Amazon Web Services (AWS), the largest public cloud available today, announced that it is adding to the site and multi-cloud his command Run the EC2 function, which allows users to run scripts and other leadership positions on multiple machines. So far, the service allows users to make multiple EC2 instances, or virtual slices of physical servers in data centers Amazon.
"Many customers also have AWS servers in the site or in another cloud, and were looking for a single, unified way to manage their scale hybrid environment," chief AWS evangelist Jeff Barr wrote in a blog.
The important thing here is that AWS beyond the provision of tools for working in the public cloud. The idea of the hybrid cloud infrastructure is to rely on multi - perhaps AWS private cloud and on-site, perhaps AWS and Microsoft Azure and private cloud, for example - and AWS now taking another step to adopt this scenario. What happened a few times before in the past. For example, in April 2015 it introduced AWS CodeDeploy site for support, providing ongoing services. The team AWS snowball to send efficiently hard drives AWS is also a recognition of classes that companies still maintain places of equipment in the data center, even if the product premise is to migrate data in AWS.
Support infrastructure in public clouds various AWS - either blue or Google Cloud Platform SoftLayer or IBM - less than previous and more surprising.
Last week, during a discussion on the stage of public sector AWS Summit in Washington, DC, AWS CEO Andy Jassy spoke about the disadvantages of using more than one public cloud:
"If you want to multi-cloud across the board, you must standardize all areas with the lowest common denominator ... Most companies and organizations do not want to give up all the management capacity of several piles - are .. it is a pain in the butt to do so, it is difficult, it is resource-intensive, it is expensive to try to have to delve into several (cloud) is really .. difficult and very expensive. you give a little of your lever purchase "However, Microsoft, the AWS closest competitor "was carried out in a cloud strategy exposure management tools of public and private infrastructure and providing the same tools on the site that is available in Azure. In essence, cloud Microsoft is more hybrid AWS. AWS is now making a bit more focus, standing beyond the cloud of Google, which made even less to embrace the scene computer. tools based management cloud Google and Microsoft's offer (Operations Management Suite and Stackdriver, respectively) that can enable customers to work with some Amazon's AWS infrastructure but usually, as you would expect from the market leader, has not extended the same courtesy the past. EC2 Run command is not the same type of service, but eventually your choice of underlying product design to work with the infrastructure that is not your own is taken.
All customers have to do is install the SSM Agent AWS 'on their servers. It works with both Windows Server (2003-2012) and Linux (Red Hat Enterprise Linux and CentOS). The agent can also be installed on the guest operating systems when VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V or KVM hypervisors are used.
The command feature extended run is available through new AWS regions: US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Northern California and Oregon), the European Union (Frankfurt, Ireland), Asia Pacific (Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo) and South America (Sao Paulo). AWS was first announced in October Run.
