AWS CloudFormation supports AWS OpsWorks

by Chris Barclay | on | Permalink | Comments |  Share
Today we launched the ability for AWS CloudFormation to provision and update AWS OpsWorks resources such as stacks, layers and applications. You can include both OpsWorks and other AWS resources such as Amazon VPC, Elastic Load Balancing or Amazon RDS in a single CloudFormation template. This makes it easy to document, version control, and share your OpsWorks configuration. For example, you can create development environments that are exact replicas of your production environments.
 
We have a sample CloudFormation template that provisions the OpsWorks PHP application described in the Getting Started Walk Through  and a sample CloudFormation template that extends the walk through to scale out with Elastic Load Balancing inside a VPC. Please refer to the documentation for more details.
