No doubt if you are an AWS user or administrator, you know it is a tedious process to manage your images of instances in an AWS EC2 environment. Manual labor intensive script writing is how you are managing this process today which can result in the mismanagement of images resulting in higher costs, human error, and lost time. Imagine if you could automate the entire scheduling and management process. Would this make your life better?
