Amazon Web Services
- A broad spectrum of worldwide computing, storage, database, analytics, applications, and deployment services are provided by the cloud computing platform AWS (Amazon Web Services).
Millions of users worldwide, including government organizations, Fortune 500 businesses, and startups, rely on AWS.
- Developers may package and distribute apps in a lightweight, portable manner with the help of Docker, a containerization platform.
- As Docker containers are isolated from one another and the underlying infrastructure, managing and deploying them is simple.
- Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration platform that automates many of the tasks involved in managing containerized applications.
- Kubernetes allows developers to deploy and manage containerized applications at a scale.
- Jenkins is an open-source automation server that helps developers automate their build, test, and deployment pipelines.
- Jenkins is used by millions of developers around the world to automate their CI/CD (continuous integration and continuous delivery) workflows.
- An open-source infrastructure as code (IaC) tool called Terraform enables declarative infrastructure management for developers.
- AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform are just a few of the cloud platforms where Terraform can be used to manage infrastructure.
- Developers can automate the configuration and management of their servers and infrastructure with the help of Ansible, an open-source configuration management tool.
- As Ansible is agentless, no software needs to be installed on the target systems for them to use it.
