The F5 BIG-IP Virtual Edition (VE) load balancer deployment adds new Layer 4 application capabilities and added visibility to those applications inside an Amazon EKS cluster to ensure a successful deployment in a containerized environment. This post presents a step-by-step guide for using the F5 BIG-IP VE on AWS as a load balancer for EKS clusters by using additional components, including the F5 Container Ingress Service (CIS) and F5 IPAM Controller (FIC).
Cisco Secure Firewall Cloud Native (SFCN) is a lightweight network firewall in a cloud-native form factor. Offering granular control and massive throughput potential, SFCN enables security at the speed of business. It offers an easy way to deploy scalable remote access VPN architecture as its primary use case. The solution utilizes Amazon Amazon EKS and other cloud-native services including Amazon ElastiCache for Redis and Amazon Amazon EFS.
For complex and large legacy monoliths, enterprises can quickly run into a wall with rehosting alone. The more lines of code, classes, and interdependencies, the less value you get from lifting and shifting. Learn how AWS Migration Hub Refactor Spaces and vFunction help in the analysis of monolith applications, set priorities to extract the microservices, deploy the microservices in cloud-native AWS services, and route the user traffic with minimal effort.
Building with Cells: High Availability and Disaster Recovery Strategies for ADP’s Globally Distributed Enterprise Platforms
Lifion by ADP is an AWS-qualified software offering that builds human capital management (HCM) software to help large, international enterprises manage their workforce. This post explores Lifion’s Kubernetes availability strategy, the datastore design principles used to provide high reliability, and their approach to cell-based reliability engineering (CBRE), which provides mechanisms to compose and re-compose ADP systems against interruptions.
Understanding the performance of your Amazon EKS clusters and applications is critical, but without the proper tools identifying problems can be difficult. You need the ability to detect, analyze, and resolve them as fast as possible. New Relic’s EKS Blueprints add-on for the Amazon EKS Blueprints framework is built on the AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK) and simplifies deploying Kubernetes observability components from New Relic to your EKS clusters, using programming concepts you’re already familiar with.
Data is the most important resource available to modern institutions. The challenge is not necessarily generating, cataloging, or storing data, but operationalizing it. Palantir Foundry is an operations platform that leverages existing data systems and analytics tooling to power smarter decision-making. Learn how Palantir HyperAuto can rapidly integrate data from ERP systems and operationalize that existing data against pressing business problems.
Enterprises are embracing the Kubernetes orchestration platform for their DevOps and CI/CD processes. Amazon EKS makes this transition easy by managing the still relatively new Kubernetes ecosystem and ensuring IT admins can focus on the next area of innovation for their organizations. With the ability to deploy the Juniper cSRX Container Firewall in an Amazon EKS environment, customers can leverage the benefits of the container for protecting their workloads.
Most banks are still running legacy core systems developed over 30 years ago for mainframe computing. These software applications pre-dated the internet and were monolithic by design. Finxact is an AWS Partner that was begun five years ago by a team of engineers with deep experience in the design of core banking systems. Its mission was to couple this domain expertise with the most modern cloud-based technologies and programming languages to produce a core platform for the modern era of banking.
Kublr is a Kubernetes management platform which accelerates and controls the deployment, scaling, monitoring, and management of Kubernetes clusters. Learn how provisioning and managing Kubernetes clusters across multiple regions can be simplified with Kublr, ensuring quick deployment of a production-ready, operationally mature, multi-region, cloud-native container management platform-based Kubernetes.
Kubernetes is hardware-agnostic and can work across a wide range of infrastructure platforms, and Kubeflow—the self-described machine learning toolkit for Kubernetes—provides a Kubernetes-native platform for developing and deploying ML systems. Learn how D2iQ Kaptain on AWS directly addresses the challenges of moving ML workloads into production, the steep learning curve for Kubernetes, and the particular difficulties Kubeflow can introduce.
