The success stories and technological potential of the partnership between Sky.One and AWS are always highlighted here on our blog. We have already seen that cloud computing can serve different types of market segment, reduce costs and promote business growth.

In addition to offering a lot of innovation, you can have access to a large set of tools to better manage your infrastructure and projects. Cloud management is considered critical and should be prioritized by IT teams responsible for all operational and support infrastructure. And to succeed in this challenge, there is a set of AWS tools that manage, monitor and support all the work that needs to be done.

Understanding AWS Tools for Cloud IT Management

While all tools have features that set them apart, they are also focused on one key concept: providing information about cloud computing systems. Leading cloud infrastructure management products offer similar features:

  • Support for different cloud types ( public, private and hybrid )
  • Support the creation and support of resources such as servers, storage and/or applications
  • Providing reports on the status of the infrastructure used, uptime, response time, quota usage, etc.

Below, we've compiled a list of IT management tools for cloud computing provided by AWS. They aim to manage costs, usage and, consequently, optimize the cloud.

Resource provisioning

In order to manage the provisioning of resources and deployed software, we offer:

  • AWS CloudFormation
  • AWS Marketplace
  • AWS Service Catalog

configuration management

The features below aim to manage installing packages, configuring software, applying system patches, and performing administrative tasks:

  • AWS OpsWorks
  • EC2 Systems Manager

Monitoring and performance

To monitor, create alarms and dashboards of metrics, logs and events generated by your AWS resources and applications, we have at your disposal:

  • Amazon CloudWatch

Governance and compliance

We also offer tools for tracking configuration changes and automated governance, user activity and AWS API call recording, and self-service IT catalogs for enterprises:

  • AWS Config
  • AWS CloudTrail

resource optimization

With the multitude of tools provided by AWS, it is important for technology managers to start their assessments as early as possible and introduce them into the management process. By the very nature of the IT infrastructure, being vast and fast, it is necessary for managers to constantly review the use of these tools, as well as their efficiency in managing the cloud.
