Enabling hybrid operations on AWS

Enabling hybrid operations on AWS

The operations phase, a phase in our IT resource lifecycle where said resource spend most of their time - be that in patching, maintaining, running ad-hoc scripts, configuring. It is hard enough to do that at scale sometimes, but doing it across a hybrid infrastructure can be even more daunting. How can we make that better? Let's have a look at some best practices, tools, and resources to make your day to day operations, that much easier!

    operational procedures as you do them • Evolve your workload -> evolve your operations. • Playbooks vs Runbooks • Game Days are fun!

    • Test your response procedures! • Game Days are still fun!
