How do I manage multiple AWS accounts?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 6:28 pm

There are a few ways to manage multiple AWS accounts:

1. Use a single AWS account for all your AWS needs.

This is the easiest option, but it can be limiting if you want to use features that are specific to certain AWS accounts, such as using a different instance type for each account.

2. Use a separate AWS account for each of your applications or services.

This can be a more manageable solution, but it can be difficult to keep track of which account is responsible for which application or service.

PRO TIP: If you are planning to manage multiple AWS accounts, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, you will need to create a separate IAM user for each account. Secondly, you will need to use different credentials (access keys) for each account. Finally, you will need to use different regions for each account.

3. Use a third-party tool to manage your AWS accounts.

These tools allow you to manage multiple AWS accounts from a single interface, making it easier to track your account usage and manage your resources.

The best approach depends on the specific needs of your organization. However, all three options have some common drawbacks.

Using a single AWS account can be limiting, and managing multiple accounts can be difficult. Using a third-party tool can help make these tasks easier, but it can also be more expensive than using a single account.
