What is AWS config?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 5:43 pm

AWS config is a platform-agnostic configuration management and orchestration tool that enables cloud customers to centrally manage and deploy applications and services across multiple AWS regions. AWS config helps you automate the deployment of applications and services using config files, making it easy to switch between AWS regions and clouds.

PRO TIP: AWS Config is a service that provides you with an inventory of your AWS resources and their configurations. It also lets you know when these configurations change so that you can track changes and maintain compliance. However, it is important to note that AWS Config is not a replacement for security features like IAM or security groups.

AWS config also provides centralized management of application and service dependencies, helping you avoid operational complexity and improve agility.

AWS config enables you to easily deploy applications and services in the cloud, manage dependencies, and scale your applications across multiple regions. With AWS config, you can centrally manage your application and service configurations, making it easier to switch between AWS regions and clouds.
