Let’s Architect! Designing event-driven architectures

During the design of distributed systems, we have to identify a communication strategy to exchange information between different services while keeping the evolutionary nature of the architecture in mind. Event-driven architectures are based on events (facts that happened in a system), which are asynchronously exchanged to implement communication across different services while having a high […]

An elastic deployment of Stable Diffusion with Discord on AWS

Stable Diffusion is a state-of-the-art text-to-image model that generates images from text. Deploying text-to-image models such as Stable Diffusion can be difficult. Currently, Stable Diffusion requires specific computer hardware known as graphical processing units (GPUs). You can lower the bar to entry by offloading the text-to-image generation onto Amazon Web Services (AWS). Discord is a […]

Marketing CDP reference on AWS

A modern approach to implementing the serverless Customer Data Platform

When building a Customer Data Platform (CDP), advertising and marketing Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) face a unique set of challenges. The ISV can help organizations with the heavy lifting required to build, secure, and maintain near real-time, high volume CDPs. However, architecting CDPs using traditional on-premises technologies can introduce multiple complexities and can limit deployment […]

An overview and architecture of building a Customer Data Platform on AWS

The deprecation of digital consumer identifiers, such as third-party cookies and mobile advertising IDs, and the rapid growth of data from expanding consumer touchpoints, has created challenges in identifying, managing, and reaching customers in digital channels. Organizations must rethink their strategies for collecting and storing customer data. Customer Data Platforms (CDPs) collect, aggregate, and organize […]

Architecture: Recursive Scaling using Amazon SQS and Amazon ECS Fargate cluster

Design Pattern for Highly Parallel Compute: Recursive Scaling with Amazon SQS

Scaling based on Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) is a commonly used design pattern. At AWS Professional Services, we have recently used a variant of this pattern to achieve highly parallel computation for larger customers. In fact, any use case with a tree-like set of entities can use this pattern. It’s useful in a workflow […]

Expose AWS Lambda Function Behind Static IP When a DNS Cannot be Managed

Up until recently, the best practice to expose an AWS Lambda function has been to use Amazon API Gateway. This solution protects your functions from direct client traffic. This is explained in the API Gateway tutorial, where Amazon API Gateway acts as a proxy in front of the Lambda function. This practice is useful when […]

Semiconductor design and manufacturing continues to drive technology. Meeting the design requirements of low power connected devices, which utilize high performant, compact designs can be challenging. AWS provides the infrastructure and services to run the entire semiconductor design workflow. In this issue, our expert Mark Duffield shares innovation, architectural patterns and considerations for Semiconductor Design. […]

Notional architecture for Serverless Bot Framework & Salesforce Integration

Build Chatbots using Serverless Bot Framework with Salesforce Integration

Conversational interfaces have become increasingly popular, both on web and mobile. Businesses realize these interactions are resulting in quicker resolutions of customer concerns than a more traditional approach of agent interactions. An intelligent chatbot on top of customer-facing platforms comes with inherent benefits. Among these are 24/7 customer support with no agent wait-times, improved operational […]
