Welcome to the SushiHangover PowerShell-Scripts wiki!

This wiki will cover the basics of using the scripts in this repository and mainly deal with using PowerShell with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Once I pull all my scripts together and get them into modules, the following services should be well covered by the PowerShell 3.0+ environment:

  • Amazon CloudFront, a content delivery network (CDN) for distributing objects stored in S3 to so-called "edge locations" near the requester.
  • Amazon CloudWatch, provides monitoring for AWS cloud resources and applications, starting with EC2.
  • Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) provides persistent block-level storage volumes for EC2.
  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) provides scalable virtual private servers using Xen.
  • Amazon Elastic MapReduce allows businesses, researchers, data analysts, and developers to easily and cheaply process vast amounts of data. It uses a hosted Hadoop framework running on the web-scale infrastructure of EC2 and Amazon S3.
  • Amazon ElastiCache provides in-memory caching for web applications.
  • Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) provides a scalable database server with MySQL and Oracle support.
  • Amazon Route 53 provides a highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) web service.
  • Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) provides bulk and transactional email sending.
  • Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) provides Web Service based storage.
  • Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) provides a hosted message queue for web applications.
  • Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) provides a hosted multiprotocol "push" messaging for web applications.
  • Amazon SimpleDB, allows developers to run queries on structured data. It operates in concert with EC2 and S3 to provide "the core functionality of a database."[5]
  • Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) creates a logically isolated set of Amazon EC2 instances which can be connected to an existing network using a VPN connection.
