Monitoring is fundamental to operating an application in production, since we can only operate what we can measure and alert on. As an application evolves, or the environment grows more complex, it becomes increasingly challenging to maintain monitoring thresholds for each component, and to validate that they’re still set to an effective value. We not […]
Organizations implement compliance rules for cloud infrastructure to ensure that they run the applications according to their best practices. They utilize AWS Config to determine overall compliance against the configurations specified in their internal guidelines. This is determined after the creation of cloud resources in their AWS account. This post will demonstrate how to use […]
This blog post will demonstrate how to leverage Jenkins with Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) by running a Jenkins Manager within an EKS pod. In doing so, we can run Jenkins workloads by allowing Amazon EKS to spawn dynamic Jenkins Agent(s) in order to perform application and infrastructure deployment. Traditionally, customers will setup a Jenkins Manager-Agent […]

Microservices commonly communicate with JSON over HTTP/1.1. These technologies are ubiquitous and human-readable, but they aren’t optimized for communication between dozens or hundreds of microservices. Next-generation Web technologies, including gRPC and HTTP/2, significantly improve communication speed and efficiency between microservices. AWS offers the most complete platform for builders implementing microservices — and the addition of HTTP/2 and gRPC support in Application Load Balancer (ALB) provides an end-to-end solution for next-generation microservices. ALBs can inspect and route gRPC calls, enabling features like health checks, access logs, and gRPC-specific metrics. This post demonstrates .NET microservices communicating with gRPC via Application Load Balancers.
To help customers using Terraform for multi-cloud infrastructure deployment, we have introduced a new feature in the AWS Config Rule Development Kit (RDK) that allows you to export custom AWS Config rules to Terraform files so that you can deploy the RDK rules with Terraform. This blog post is a complement to the previous post […]
You can, and should, strive for Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) and CI/CD in every project, including your Alexa Skills! Come learn how to use the AWS CDK to define your Alexa Skills as code and deploy them with a single CLI command or as part of a CI/CD workflow.
Learn how to scan Python packages for security vulnerabilities using AWS Developer tools and Snyk
This post shows you how to configure CodeGuru Profiler to collect multiple applications’ profiling data into a central account and review the applications’ performance data on one dashboard.
Enforcing AWS CloudFormation scanning in CI/CD Pipelines at scale using Trend Micro Cloud One Conformity
Integrating AWS CloudFormation template scanning into CI/CD pipelines is a great way to catch security infringements before application deployment. However, implementing and enforcing this in a multi team, multi account environment can present some challenges, especially when the scanning tools used require external API access. This blog will discuss those challenges and offer a solution […]
