Microservices development using AWS controllers for Kubernetes (ACK) and Amazon EKS blueprints

Introduction Microservices architectures make applications easier to scale and faster to develop, which enables innovation and accelerating time-to-market for new features. For business applications with multiple clients (web, mobile, desktop, and smart devices), the application programming interface (API) Gateway microservices design pattern is helpful for adding centralized control and security. Containers and serverless are two […]

Run event-driven workflows with Amazon EKS and AWS Step Functions

Introduction Event-driven computing is a common pattern in modern application development with microservices, which is a great fit for building resilient and scalable software in AWS. Event-driven computing needs to be push-based with event-driven applications that are run on-demand when an event triggers the functional workflow. Tools that help you minimize resource usage and reduce […]

Optimize your Spring Boot application for AWS Fargate

Fast startup times are key to quickly react to disruptions and demand peaks, and they can increase the resource efficiency. With AWS Fargate, you don’t need to take care of the underlying container hosts; however, some changes are often needed to shorten the time to bootstrap your container and the application. This post describes optimization […]

Architecting for resiliency on AWS App Runner

AWS App Runner is one of the simplest ways to run your containerized web applications and APIs on AWS. App Runner abstracts away the cloud resources needed for running your web application or API, including load balancers, TLS certificates, auto-scaling, logs, metrics, tracing (such as observability), as well as the underlying compute resources. With App Runner, […]
