Scenarios where OpsWorks is well suited:
  • You have a team that's heavily invested in AWS infrastructure and want to simplify the management of your EC2 instances.
  • You have a large proficient DevOps team and you're willing to put into the time to learn Chef and dig deep into operations management.
Scenarios where OpsWorks is less appropriate:
  • You don't have a proficient DevOps team or development team that is able to dedicate a considerable amount of time to learn Chef and get your instances configured.
  • You want to build an application that is infrastructure-agnostic that can easily be moved to different hosting on short notice.

Where you already have some Chef recipes to build your application boxes and are happy to run directly on VMs, OpsWorks really shines. It won't do anything too complex for you, so it only really works well for simple stacks (load balancers, application layers, database layers). If you want to do more complex infrastructure, Cloudformation or Terraform are probably worth looking at.
