Possibly in an effort to help alert customers about potential outages to AWS that happened recently, Amazon has released a new set of tools for developers to create new notification and alerting systems into their products that are built on AWS. The tools connect with AWS Health.
AWS Health provides ongoing visibility into the state of your AWS resources, services, and accounts. The service gives you awareness and remediation guidance for resource performance or availability issues that may affect your applications that run on AWS. AWS Health provides relevant and timely information to help you manage events in progress, as well as be aware of and prepare for planned activities. The service delivers alerts and notifications triggered by changes in the health of AWS resources, so you get near-instant event visibility and guidance to help accelerate troubleshooting.
The new tools are located on GitHub: https://github.com/aws/aws-health-tools
