The AWS Management Console is the central management tool for Amazon Web Services (AWS). Through the console, you can easily manage your cloud computing, cloud storage and other resources running on the Amazon Web Services infrastructure. But what’s really in the AWS Management Console? And how do you use it? This guide gives you all the information you need to get started with AWS Management Console, including a brief tour of its features.
What Is the AWS Management Console?
The AWS Management Console is a browser-based GUI for Amazon Web Services (AWS). Through the console, a customer can manage their cloud computing, cloud storage and other resources running on the Amazon Web Services infrastructure. Customers are able to use native Amazon Web Services applications that run in your web browser or they can create scripts using tools like Bash and Python. These scripts automate processes and keep tasks executing without human intervention. Additionally, you can use API tools such as JSON parsing tools to retrieve information from AWS servers.
Getting Started With the AWS Console
The first thing you’ll want to do after signing up for Amazon Web Services is visit its management console. This can be done through either your web browser or by downloading a desktop client. The console will let you manage your cloud computing and storage resources, so it’s well worth spending some time here in order to familiarize yourself with what’s available.
How Users Access The AWS Console
Customers connect to and use Amazon Web Services by using a web browser. The most common web browsers used on desktop computers include: Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 and above, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox 3.6 and above, Apple Safari 4.0 and above. On mobile devices (such as an iPad or Android tablet), customers are typically using: Apple Safari 5.1 or Google Chrome 15 or higher (desktop view only). Customers can also connect through a web-enabled application such as Outlook or Excel that supports connection through OData v2.0 protocol . Lastly, customers can access their services by using a command line interface from within a script via REST APIs .
What Does the AWS Console Look Like?
The console consists of two separate areas, but they can be expanded so that they appear as one. The stacks are tabs at the top of your screen, which will give you access to different tools or resources within Amazon Web Services. The resources are located beneath these tabs and represent actual services or actions within Amazon Web Services. In order to perform any kind of action within Amazon Web Services, you need to first have a resource selected within your resources tab (for example, an S3 bucket). Once it’s selected, click on an available stack tab (like configuration), where you can then apply certain functions or settings relative to that particular service.
How Users Interact With Resources
The Amazon Web Services (AWS) management console is a browser-based GUI that allows customers to manage their cloud computing, cloud storage and other resources running on AWS. Users interact with their resources through icons or menus in a navigation pane on their left side. From here, they can create or manage any number of resources within that resource type. For example, users who have deployed an EC2 instance can connect directly from their navigation pane to the EC2 management console to perform actions like modifying its instance type, tagging it for tax reasons or increasing/decreasing its allocation of EBS volumes.
Managing Resources Using Wizards
Amazon Web Services provides wizards that make it easy for customers to get started with popular resources. For example, Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) can be provisioned in a few minutes using one of its wizards. Customers only need to provide basic information like bucket name and region of operation; from there, they can create new buckets and upload files. This is just one example: Amazon EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud), IAM (Identity and Access Management), RDS (Relational Database Service) are other services with available wizards. Wizards tend to only allow customers to select the most popular options during setup so customization has more limitations than other management features.
