Configuration: We use environment variables for anything small-ish. For more complicated configurations, similar to omarforgotpwd, we keep the values (files AND environment variables) in S3 and download them at deploy time. For stage/prod differences we can literally diff the different S3 buckets.

Management: We create AMIs using Packer. Packer runs a provisioning tool which downloads tho container and the configuration and sets up the process monitoring. It then builds a machine image, and then we launch new servers.
