In this video, work with CloudFormation to understand how to launch sets of service for cost management.
- [Instructor] A key aspect to controlling AWS service cost…is control, and what I mean by that is using…best devops management techniques to avoid…launching services or changing configurations…via clicking on the console for any sort…of production situations.…So at the lowest level this would be mean using scripts…that you run against the command line interface tools,…or programmatically creating EC2 instances, RDS,…so on and so forth.…But Amazon includes a tool that I find very useful…around all types of control, including cost control,…and that's CloudFormation.…
So CloudFormation is a service…that allows you to script out the configuration…of your AWS services so, EC2, EDS, Lamda, whatever,…and then to execute that script,…which is just a type of a text file,…and spin up those service instances.…What's great about this is this can be used…for security purposes, in other words,…only that which is listed in CloudFormation template…or script file can be run.…
It's also used for change control.…You can actually diff these scripts over time…
