Announcing AWS CloudFormation embedded stacks and Auto Scaling enhancements
We are excited to announce a set of new capabilities for AWS CloudFormation: Template composition and updated Auto Scaling support.
AWS CloudFormation templates can now contain references to other AWS CloudFormation templates enabling you to create re-usable building blocks encapsulating best practices. By using building blocks, you can enforce consistent configuration and standard operating policies across different stacks. In addition, we have updated the AWS CloudFormation support for Auto Scaling to allow you to define Auto Scaling policies, integrated with AWS CloudWatch alarms and Auto Scaling notifications.
We have added a number of additional example templates
to illustrate these new features to get you started quickly. For more information see:
