Amazon Web Services has rolled out some updates to its management console intended to please its mobile user base.
That goes double for Android users as AWS is introducing a new Console App for Android devices, which is intended to serve as a "companion to the full web experience."
Essentially, AWS clients can view and manage Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances and CloudWatch alarms from Android smartphones.
Some of the more specific features consist of stopping/rebooting EC2 instances, organizing CloudWatch alarms by state or time, and getting detailed AWS service health status updates -- including recent AWS service events and notifications. (The last one should prove especially helpful in the case of outages.)
Beyond the Android-only app, the tablet-based console improvements center around optimization.
