Organizations hosting workloads on the cloud are more flexible and scalable, but this also comes with varying costs and the onus is on the organization to choose the appropriate service and cost. Cloud cost optimization should be an integral part of the transformation process and not just an operations task. Learn about Cognizant’s AWS economics service offering and how cost optimization techniques can be incorporated into AWS across the different stages of cloud transformation.
Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) is a fully managed, highly available, and secure Apache Kafka service that makes it easy to build and run applications that use Kafka to process steaming data. Learn how to use the new open source Kafka Connect Connector (StreamReactor) from Lenses.io to query, transform, optimize, and archive data from Amazon MSK to Amazon S3. We’ll also demonstrate how to use Amazon Athena to query the partitioned parquet data directly from S3.
In the financial services domain, it’s a common architecture pattern to find shared services file servers that act as SFTP file server or FTP server. Because these financial applications are not always API driven, data exchange using flat files remains the standard way to share information between applications, even when some of them have been migrated to AWS. Learn how DXC Technology addressed migrating this type of server using AWS Transfer Family, Amazon S3, and Amazon EFS.
As organizations continue to adopt AWS, their risk footprint increases from both an infrastructure and network perspective as it relates to compliance posturing, configuration risk, and network threats.
