A common theme that ran through the quarterly results of the companies: the strength in cloud businesses. This isn’t surprising, given the lockdowns necessitated by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that led to remote working and studying, heightening the demand for cloud services.
There is something very powerful about automating even the little things. We sometimes think as automation as the simple maths of saving a given number of minutes/seconds by a given number of times a day but the compound effect is much greater.
As you will be setting up more automation for your deployments, you will run into and solve problems many times more critical than saving a few minutes a week.
Amazon EC2 (AWS) CLI tools (Command Line Tools) wrap the Amazon EC2 API actions. These tools help us to Manage Amazon EC2 services through command line interface. We can also use them inside scripts for task automation like backups, creating snapshots etc.
