Serverless Containers are the Future of Container Infrastructure
With the shift to containers and serverless solutions, organizations are presented with a unique question: how do you maximize an application’s uptime while maintaining a cost-effective infrastructure at both layers?

As a result, several challenges have arisen on the path to building an optimized, cost-effective, and highly available containerized infrastructure on AWS: pricing, instance sizing, and containers utilization.
How to Use Amazon Rekognition on Cloudinary to Auto-Tag Faces with Names
Learn how to seamlessly integrate Amazon Rekognition with the Cloudinary platform, and build an application that automatically tags people in images with names. This solution learns people’s faces from photos uploaded to a “training” folder in Cloudinary. In many cases, a single photo of someone is enough for Amazon Rekognition to learn and then, later on, identify and tag that person. This works in most photograph scenes and even pictures with many other people in them.

How to Automate Cloud Governance to Achieve Safety at Speed
Compliance-as-code is an alternative to performing a manual audit. It’s an automated method to check that controls are being followed where rules are written in a programming language that can be run on an event. The source of this event could be from a recurring schedule, or from a change that has happened in the environment. Mechanical Rock uses AWS Service Catalog to distribute common infrastructure patterns that enable development teams to quickly build and deploy modern cloud native applications.
