Amazon Web Services updates console to simplify management

The company hopes to streamline management with resource groups and Tag Editor tool

As enterprises have increased the number of systems they run on Amazon Web Service's cloud, keeping track of it all has become more difficult. But the company is now trying to rectify that with the help of better tagging.

Tags are used to organize resources on Amazon's cloud and have become increasingly important as companies use its infrastructure in more sophisticated ways. To make tags more useful, Amazon has upgraded its management console with resource groups and the Tag Editor tool.

Resource groups are used to create collections of servers, storage buckets, databases and so on. The Tag Editor is used to manage tags across services and regions, Amazon said in a blog post on Wednesday.

Until now, administrators had to tag their resources on a service-by-service and region-by-region basis, which is complicated and time consuming. However, with the Tag Editor, the process is streamlined by letting administrators do bulk editing and global tag searches.

The aim with the resource groups is to ease the whole management process by creating groups for each application, service, or collection of related resources that an administrator works with regularly.

The resource groups are specific to each administrator. So, each administrator in an account can create the groups that make the most sense for them. But it's also possible to generate a URL to share a resource group's settings with others in the same account.

The resource groups and the Tag Editor are available now and can be accessed from the new AWS menu in Amazon's management console.
