template. Then the template can be used to create similar AWS resources in the other account.

The catch is that CloudFormer is in Beta as of now and is not recommended for production purpose.
