AMI Lifecycle Management for Amazon EC2
Field Engineering Manager Dave Johnson of rPath will demo the rBuilder Appliance Creator and rBuilder Catalog for EC2 to automate the assembly of software components, the creation of AMIs and the deployment of images to EC2. The solution is free for AWS developers. It enables the ability to securely integrate your AWS account credentials, allowing you to launch, manage, and retire application images for EC2 directly from within the product. Dynamic search and catalog capabilities provide a basis for future management activities directed at large scale catalogs of machine images.
