In just a few clicks, you application is manageable with DAY2™ WMI. You can now create your custom operations dashboards, import any custom tasks/scripts you have for the application, automate operations, and generate compliance and security reports.
Operations and Administrators create a rule within a given DAY2 Application by selecting a cloud event or key system metric and defining the condition for which the rule will be triggered. One or more DAY2 Tasks must then be selected to control how the DAY2 platform should react to the condition being met. Tasks are then executed under the context of the user who created the rule and is visible within the Operations section of the DAY2 platform. The execution history for those tasks can later be accessed and reviewed both from within the Application itself and from Operations.
Multiple actions can be added to a single rule, with each action executed in parallel. But multiple conditions and conditional flows are not currently supported.
System metrics from EC2 and RDS Instances, EC2 Auto Scaling Groups and Load Balancers, NAT and Transit Gateways, and S3 buckets can be used as conditions to trigger DAY2™ CloudOps Automation Rules.
Key EC2 events such as Instance status changes (Instance Started/Stopped/Restarted/Terminated) and EBS Snapshot notifications (Snapshot created, deleted, copied, shared) can be used to trigger actions. An individual rule can be configured to check for events and data from an individual resource, or multiple resources can be selected. Metrics sourced from 3rd party monitoring tools, or applications running inside an EC2 instance are not currently supported.
Yes, provided the underlying AWS accounts and regions are managed by MontyCloud DAY2™.
Targeting a single account and region, however, provides an additional benefit where the choice of network-related parameters can be locked. This is advantageous for users who are not familiar with cloud networking concepts or to lock deployments into using a specific landing zone designated for that team. Network-related parameters cannot be locked for launch configurations that target multiple accounts/regions as network configurations are unique to each account and region.
Yes, if you have an existing Customer-Owned, Public or Private image available within your AWS account, blueprints that offer the selection of an AMI will display both the default AMI selection and your own images for selection during the launch configuration wizard.
DAY2™ secures your account credentials by accessing your account through a system generated restricted IAM role. When you onboard your AWS Account, DAY2™ creates a restricted role, only with permissions required to perform DAY2™ operations. This restricted role is created using secure AWS Well-Architected standards for cross-account access. This restricted role is not accessible by anyone including MontyCloud employees. DAY2™ does not need your AWS Credentials. Your AWS account is secure even with DAY2™ access.
