We've recently discovered two resources that will make your life a little easier should you work with Amazon Web Services (AWS) either as a data manager or developer. Ylastic
is a tool built upon AWS Infrastructure Services. With this tool, you can manage Amazon S3, EC2, SQS, and SimpleDB all from one easy to use interface. The Ylastic tool
also allows users to set up monitoring, alerts, reporting tools and functional dashboards to keep tabs on one's AWS cloud computing utilization and health.
Also, if you are a developer, the Amazon Web Services Developer Relations team has collected the most used data types, function calls and command line tools for their popular services in Quick Reference Cards
. The cards are available for Amazon EC2
, Amazon SQS
, Amazon DevPay
, Amazon Mechanical Turk
, Fulfillment Web Service
and Amazon Associates Web Service
, with more guides to come in the coming months.
