AWS is one of three major cloud platforms that Hava generates automated cloud diagrams for. AWS offers a host of services that fall under several major service categories. In this post we’ll take a look at the services available for you to build, manage and monitor applications on the AWS cloud platform.

The A2A pub/sub functionality provides topics for high-throughput, push-based, many-to-many messaging between distributed systems, microservices, and event-driven serverless applications. Using Amazon SNS topics, your publisher systems can distribute messages to a large number of subscriber systems including Amazon SQS queues, AWS Lambda functions and HTTPS endpoints. The A2P functionality enables you to send messages to users at scale via SMS, mobile push, and email.

Ledgers are typically used to record a history of economic and financial activity in an organization.

Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment, from capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling to application health monitoring.

To mitigate endpoint failure, Global Accelerator automatically re-routes your traffic to your nearest healthy available endpoint.

So there you have it, most of the major services provided by AWS to build, deploy and monitor your applications and data in the AWS cloud. These are the most popular services used for the bulk of applications developed by organisations. There are a lot more services provided by AWS in specialised areas like Media, IoT, Quantum computing, robotics, machine learning and VR which we haven’t covered here.

In upcoming posts we’ll take a look at Developer tools and the many AWS management and governance tools provided by AWS.

If you are working with AWS, GCP or Azure for that matter and value your time and sanity, Hava fully automates the generation and updating of your network topology diagrams and AWS well-architected compliance reporting.

We’d love it if you took a free trial to see Hava in action with your infrastructure.
