Networking is often viewed as a foundational element of a system’s architecture. The reality is there are plenty of scenarios where the networking footprint of a SaaS application can influence the functionality, extensibility, and management profile of your SaaS environment. While there are plenty of creative ways developers leverage AWS networking constructs to refine SaaS solutions, the introduction of AWS PrivateLink adds new opportunities in the SaaS networking landscape.
With VMware Cloud on AWS, you can deploy applications in a fully-managed VMware environment. Organizations can simplify their hybrid IT operations by using the same VMware technologies—including vSphere, vSAN, NSX, and vCenter—across their on-premises datacenters and on the AWS cloud. In this post, and my follow-up, we explore the major components of Amazon VPC for engineers and architects who build and operate VMware NSX networks, and who are building solutions on VMware Cloud on AWS.

While modernizing customer mainframes, the team at AWS Blu Age discovered that Batch can be a complex aspect of a mainframe migration to AWS. It’s critical to design your AWS architecture to account for the key Batch stringent performance requirements such as intensive I/Os, large datasets, and short durations. Let’s explore how to migrate mainframe Batch to AWS microservices using AWS Blu Age automated transformation technology.
AWS Partner Cinegy has long been an advocate of IP-based video workflows and understands that maintaining visual quality whilst reducing bandwidth consumption is an ongoing challenge with the increasing data requirements of formats such as Ultra High Definition (UHD). In this post, Cinegy demonstrates how to deploy a fully-functional playout engine using Amazon EC2 resources and the Cinegy Amazon Machine Image (AMI) to deliver a UHD TV channel with graphics.
This is the third post in our series documenting a project to fix issues with the AWS GameDay architecture by using tenets of the AWS Well-Architected Framework. In Part 2, we remediated the critical findings found in our initial review and here we’ll cover remediating the deficiencies found in our Disaster Recovery plan, as well as other optimizations we’ve made due to recent announcements. We will also discuss how to address another crucial component in our application development—testing.
Blockchain-based applications introduce new possibilities for both peer-to-peer and enterprise optimization solutions. AWS is investing in blockchain through our partner community, and BlockApps is a leading provider of Ethereum blockchain development solutions. Their private implementation, written in Haskell, provides a highly scalable Ethereum-compliant blockchain with an industry standard RESTful API and an easy-to-use web-based management dashboard.
A challenge many industrial and manufacturing corporations face when adopting IoT is the complexity of designing and developing for embedded devices. This is even more pronounced for corporations that have little knowledge of firmware development for embedded devices. Zerynth, an APN Select Technology Partner, provides a software development suite that enables Python programming on 32-bit microcontrollers and allows easy connectivity to AWS IoT service.
