Use Amazon Web Services Cloud Control API to create, read, update, delete, and list (CRUD-L) your cloud resources that belong to a wide range of services--both Amazon Web Services and third-party. With the Cloud Control API standardized set of application programming interfaces (APIs), you can perform CRUD-L operations on any supported resources in your Amazon Web Services account. Using Cloud Control API, you won't have to generate code or scripts specific to each individual service responsible for those resources.
