Managing sessions of anonymous users in WebSocket API-based applications
In this post, you learn how to keep track of user sessions when using WebSockets API and not lose the session context when the user reconnects again. Apply learnings from this example to improve your user experience when using WebSocket APIs for web-frontend and mobile applications, where internet connections may be unstable.
Introducing AWS Lambda Powertools for .NET
CloudWatch and AWS X-Ray offer functionality that provides comprehensive observability for your applications. Lambda Powertools .NET is now generally available. The library helps implement observability when running Lambda functions based on .NET 6 while reducing the amount of custom code.
Implementing reactive progress tracking for AWS Step Functions
This blog post is written by Alexey Paramonov, Solutions Architect, ISV and Maximilian Schellhorn, Solutions Architect ISV This blog post demonstrates a solution based on AWS Step Functions and Amazon API Gateway WebSockets to track execution progress of a long running workflow. The solution updates the frontend regularly and users are able to track the […]
Architecture patterns for consuming private APIs cross-account
This blog written by Thomas Moore, Senior Solutions Architect and Josh Hart, Senior Solutions Architect. Amazon API Gateway allows developers to create private REST APIs that are only accessible from a virtual private cloud (VPC). Traffic to the private API uses secure connections and does not leave the AWS network, meaning AWS isolates it from […]
Deploying Local Gateway Ingress Routing on AWS Outposts
This post is written by Leonardo Solano, Senior Hybrid Cloud Solution Architect and Chris Lunsford, Senior Specialist Solutions Architect, AWS Outposts. AWS Outposts lets customers use the same Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) security mechanisms, such as security groups and network access control lists, to control traffic flows for on-premises applications running on Outposts. Some […]
Building resilient private APIs using Amazon API Gateway
This post written by Giedrius Praspaliauskas, Senior Solutions Architect, Serverless. Modern architectures meet recovery objectives (recovery time objective, RTO, and recovery point objective, RPO) by being resilient to routine and unexpected infrastructure disruptions. Depending on the recovery objectives and regulatory requirements, developers must choose the disaster recovery strategy. For more on disaster recovery strategies, see […]
Running cross-account workflows with AWS Step Functions and Amazon API Gateway
This blog post provides a step-by-step guide on securely invoking a cross-account Step Functions workflow from a central account using API Gateway as front end. This pattern can be extended to scale workflow executions across different Regions and accounts.
Implementing mutual TLS for Java-based AWS Lambda functions
This post is written by Dhiraj Mahapatro, Senior Specialist SA, Serverless and Christian Mueller, Principal Solutions Architect Modern secure applications establish network connections to other services through HTTPS. This ensures that the application connects to the right party and encrypts the data before sending it over the network. You might not want unauthenticated users to […]
Building serverless multi-Region WebSocket APIs
This blog post shows how to use the AWS serverless platform to build a multi-regional chat application over WebSockets. With the cross-Region event routing of EventBridge the architecture is resilient as well as extensible.
Migrating a monolithic .NET REST API to AWS Lambda
This blog post shows the required considerations for migrating a .NET Core REST API to AWS Lambda. You can now start to look at your existing code base and make an informed decision whether Lambda is for you. With the right abstractions and configuration, you can migrate a .NET Core API to Lambda compute with copy and paste.
