This lesson explains the different deployment strategies for OpsWorks. OpsWorks deployments can be done manually, by rolling updates, or by blue/green deployments. In this lesson, we’ll go over each of these techniques and discuss the pros and cons of using each method. We'll also go through a hands-on walkthrough of a manual deployment.
Note: A common cause for OpsWorks instances not starting is a problem with the VPC configuration for Internet access. For details, see: https://aws.amazon.com/premiumsupport/knowledge-center/linux-instance-start-opsworks/
