Configuration management is a process for keeping your computer systems consistent, both with running servers and servers yet to be built. Configuration management helps you centrally define the exact state of your infrastructure. AWS offers tools to aid you in the configuration management aspects of your AWS deployments. Explore the concept of configuration as code (CaC) and its key benefits. Investigate the features of the AWS OpsWorks and the AWS Config services. Discover AWS OpsWorks Stacks for managing applications and servers, OpsWorks for Chef Automate with powerful automation tools for security and compliance, and the infrastructure and application management tools of OpsWorks for Puppet. Examine the various OpsWorks lifecycle events and finish this course by using the AWS Config service to evaluate and monitor the configurations of your AWS resources. This course is part of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the AWS Certified DevOps Engineer Professional (DOP-C01) certification exam.
