A key goal of modern data strategy, whether a data mesh, data fabric, data lake, or data warehouse, is to deliver access to data when and where it’s needed. Learn how AWS and Informatica can combine and automate data governance for access within a data marketplace. This solution combines Information’s data governance architecture and the Informatica Intelligent Data Management Cloud (IDMC) which orchestrates and automates data access management with AWS Lake Formation.
Instant Cutover for High-Availability Legacy Workload Migration Using AWS Outposts, CloudEndure, and Stromasys
Numerous legacy workloads, still hosted on premises, are mission-critical and hardly interruptible. Their migration to AWS must happen quasi-transparently for their users. This post details how the combination of AWS Outposts and CloudEndure can be used to solve for this issue. We demonstrate this by migrating a Solaris machine making use of the Charon SSP emulator by Stromasys, running on standard Amazon EC2 instances and using CloudEndure.
Customers running virtual machines on VMware Cloud on AWS have unique storage requirements and require a solution that provides a scalable, high performance, and feature-rich file storage. Learn how you can use Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP as one of your options for providing storage to virtual machines running on VMware Cloud on AWS. We’ll then discuss different connectivity options available for VMs to access these storage volumes.
Learn how to support a multi-region, business-critical legacy monolithic application with customer-owned static public IPv4 addresses running on VMware Cloud on AWS. You can do this whilst using the AWS Cloud to deliver the Bring Your Own Public IPv4 Address (BYOIP) function with Amazon VPC, Network Load Balancer, Elastic IP address, Amazon Route 53, and VMware Transit Connect. VMware Cloud on AWS is an integrated hybrid cloud offering jointly developed by AWS and VMware.
As serverless architectures start to grow, finding the right troubleshooting approach becomes a business-critical aspect. In this post, dive into the “instrumentation approach” and how to keep track of internal events within an AWS Lambda function, and how to export processed telemetry data. Lumigo shares a practical guide on how to use AWS Lambda Extensions and follow a storyline of extracting internal events from Lambda functions, processing them, and sending telemetry data to external services.
Open Finance initiatives have been gaining momentum across the world. These initiatives require that banks provide access to customer data through a common, open API for third-party applications, which are referred to as fintech apps. Learn how to build and deploy a basic fintech app on AWS in under an hour by using the Plaid Link API. This app allows users to sign up, log in, select their bank from a list, connect to that bank, and display the latest transactions.
AWS CloudHSM enables you to generate and use your own encryption keys on AWS. The standard service for managing keys for signing would usually be AWS KMS, but due to legacy requirements from the customer side the team at BJSS needed to support both SHA256 and SHA1. Learn how BJSS successfully signed some data with a key from AWS CloudHSM using Python, and walk through the setup of an AWS CloudHSM cluster for testing using a sample application.
AWS customers running on-premises workloads that leverage Amazon S3 previously needed to set up proxies running on Amazon EC2 to access S3 gateway endpoints. With AWS PrivateLink for Amazon S3, you can provision interface VPC endpoints (interface endpoints) in your virtual private cloud. These endpoints are directly accessible from applications that are on-premises over VPN and AWS Direct Connect, or in a different AWS region over VPC peering.
As businesses continue to build faster and more scalable systems, the need to increase reliability is constantly on the forefront of your stakeholders’ minds. This post covers how Triumph Technology Solutions, an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner and dedicated provider of AWS-centered cloud services, got the most out of DevOps Guru by integrating it with PagerDuty, an incident management platform that provides alerts, automatic escalations, and on-call scheduling for your team.
AWS Single Sign-On (AWS SSO) is where you create or connect your workforce identities in AWS once and manage access centrally across your AWS Organization. Learn about the new integration with CyberArk Workforce Identity to provide simplified access management and provisioning to AWS. With this integration, you can have a single point of truth for all enterprise identities and enforce consistent management of users, groups, permissions, and access policies while reducing redundancies and errors.
