Understanding asynchronous messaging for microservices

This post is courtesy of Dirk Fröhner, Sr. Solutions Architect One of the implications of applying the microservices architectural style is that much communication between components happens over the network. After all, your microservices landscape is a distributed system. To achieve the promises of microservices, such as being able to individually scale, operate, and evolve each service, this […]

SQS FIFO example #2

New for AWS Lambda – SQS FIFO as an event source

AWS Lambda first announced support for Amazon SQS standard queues as an event source in April 2018. This allows builders to develop serverless applications using queues to directly invoke Lambda functions. Today, we have expanded this feature to include SQS FIFO queues. This makes it easier to create serverless applications using queues where the order […]

Creating static custom domain endpoints with Amazon MQ to simplify broker modification and scaling

This post is courtesy of Wallace Printz, Senior Solutions Architect, AWS, and Christian Mueller, Senior Solutions Architect, AWS. Many cloud-native application architectures take advantage of the point-to-point and publish-subscribe (“pub-sub”) model of message-based communication between application components. This architecture is generally more resilient to failure because of the loose coupling and because message processing failures can be […]
