Multi-Region backup

Disaster recovery with AWS managed services, Part 2: Multi-Region/backup and restore

In part I of this series, we introduced a disaster recovery (DR) concept that uses managed services through a single AWS Region strategy. In part two, we introduce a multi-Region backup and restore approach. With this approach, you can deploy a DR solution in multiple Regions, but it will be associated with longer RPO/RTO. Using […]

Automating Anomaly Detection in Ecommerce Traffic Patterns

Many organizations with large ecommerce presences have procedures to detect major anomalies in their user traffic. Often, these processes use static alerts or manual monitoring. However, the ability to detect minor anomalies in traffic patterns near real-time can be challenging. Early detection of these minor anomalies in ecommerce traffic (such as website page visits and […]

Modernized Database Queuing using Amazon SQS and AWS Services

A queuing system is composed of producers and consumers. A producer enqueues messages (writes messages to a database) and a consumer dequeues messages (reads messages from the database). Business applications requiring asynchronous communications often use the relational database management system (RDBMS) as the default message storage mechanism. But the increased message volume, complexity, and size, […]

Migrating a Database Workflow to Modernized AWS Workflow Services

The relational database is a critical resource in application architecture. Enterprise organizations often use relational database management systems (RDBMS) to provide embedded workflow state management. But this can present problems, such as inefficient use of data storage and compute resources, performance issues, and decreased agility. Add to this the responsibility of managing workflow states through […]

Designing a High-volume Streaming Data Ingestion Platform Natively on AWS

The total global data storage is projected to exceed 200 zettabytes by 2025. This exponential growth of data demands increased vigilance against cybercrimes. Emerging cybersecurity trends include increasing service attacks, ransomware, and critical infrastructure threats. Businesses are changing how they approach cybersecurity and are looking for new ways to tackle these threats. In the past, […]

Figure 7. Fan out design pattern including secondary pipeline for deleting images

Get Started with Amazon S3 Event Driven Design Patterns

Event driven programs use events to initiate succeeding steps in a process. For example, the completion of an upload job may then initiate an image processing job. This allows developers to create complex architectures by using the principle of decoupling. Decoupling is preferable for many workflows, as it allows each component to perform its tasks […]
