Since launching in early 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been the dominant entity in Cloud Computing.
Their offering includes such services as EC2 for elastic computing, S3 for simple object storage, RDS for relational databases, and many more. Software companies are utilizing the cloud model to not only scale applications as demand increases, but also control expenses related to software deployment.
Over the past year, I have found myself using AWS more and more across a variety of development projects. Amazon provides a graphical user interface called the AWS Management Console that provides full control over all its services. The AWS Management Console is suitable for many of the tasks involving setup and maintenance of your cloud infrastructure.
However, as I started to use more complex features in AWS, I quickly found myself requiring a more powerful and programmatic interface that I could script. as part of my development workflow. There are numerous SDKs available for accessing AWS.
The command-line interface offers fully-scriptable functionality, but processing the text of the responses incurred a lot of overhead. The Java SDK similarly has access to all the AWS features and the object-oriented library makes processing responses much easier.
But, the verbosity of the code - having to instantiate and construct a separate request object for every invocation - caused the scripts to grow large, even for simple use cases. Finally, I came across the Ruby SDK for AWS and haven’t looked back since.
