AWS Data Center Automation (DCA) continues to pioneer new functionalities and platforms, and our teams are architecting, building and operating scalable services that are at the core of AWS software infrastructure. DCA is responsible for building out the systems and software that orchestrate the physical work processes that occur inside all of AWS’ global datacenters.
