Introduction to AWS workflow service
AWS Workflow service is also known as Amazon SWF.
It helps the developers to build, run and scale a wide variety of background tasks that are standalone or might have parallel or sequential steps involved. In short, if we have to describe Amazon SWF then it can be classified as a fully managed task coordinator in the cloud environment.
If your application takes almost say 500 milliseconds to execute and gives you the output. In this case, you need to understand where exactly the processing state has accomplished and just in case if you can always retry and recovery from the task failure. In these cases, Amazon SWF can definitely help you.
Benefits of Using Amazon SWF:
The following are the benefits that are associated with Amazon SWF.
Easy:The first and foremost thing that Amazon SWF talks about is to separates that control flow steps vs the actual units of work which has a business logic associated. Using this approach it is easy for the individual to change the business logic if they have to and this can happen without changing any of the control flow.
Reliable:The Amazon SWF is executed under Amazon’s high-availability data centers, so the tracking and processing engine is available whenever the applications are needed.
Simple:The Amazon SWF completely replaces the complexity of having custom coded workflow solutions and ignites the use of process automation software with a complete workflow management web service. Thus reducing some of the infrastructure related activities from the developers and giving them time to go through their functionality.
Scalable:As the SWF process is running inside the Amazon cloud services, the application usage is scalable and there is no restriction.
Flexible:All the application components and logic can be written in any programming language and one can execute them on the cloud itself and there are no restrictions on this. Thus making this very flexible to use.
AWS Cloud formation:
Using AWS CloudFormation, it gives an opportunity for the developers and the system administrators for an easy and creative way to manage and create a collection of related AWS resources and updating them in an orderly fashion.
One can create their own templates describing the AWS resources and associated dependencies. Once the templates are designed and if you want to visualize your templates then you can use a drag and drop interface which is exclusively built for this, i.e. AWS CloudFormation Designer.
