For those that leverage Ubiquiti wifi products, switches, or other network equipment, there is a great product that can centrally manage all your devices via the Cloud Controller at AWS.  There is a pre-set EC2 instance you can deploy that will join all your devices to is for a small fee a month.  For roughly $15/month, you can have your own dedicated controller at AWS that works very well.  Before you would have to purchase a physical controller and have it on-premise at the particular location or download the software and install it on a server.  This is more streamlines and ensures uptime for configuration.
