We are using Terraform for infrastructure-as-code (IAC) and have created modular templates with advanced bootstrapping (using PowerShell) for build and deployment orchestration to transform base AMI's for their zone-specific purpose. Auto-scaling groups alongside CloudWatch and health checks are leveraged to treat servers as cattle and not pets.
