AWS OpsWorks in the Virtual Private Cloud

0 comments

I am pleased to announce support for using AWS OpsWorks with Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). AWS OpsWorks is a DevOps solution that makes it easy to deploy, customize and manage applications. OpsWorks provides helpful operational features such as user-based ssh management, additional CloudWatch metrics for memory and load, automatic RAID volume configuration, and a variety of application deployment options. You can optionally use the popular Chef automation platform to extend OpsWorks using your own custom recipes. With VPC support, you can now take advantage of the application management benefits of OpsWorks in your own isolated network. This allows you to run many new types of applications on OpsWorks.

For example, you may want a configuration like the following, with your application servers in a private subnet behind a public Elastic Load Balancer (ELB). This lets you control access to your application servers. Users communicate with the Elastic Load Balancer which then communicates with your application servers through the ports you define. The NAT allows your application servers to communicate with the OpsWorks service and with Linux repositories to download packages and updates.
