Amazon launches AWS Proton in general availability
Amazon today announced the general availability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Proton, an app delivery service that provisions, deploys, and monitors microservices. The goal is to enable developers to build apps without having to configure, tune, and test their underlying resources. Each microservice has its own separate infrastructure, code templates, CI/CD pipelines, and monitoring that must be learned as well as updated. Proton handles provisioning the necessary AWS services, pushing code through the CI/CD pipeline, setting up monitoring and alarms, and compiling, testing, and deploying the code. There aren’t upfront commitments or fees to use Proton — customers pay only for the AWS services used to create, scale, and run apps.
