Bring Your Mainframe Application Development into Your Enterprise AWS Code Pipelines
IBM Z and Cloud Modernization Stack on AWS provide a cloud-native experience to modernize development practices, helping developers adopt a unified set of tools and DevOps methodology. Learn how the Wazi components available in IBM Z and Cloud Modernization Stack provide modern experiences for analyzing, developing, and testing mainframe applications in an isolated way, implementing the DevOps philosophy for developers to gain speed and flexibility.
A Low-Code, No-Code Platform Approach from Virtusa for App Modernization and Engineering Optimization on AWS
One of the key objectives of any transformation program is to find a novel way to achieve results in the shortest possible time, with speed and accuracy. Virtusa has been doing lot of work in the automation-led transformation space and has collaborated with AWS to help realize business benefits for customers across globe. Explore Virtusa’s perspectives on the low-code/no-code approach and walk through a homegrown solution framework.
Build and Deploy a Secure Container Image with AWS and Snyk
Learn how to build a Java application in a Docker container and push the container image to Amazon ECR orchestrated by AWS CodePipeline. We’ll use Snyk to scan your code, build a container image, and display the results in both Snyk and Amazon ECR. We’ll also show you how Amazon Inspector utilizes Snyk open source to provide insight into your software security vulnerabilities. All of this functionality is available from the AWS Management Console.
Building a Multi-Region Solution for Auto Recovery of Amazon EC2 Instances Using AWS CDK and AWS Step Functions
Learn about a multi-regional first-line of support solution Chaos Gears put together using a serverless application running AWS Lambda under the baton of AWS Step Functions to relieve a customer’s engineers from some of their operational burdens. The approach described in this post can be adapted to serve other needs or cover different cases, as AWS Step Functions’ visual workflows allow for a quick translation of business requirements to technical ones.
How to Use Webhooks to Automate Red Hat OpenShift App Rebuilds from AWS CodeCommit
One of the offerings to help joint AWS and Red Hat customers build for an open hybrid cloud future is Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA), a fully managed OpenShift service, jointly supported by both Red Hat and AWS. In this post, we focus on a single but common use case often observed in the field where a joint enterprise customer has made investments in the AWS Cloud and is now considering expanding and adopting ROSA service as part of the AWS portfolio.
Deploying IBM Mainframe z/OS on AWS with IBM ZD&T
With an increased pace of innovation and demand for faster development and testing cycles, customers with mainframes want to adopt DevOps practices for their z/OS environments. To facilitate these practices, IBM offers the IBM Z Development and Test (ZD&T), a hardware emulation solution that allows regular z/OS software to run on the x86 platform by emulating the IBM Z instruction set, IO, and other devices. Learn how to create your own IBM ZD&T and z/OS environment on AWS.
Using AWS CodeBuild and Bridgecrew to Prevent Misconfigurations in AWS CloudFormation and Terraform
Scanning for misconfigurations as part of your CI/CD pipeline helps maintain a solid security posture for all changed resources before provisioning them to a running environment. Learn how to integrate infrastructure as code security and compliance scanning using AWS CodeBuild and Bridgecrew, a cloud security platform for developers. Bridgecrew is generally used to find security misconfigurations and policy violations across Amazon Web Services (AWS) and in configuration frameworks.
Provisioning a Virtual Private Cloud at Scale with AWS CDK
Infrastructure as code is one of the most important concepts used with cloud solutions, and AWS CloudFormation enables IaC by deploying stacks and provisioning resources on AWS using JSON or YAML files called templates. APN Ambassador Francois Rouxel from Slalom will show you how to create a hundred VPCs in one AWS region without providing any parameters, and how to easily establish a peering connection between two of them within a single line of code.
Deploying DevSecOps on Amazon EKS with Aqua Security – Part 2
Aqua Security was built to redefine security and help you address the security skills gap in a rapidly evolving cloud-native landscape, automating security controls at the speed of DevOps. Unlike traditional security, cloud-native security cannot adopt a one-size-fits-all approach. It has to be seamlessly integrated with the existing processes, organizational culture as well as the technology. Learn how to implement a DevSecOps pipeline using AWS CodePipeline and Aqua Platform.
Monitoring Microservice-Based Cloud Applications Using Distributed Tracing
As application complexity increases, the debugging process in production environments gets more complicated as well. AWS understands this challenge and includes tracing tools in its cloud services. For instance, AWS X-Ray helps developers analyze and debug distributed applications, such as those built using a microservices architecture. Epsagon specializes in automated tracing for cloud microservices, providing automated end-to-end tracing across not distributed AWS services.
