AWS Step Functions announces the availability of Versions and Aliases, improving resiliency for deployments of serverless workflows. [AWS Step Functions]( is a visual workflow service capable of orchestrating over 11,000+ API actions from over 250 AWS services to automate business processes and data processing workloads. Now, AWS Step Functions supports more resilient deployments with Versions and Aliases for workflows, a new set of capabilities that makes it easier for you to set up continuous deployment, to help you iterate faster and release safely into production.
