Description

AWS CloudFormation is a service that provides infrastructure as code (IaC), which practically means writing code using a descriptive language (JSON or YAML) that allows you to simply model, provision, and manage AWS and third-party resources. You construct a template that specifies all of the AWS resources you want (such as Amazon EC2 instances or Amazon RDS DB instances), and CloudFormation handles the provisioning and configuration for you. Thus, with CloudFormation you will be able to simplify infrastructure management, quickly replicate your infrastructure and easily control and track changes to your infrastructure. It's been found that AWS account {CloudAccount} does not use the service AWS CloudFormation.
