You can now use AWS OpsWorks to configure and manage Amazon EC2 and on-premises instances running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.1. AWS OpsWorks is a service that helps you automate operational tasks like code deployment, software configurations, package installations, database setups, and server scaling using Chef.
RHEL customers can now use OpsWorks to manage both their AWS and on-premises infrastructure. You can use Chef 11.10 and future supported versions with the OpsWork agent (version 3424 and above) to manage RHEL 7. OpsWorks for RHEL will have the same feature set as other OpsWorks supported Linux operating systems.
