AWS ElasticWolf Client Console is a client-side application for managing Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud resources with an easy-to-use graphical user interface. ElasticWolf is designed to work with all AWS regions, including the AWS GovCloud (US) Region.

ElasticWolf is packaged with all necessary tools and utilities to generate and deal with private and public keys and certificates, as well as a Windows ssh client for accessing Linux EC2 instances. In addition, it integrates easily with the AWS command line interface (CLI) tools so that you can use it and the CLI together.

ElasticWolf supports CloudFormation, DynamoDB, and Elastic MapReduce for the AWS GovCloud (US) Region as well as all other AWS regions. ElasticWolf uses the following products and services:

One of the advantages of using ElasticWolf is that you can easily manage resources in multiple AWS accounts and very quickly switch between different sets of credentials and different AWS regions. Simply click the current credentials listed in the lower-left part of the status bar and the view will change to Credentials. You can then select your desired credentials and activate them.

Another advantage of ElasticWolf is that it logs all API calls that it makes to your local disk. You can view these logs by selecting File | Show Access Log from the ElasticWolf menu. The Access Log is stored in the file access.log in your Mozilla profile folder. To find the location of that folder, select Preferences from the ElasticWolf navigation pane, and then select the Paths tab.

Please note: this is a legacy tool and you may want to try using the AWS Management Console to access and manage AWS services.
