AWS Service Catalog allows organizations to create and manage catalogs of IT services that are approved for use on AWS. These IT services can include everything from virtual machine images, servers, software, and databases to complete multi-tier application architectures. AWS Service Catalog allows you to centrally manage commonly deployed IT services, and helps you achieve consistent governance and meet your compliance requirements, while enabling users to quickly deploy only the approved IT services they need.

Today we are excited to announce that we have added the ability to use EC2 Run Command with your Linux instances.  Back in October, we launched EC2 Run Command, a feature that enables you to securely manage the configuration of your Amazon EC2 instances.  With the addition of Linux support, you can now easily and consistently administer your EC2 instances regardless of your choice in operating systems.

Slack is a messaging app that makes it easy for teams to communicate with each other and with their automated systems. AWS Lambda now makes it easy to get started building chat-based DevOps solutions with new console blueprints. These blueprints help you post Amazon CloudWatch alarms and other Amazon SNS messages to your team’s Slack channel as an incoming webhook, where your team can keep track of IT operations and quickly take action. Lambda is also the easiest way to create and run Slack commands. A new blueprint for building Slack commands using Lambda functions makes it quick to automate tasks and expose business logic as chat-based commands. AWS Lambda makes Slack developers more productive by eliminating the need to manage servers, scaling, and deployments when building commands and automated notifications. Both blueprints are available in JavaScript (Node.js) and Python.
