What is AWS CloudFormation?

You can use AWS CloudFormation’s sample templates or create your own templates to describe the AWS resources, and any associated dependencies or runtime parameters, required to run your application. You don’t need to figure out the order in which AWS services need to be provisioned or the subtleties of how to make those dependencies work.

How developers use AWS CloudFormation and Syncano
Avatar of CloudRepo
CloudRepo uses AWS CloudFormationAWS CloudFormation

Manually clicking around the AWS UI or scripting AWS CLI calls can be both a slow and brittle process.

We needed to be able to reconstruct CloudRepo's infrastructure in case of disaster or moving to another AWS Region.

Setting up our infrastructure with CloudFormation allows us to update it easily as well as duplicate or recreate things when the need arises.

Opstax uses CloudFormation for anything infrastructure related! CloudFormation allows us to use infrastructure-as-code as a constant blueprint/map of our environment. It means we can accurately and efficiently deploy replicated or new infrastructure with no time wasted clicking around and no human error.

Manage infrastructure as codes. Native AWS solution so it has better support to AWS resources than Terraform, also can leverage AWS Business Support.
