    Fugue automates all the (AWS) things

    The reality is that modern enterprises are more complex than ever before – they use a myriad of different infrastructure patterns and managing all of that is hard.

Or they automate actions, but not with a tie-in to monitoring intelligence. This is where Fugue comes in – created by some folks with deep AWS experience, Fugue is all about policy-driven automation.
