Field Notes: Deploy and Visualize ROS Bag Data on AWS using rviz and Webviz for Autonomous Driving

In the automotive industry, ROS bag files are frequently used to capture drive data from test vehicles configured with cameras, LIDAR, GPS, and other input devices. The data for each device is stored as a topic in the ROS bag file. Developers and engineers need to visualize and inspect the contents of ROS bag files to identify […]

How Financial Institutions can use AWS to Address Regulatory Reporting

Since the 2008 financial crisis, banking supervisory institutions such as the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) have strengthened regulations. There is now increased oversight over the financial services industry. For banks, making the necessary changes to comply with these rules is a challenging, multi-year effort. Basel IV, a massive update to existing rules, is […]

Field Notes: Accelerating Data Science with RStudio and Shiny Server on AWS Fargate

Data scientists continuously look for ways to accelerate time to value for analytics projects.  RStudio Server is a popular Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for R, which is used to render analytics visualizations for faster decision making. These visualizations are traditionally hosted on legacy unix servers along with Shiny Server to support analytics. In this previous […]

Rate Limiting Strategies for Serverless Applications

Serverless technologies reduce the work needed to set up and maintain computing resources, provide built-in scalability, and optimize agility, performance, cost, and security. The pay-as-you-go model is particularly liberating for developers. You can fail fast, experiment more, and do it fairly cheaply. However, serverless brings its own challenges. In this blog, we’ll examine how to […]

Designing a Successful Pilot Phase for Your Cloud Migration

Pilot phases, or pilots, as we will call them from now on, should be conducted to test and find the positive and negative aspects of a particular use case, design pattern, or application migration approach. They allow you to validate the foundation of your architecture (for example, with a landing zone governed by AWS Control […]

Ensure Optimal Application Performance with Distributed Load Testing on AWS

As a modern enterprise, your customers expect 100% availability of your critical web and mobile applications. Unforeseen events such as COVID-19, have necessitated many customer engagements to become virtual. This has made web and mobile applications even more critical. Distributed Load Testing on AWS (DLT) helps you automate the performance testing of your software applications […]

Scaling RStudio/Shiny using Serverless Architecture and AWS Fargate

Data scientists use RStudio server as an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to develop, publish, and share interactive web dashboards built on Shiny Server. Although it is possible to use virtual server infrastructure in the cloud to run R workloads, containerization offers significant operational benefits. Migrating R workloads into a serverless model in AWS, customers can […]

Field Notes: Optimize your Java application for Amazon ECS with Quarkus

In this blog post, I show you an interesting approach to implement a Java-based application and compile it to a native image using Quarkus. This native image is the main application, which is containerized, and runs in an Amazon Elastic Container Service and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service cluster on AWS Fargate. Amazon ECS is a […]

The Satellite Ear Tag that is Changing Cattle Management

Most cattle are not raised in cities—they live on cattle stations, large open plains, and tracts of land largely unpopulated by humans. It’s hard to keep connected with the herd. Cattle don’t often carry their own mobile phones, and they don’t pay a mobile phone bill. Naturally, the areas in which cattle live, often do […]
