AWS Automation & Workflows

Take control of AWS with our powerful Rules Engine




GorillaStack Alleviates Pain Points In The Cloud

Run Away Costs
As organisations scale more and more, usage inside the cloud and the resulting costs can begin to spiral out of control.

Pressure From The Finance Team
One result of the runaway costs can be demand from the finance team to create savings and measure usage.

Scripts Wreaking Havoc
Scripts can be laborious, onerous to maintain and inflexible. As AWS constantly changes its schemas, you have to stay on your toes to adapt.

Single Points of Human Failure
An employee who creates maintenance scripts isn’t scalable & often doesn’t stick around. Once they’re unavailable, organisations run into trouble.

Complexity In Cloud Management
Maintaining the foundational services of an AWS environment from within the console can be complicated and restrictive.

Inflexible Control & Permissions
Organisations that want to permit their engineers granular controls over their infrastructure find it hard to scale permissions and cede control.
