Amazon Release New Simple Workflow Service

Amazon's latest offering, the Simple Workflow Service, has finally been released in order to help customers build resilient, scalable applications with ease.

The company claimed that the new facility will be well-equipped to handle multiple aspects that any customer will ever need - whether it's for the usage of a sophisticated data analytics programme, the need to automate business processes for insurance and/or finance applications, or even the smooth management of an efficient cloud infrastructure management service. Amazon SWF has a built-in mechanism that makes it possible to enforce a coordination amongst all processing phases from within the same application.

Using a simple API that can be implemented by using codes written in virtually any language, API is also compatible with Amazon's EC2 platform.

"With Amazon SWF, developers can now easily coordinate distributed application components across on-premises and cloud environments using their choice of programming languages," Reto Kramer, General Manager at AWS Application Connection Services said in a statement from My Host News.

"By relying on Amazon SWF to handle the coordination of distributed task execution, developers can now focus on building the differentiating aspects of their applications and leave the undifferentiated heavy lifting of building and managing workflow engines to AWS," Kramer added.
