Is OpsWorks Stacks a dead product?


OpsWorks Stacks is still on Chef 12, and doesn't support Ubuntu 20.04. Today it was just outright broken for a few hours (any instance launches would fail). Is this product still being maintained?

  • +1 I m waiting for an answer for months now. I would add that it's not possible to launch recent instances types like r6, c6 families or all graviton instances that is really annoying for us

For those waiting for an update, I think it's worth looking at this article: and inferring what that means for the life of Stacks.

  • I'm also interested in your answer. Our web application is completely dependent on AWS OpsWorks. It is important for us to know if there is an OpsWorks end-of-life.


And another re:Invent passes with total radio silence on the Opsworks front. Sigh.
