This is the third post in a series about connecting to your EC2 instances. In the first post I talked about EC2 Instance Connect and the second one was all about Systems Manager Session Manager. In this third post, I’ll have a brief comparison between the two, before looking at some ways to minimise needing this access.
This post finishes the small series of posts on the CMD blog. It’s been fun to write and it made me look deeper into some possibilities for connecting to your instances. My preference there remains the same however, and that’s what is highlighted in this post. Avoid needing to connect in the first place.
