AWS Systems Manager Keeps Your Growing Infrastructure Manageable
For some companies and teams, a single S3 bucket is all they need — one bucket and their data storage needs are under control. But then they realize that an EKS cluster would help them deploy Kubernetes to keep a small app deployment project under control. Then maybe it’s not long until you have an Amazon EC2 instance so you can rent some VMs. As profits grow and projects expand, it usually doesn’t take long for all those “one or two” services to become several dozen. And when that happens, keeping them all under control becomes a job unto itself.
But that’s what AWS Systems Manager is for. If you and your team are already relying on Amazon for critical parts of your infrastructure, AWS Systems Manager gives you a place to control them all from. With it, you have a unified user interface from which you can group your EC2 instances, EKS clusters, S3 buckets and RDS instances. Not only do you have better control and less complication, but using AWS Systems Manager also shortens the time it takes to detect and resolve operational problems, plus it eliminates the cost and effort in scaling upward.
