What to Consider when Selecting a Region for your Workloads

The AWS Cloud is an ever-growing network of Regions and points of presence (PoP), with a global network infrastructure that connects them together. With such a vast selection of Regions, costs, and services available, it can be challenging for startups to select the optimal Region for a workload. This decision must be made carefully, as […]

Using VPC Endpoints in Multi-Region Architectures with Route 53 Resolver

Many customers are building multi-Region architectures on AWS. They might want to bring their systems closer to their end users, support disaster recovery (DR), or comply with data sovereignty requirements. Often, these architectures use Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to host resources like Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) databases, and AWS Lambda […]

DR implementation architecture on multi-Region active-passive workloads

Implementing Multi-Region Disaster Recovery Using Event-Driven Architecture

In this blog post, we share a reference architecture that uses a multi-Region active/passive strategy to implement a hot standby strategy for disaster recovery (DR). We highlight the benefits of performing DR failover using event-driven, serverless architecture, which provides high reliability, one of the pillars of AWS Well Architected Framework. With the multi-Region active/passive strategy, your workloads […]

Disaster Recovery (DR) Architecture on AWS, Part IV: Multi-site Active/Active

In my first blog post of this series, I introduced you to four strategies for disaster recovery (DR). My subsequent posts shared details on the backup and restore, pilot light, and warm standby active/passive strategies. In this post, you’ll learn how to implement an active/active strategy to run your workload and serve requests in two […]

Managed File Transfer using AWS Transfer Family and Amazon S3

Financial, healthcare, retail and other companies exchange many different types of data. This can include stock information, healthcare claims, and sharing product data files with their partners. These companies need a managed file transfer solution that supports data transformation, and exchange of data over File Transfer Protocol over SSL (FTPS), and Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP). […]

Disaster Recovery (DR) Architecture on AWS, Part III: Pilot Light and Warm Standby

In this blog post, you will learn about two more active/passive strategies that enable your workload to recover from disaster events such as natural disasters, technical failures, or human actions. Previously, I introduced you to four strategies for disaster recovery (DR) on AWS. Then we explored the backup and restore strategy. Now let’s learn about […]

CloudFront events that can trigger Lambda@Edge functions

Dynamic Request Routing in Multi-tenant Systems with Amazon CloudFront

In this blog post, we will share how OutSystems designed a globally distributed serverless request routing service for their multi-tenant architecture. This will provide you ways to benefit from a managed solution that’s scalable and requires a low operational effort. Namely, we explain how to select the origin serving an HTTP/S request using Lambda@Edge, including […]

Figure 1. RStudio/Shiny Open Source Deployment on AWS Serverless Infrastructure

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 […]

Using Route 53 Private Hosted Zones for Cross-account Multi-region Architectures

This post was co-written by Anandprasanna Gaitonde, AWS Solutions Architect and John Bickle, Senior Technical Account Manager, AWS Enterprise Support Introduction Many AWS customers have internal business applications spread over multiple AWS accounts and on-premises to support different business units. In such environments, you may find a consistent view of DNS records and domain names […]

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 […]
