Accelerate Data Warehousing by Streaming Data with Confluent Cloud into Amazon Redshift
Built as a cloud-native service, Confluent Cloud offers developers a serverless experience with elastic scaling and pricing that charges only for what they stream. Confluent’s Kafka Connect Amazon Redshift Sink Connector exports Avro, JSON Schema, or Protobuf data from Apache Kafka topics to Amazon Redshift. The connector polls data from Kafka and writes this data to an Amazon Redshift database. Polling data is based on subscribed topics.
Isolating SaaS Tenants with Dynamically Generated IAM Policies
Many SaaS organizations leverage AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) to define a series of policies and roles that can be used to ensure tenants are not allowed to cross tenant boundaries when accessing resources. To make this work, you have to create separate policies for each tenant which can create an explosion of tenant policies that push the account limits of IAM. Learn how dynamic policy generation creates a more scalable and manageable isolation experience.
Deploying DevSecOps on Amazon EKS with Aqua Security – Part 2
