Running workloads on the Cloud can help customers reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) while increasing agility and scalability. When transforming their operations for the Cloud, it’s imperative organisations understand cloud security controls and enable them to correctly protect and secure their data.

HeleCloud combines AWS Secrets Manager and the AWS Systems Manager Run Command into a solution that automatically rotates secrets for databases running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). In addition to automatically rotating your secrets, it allows you to access them in applications running on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS).

In this blog, we will explore the HeleCloud solution and walk through the code snippets and steps required to set up automatic credentials rotation of Microsoft (MS) SQL Server running on Amazon EC2.
