Scale applications using multi-Region Amazon EKS and Amazon Aurora Global Database: Part 2

This is the second in a two-part series about scaling applications globally using multi-Region Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) and Amazon Aurora Global Database. In Part 1, you learned the architecture patterns and foundational pillars of a multi-Region application design. In this post, we use the read local and write global design pattern to scale, […]

Implement active-active replication with RDS Custom for Oracle: Part 2 – High Availability & Disaster Recovery

In this post, we advance the architecture that was discussed in Implement active-active replication with RDS Custom for Oracle: Part 1 – High Availability, where we implemented an Amazon RDS Custom for Oracle solution with multi-master and high availability. This post will show you how to add high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) using Oracle […]

Troubleshoot network connectivity to Amazon RDS databases using VPC Reachability Analyzer

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) enables you to provision a logically isolated section of theAWS Cloud where AWS resources such as Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) DB instances can be launched in a virtual network you define. When creating an Amazon RDS DB instance, you have the option to create a new VPC […]

Build NFT metadata access control with Ethereum signatures and AWS Lambda authorizers

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have captured global attention as a mechanism for creating one-of-a-kind digital assets that can be instantly verified as authentic, easily exchanged between users, and made infinitely programmable such that NFTs can be used for a variety of use cases and industries. At its core, NFTs are a form of digital asset or […]

Connect an on-premises application server to Amazon RDS on Outposts

AWS Outposts rack brings native AWS services to virtually any customer data center or on-premises facility. Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, services, APIs, and tools to customer premises. In this post, we detail the connectivity required to connect on-premises applications to Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) on Outposts. For […]

Access Amazon MemoryDB for Redis from AWS Lambda

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the launch of Amazon MemoryDB for Redis. On 8/19/2021, AWS announced the general availability of Amazon MemoryDB for Redis, a fully managed, Redis-compatible database, that delivers both in-memory performance and Multi-AZ durability. Over the past year, thousands of customers have adopted MemoryDB as their primary database for critical workloads […]

Replace self-managed database scheduler batch jobs using AWS native solutions

Database administrators and developers traditionally schedule scripts to run against databases using the system cron on the host where the database is running or using database schedulers, resulting in a tight coupling with the batch scripts and the database. Many Oracle database applications use files stored in a shared file system volume that is mounted […]

Understand and build a hybrid database with Amazon RDS and AWS Outposts

Many customers are faced with the challenge of building and operating a hybrid infrastructure to support workloads that must run both in the cloud and on premises. In many cases, these hybrid workloads rely on a relational database to support the workload, which can be particularly challenging to build and support across a hybrid infrastructure. […]

Deploy a high-performance database for containerized applications: Amazon MemoryDB for Redis with Kubernetes

More and more organizations are building their applications using microservices for operational efficiency, agility, scalability, and faster time to market. Microservices and containers have emerged as building blocks for modern applications, and Kubernetes has become the de facto standard for managing containers at scale. Applications running on Kubernetes need a database that provides ultra-fast performance, high availability […]

Deploy a containerized application with Amazon ECS and connect to Amazon DocumentDB (with MongoDB compatibility) securely

Deploying containerized applications with cloud database services can involve many manual steps, such as configuring networks and securing database connections from the applications. To simplify development and deployment, you can use infrastructure as code (IaC) to build, configure, deploy, and scale containerized applications automatically. In this post, I show you how to use IaC concepts […]
