AWS’s root contradiction
June 7, 2017
If you work in the cloud, you’ve probably got an AWS account. It’s not just any account though, it’s the magical “AWS Root Account”. With this root user account, you are imbued with the god-like power to create worlds and smite instances. Your power is only limited by the thickness of your wallet (and the built in service limits). Of course such power should be reserved for only the most special occasions which is why the very first recommendation of AWS root accounts is to create an IAM user, then don’t use your root account.

I thought I had broken the unit and was about to be very sad.
