Learn how to migrate and modernize stateless applications and run them in a Kubernetes cluster.

While working on different web projects I have accumulated a large pool of tools and services to facilitate the work of developers, system administrators and DevOps.

Almost any php, python or ruby developer deals with cloud servers and at least once had to configure and manage AWS services.

I've prepared a list of SaaS that takes the pain out of system management and configuration.

New Relic for Amazon Web Services

Whether you've already moved to the Cloud or are getting ready to migrate, New Relic helps Amazon Web Services (AWS) users improve the performance and end-user experience of their applications.


Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers a collection of elastic and highly scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions, the most well known being Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Puppet and Puppet Enterprise are integrated with a variety of AWS services to give you the ability to provision, configure, and manage dynamic public cloud infrastructure. Ready to make the move to the cloud?


Chef and Amazon Web Services (AWS) make a great team. If you're already using AWS, or thinking of moving some of your data center services to the cloud, Chef's tight integration with AWS will make sure that your infrastructure is fast and agile.

If you are moving all or part of your application infrastructure to the cloud, then you are probably beginning to realize that the cloud is more than just a bunch of servers. Sure, you can manage your cloud as a traditional data-center (and Ansible makes that super-easy). But if you are beginning to take advantage of a wide range of cloud services to build your apps in new, dynamic and distributed ways, you need an automation tool that can keep up.
