As customers look to innovate with the cloud, AWS is focused on helping organizations grow by enabling them to securely run a wide range of applications with price performance benefits. AMD-powered instances are integral to these offerings, and with AMD’s announcement of fourth-generation AMD EPYC processors AWS plans to offer Amazon EC2 instances powered by the newly-introduced processors. These instances will expand customer choice of compute options available on EC2.
Migrating Elasticsearch on Amazon EC2 to Modernized, Multi-Tenant Amazon OpenSearch Service Architecture
For a recent project, NTT DATA Services was asked to architect and design the migration of a customer’s backend search tool used by two of its applications. Both applications were leveraging Elasticsearch for data storage. Learn how NTT DATA used some of the DevOps pillars to implement migrations using an active migration strategy. The goal was to move from individual Elasticsearch instances on Amazon EC2 to a single multi-tenant hosted Elasticsearch solution per region—in this case, Amazon OpenSearch Service.
Lack of a modernization strategy can result in unwanted downtime, excess investment, poor quality service, and dead-weight assets into the modernized platform. This post talks about how InfoWise, a Tech Mahindra solution, accelerates the first two stages of the cloud data migration and modernization journey: search and discover and plan and strategy. InfoWise also helps recommend the migration priority by running various dependency intelligence across all the metadata objects.
As part of its SaaS platform, Druva runs containerized applications with microservices architecture using Auto Scaling groups and Amazon Amazon ECS. Explore the cost optimization journey of Druva using Spot instances with Auto Scaling groups, challenges faced by them during this journey, and how attribute-based instance type selection (ABS) came to the rescue in addressing those challenges in optimizing costs.
