What is AWS Proton?
AWS Proton is a fully managed application deployment service for applications running on containers or serverless environments.Proton enables Platform or Operations teams to effectively manage all the various tools used by the development team for infrastructure provisioning, code deployments, monitoring and updates.
How does AWS Proton work?
Platform or Operations teams have a complex job of maintaining hundreds of microservices that involves changing CI/CD configurations, infrastructure resources etc.,Now in order to streamline all the operations, Protons allows platform teams to create a “Stack” . This Stack contains all the necessary information that is needed to provision, deploy, and monitor a service, including compute, networking, code pipeline, security, and monitoring. Then these published Stacks are accessed by the development team using the self-service interface to quickly deploy their application code with minimum configurations.Below is the pictorial description of Proton’s working.
What are the benefits of using AWS Proton?
◆ A curated self-service interface for developers to quickly deploy application code.
