Developing software is mere to the foundation of the building. AWS (Amazon Web Services) provides various technology solutions for designing the software to deliver as per the expectation and requirements of the customers. Five major pillars have complied here to produce stable and efficient systems.

Operation Excellence:
It consists of the ability to run and manage systems with expected business value and constant support for improving procedures and processes. There are six basic principles followed for designing a system with operational excellence as follows:

  • Execute the operations as Code
  • Footnote for Documentations
  • Produce frequent, small, reversible changes
  • Frequent refinement on operation procedures
  • Prepared to face failures
  • Learn from every operational failure

Protection of information, systems, and assets are the main perspective in delivering the project or product with business value through risk assignments and migration strategies. This should be possible with the security pillar with the following major principles.

  • Implementation of a Strong Identity Foundation
  • Allows Traceability function
  • Security implementation in all layers
  • Security automation for a cost-effective solution
  • Preparation of security events at any time
  • Secure the data in transit or at idle


It includes the ability to recover the system from infrastructure or service disruptions, dynamic allocation of computing resources to meet demand, and migrate and resolve the misconfigurations or transient network issues. Five major design principles of Reliability as follows:

  • Validate the recovery Procedures
  • Automation in Failure recovering
  • Horizontal scaling to increase aggregate system availability
  • Avoid guessing capacity
  • Handling the automation changes effectively

Performance Efficiency
This pillar consists of the ability to utilize the allocated computed resources efficiently to meet system requirements and maintain it as per the demand and technology evaluation. There are five design principles as follows:

  • Implement advanced technologies
  • Globalize things in minutes of time
  • Encourage Cloud Storage for server-less architecture
  • Assessing on regular basis
  • Mechanical Sympathy

Cost Optimization
This is the vital pillar to produce a cost-effective solution with an ability to decrease or avoid unnecessary cost for sub optional resources with the following five design principlesAcquire a consumption modelPre measuring of overall efficiencyAvoid spending money on data center operationsPre analyze the expenditure and attribute it properlyUtilized existing managed services to reduce the cost of ownership.

Benefits of AWS Ops Automator Framework

AWS (Amazon Web Services) introduced a new Ops framework that help developer to create operation automation task for running actions in AWS environments with distinct support for multiple accounts and regions.

The vital function of Ops Automator is to run tasks at a scheduled time or event that operated on selected AWS resources. The actions of this framework are always ready to use in any AWS environment to develop actions or tasks. For Example, Create backup, Setting Capacity, Security Reporting, and Cleaning up the storage space.

It can also handle actions like task audit trails, resource selection, logging, scaling, API retires; long-running tasks and concurrent handle via queue throttling. Actions developed using Python and added to the Ops Automator solution easily. It can create CloudFormation scripts to configure tasks of Big Data, which is the part of the deployment.

Features of Ops Automator

Cross-Region and Cross-Account Automation

AWS CloudFormation templates are using to configure the task executions across various regions and accounts.

Complex Task Execution

Creating end-to-end scenarios to manage complex tasks through combining the multiple Ops Automator Stacks


Micro-Frameworks are generally lightweight which does not provide any additional features and functions like form validation, database abstraction layer, specific tools, and libraries.


Trigger the execution of tasks on AWS resources by using time, interval, and events of Ops Automator.

Extended Functionality

It helps to automate the snapshots, instances, and vertical scaling with extended features.

Some other features:

  • Custom resource allocation for configuring various tasks
  • Extensive use of Amazon CloudWatch stack and task-level matrix
  • AWS Lambda function according to the task-configurable
  • Integration of Parameter Store with AWS Systems Manager
  • Resource Selection with the help of Tag Filter Expression
  • Simplified and understandable configuration system
  • High-level security with Encrypted Amazon EBS Volumes
  • AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) for enabling customers to access policies and permissions


The AWS Well-Structured frameworks such as Ops Automation offers the best practices with the above five pillars for developing a system with reliable, secure, efficient, and cost-effective features. These frameworks consists collection of questions to review an architecture developed by the developer. It helps to produce stable and productive systems with focusing on functional requirements.
