Amazon Cloud Control API is a set of common application programming interfaces (APIs) that make it easy for developers and partners to manage the lifecycle of Amazon Web Services resources. Cloud Control API provides five operations for developers to create, read, update, delete, and list (CRUDL) their cloud infrastructure.
Amazon Cloud Control APIs give developers the ability to use a set of standardized CRUDL APIs to manage services in an intuitive and descriptive way.
Amazon Cloud Control API gives developers standardized APIs that work with Amazon Web Services resources listed in the Amazon CloudFormation Public Registry.
Amazon Cloud Control API provides partners with theability to programmtically expose new Amazon Web Services features and services, typically on the day they launch.
How it works
Create, read, update, delete, and list Amazon Web Services resources
Amazon Cloud Control API makes it easy for developers to consistently manage hundreds of Amazon Web Services resources using standardized APIs. As an example, you can use Cloud Control API to create any supported cloud resource using a common CreateResource API.
Expose new Amazon Web Services resources to customers automatically
Amazon Cloud Control API remains up-to-date with the latest Amazon Web Services resources,
enabling Amazon Web Services partners to integrate their own solutions with Cloud Control API just once, and then automatically access the new Amazon Web Services and features without assuming additional integration work.
Provision resources with third-party infrastructure as code tools
Cloud Control API provides developers with the ability to provision Amazon Web Services resources with partner infrastructure tools such as HashiCorp Terraform and Pulumi.
HashiCorp provides cloud infrastructure automation software that enables organizations to provision, secure, connect, and run any infrastructure for any application.
“Amazon Cloud Control API makes it easier for our teams to build solutions to integrate with new and existing Amazon Wed Services capabilities," said James Bayer-EVP Product, HashiCorp. HashiCorp’s foundational technologies solve the core challenges around infrastructure so that teams can focus on business-critical tasks. Integrating HashiCorp Terraform with Amazon Cloud Control API means developers are able to use new Amazon Wed Services innovation as soon as they are available in Cloud Control API, typically on the day of launch.”
“Pulumi’s new Amazon Web Services Native Provider, powered by the Amazon Cloud Control API, gives Pulumi’s users faster access to the latest Amazon Web Services innovations, typically the day they launch, without any need for us to manually implement support," said Joe Duffy, CEO at Pulumi. "The full surface area of Amazon Web Services resources provided by Amazon Cloud Control API can now be automated from familiar languages like Python, TypeScript, .NET, and Go, with standard IDEs, package managers, and test frameworks, with high fidelity and great quality. Using this new provider, developers and infrastructure teams can develop and ship modern Amazon Web Services applications and infrastructure faster and with more confidence than ever before.”
