Exposing Kubernetes Applications, Part 3: NGINX Ingress Controller

Introduction The Exposing Kubernetes Applications series focuses on ways to expose applications running in a Kubernetes cluster for external access. In Part 1, we explored Service and Ingress resource types that define two ways to control the inbound traffic in a Kubernetes cluster. We discussed handling of these resource types via Service and Ingress controllers, […]

Running Workload on Amazon EKS in Local Zones with resilient architecture

Running Workload on Amazon EKS in Local Zones with a failover strategy

Introduction Update 08/05/22: We updated the title and conclusion to improve the accuracy of wording. AWS Local Zones are a type of infrastructure deployment that places compute, storage, and other select AWS services close to large population and industry centers. Customers can build and deploy applications close to end users to enable real-time gaming, live […]

Using Amazon ECS with NVIDIA GPUs to accelerate drug discovery

Using Amazon ECS with NVIDIA GPUs to accelerate drug discovery

This post was written in collaboration with Neel Patel, Drug Discovery Scientist, Nvidia. Drug discovery is the process through which potential new medicines are identified. It involves a wide range of scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry, and pharmacology, as well as computer science. AstraZeneca and NVIDIA collaborated on developing MegaMolBART so the computational drug discovery process […]

Authenticating with Docker Hub for AWS Container Services

Docker Hub has recently updated its terms of service to introduce rate limits for container image pulls. While these limits don’t apply to accounts under a Pro or Team plan, anonymous users are limited to 100 pulls per 6 hours per IP address, and authenticated free accounts are limited to 200 pulls per 6 hours. […]

AWS CodeDeploy now supports linear and canary deployments for Amazon ECS

AWS CodeDeploy has extended blue/green deployment support for Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) to include canary and linear deployments for applications hosted on AWS Fargate or Amazon Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). Blue/green deployments are a safe deployment strategy provided by AWS CodeDeploy for minimizing interruptions caused by changing application versions. This is accomplished by creating […]

Securing EKS Ingress With Contour And Let’s Encrypt The GitOps Way

This is a guest post by Stefan Prodan of Weaveworks. In Kubernetes terminology, Ingress exposes HTTP(S) routes from outside the cluster to services running within the cluster. An Ingress can be configured to provide Kubernetes services with externally-reachable URLs while performing load balancing and SSL/TLS termination. Kubernetes comes with an Ingress resource and there are several controllers that […]
