Take a Well-Architected approach to make an informed decision when choosing to implement CI/CD using open-source tools on AWS services, using managed AWS services, or a combination of both.
We will look at key considerations for evaluating open-source software and AWS Services using the perspectives of a startup company, and a mature company, as examples. These will give you two very different points of view that you can use to compare to your own organization. To make this investigation easier we will use Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) capabilities as the target of our investigation.
In our next two blog posts we will follow two AWS customers Iponweb and BigHat Biosciences as they share their CI/CD journeys, their perspective, the decisions they made, and why.
To end the series, we will explore an example reference architecture showing the benefits AWS provides regardless of your emphasis on open source tools or managed AWS services.Read More
Understand how to automate trigger of project specific code pipeline for GitHub mono repos users. Currently, if a customer is using GitHub as a version control system and he has only one repository which contains multiple folders each for a different project, change in any file, triggers the code pipeline for the whole repository rather than for the appropriate project. With this blog, they would be able to automate trigger of appropriate pipeline based on the project folder where the file gets changed.Read More

Since the post Using AWS CodePipeline, AWS CodeBuild, and AWS Lambda for Serverless Automated UI Testing was published, things have evolved with Chrome headless and Firefox headless being supported natively. AWS Lambda now supports container images, AWS Step Functions has added support for Map state and its integration with Lambda, and AWS Fargate has enabled […]Read More
This post discusses how we can speed up the development of our Kubernetes infrastructure by using a continuous integration (CI) pipeline to build our Docker images and automatically deploy them to our Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) cluster using FluxCD and the GitOps philosophy as the continuous delivery (CD) element. To do so, we […]Read More
This post provides a step-by-step guide on how to model and provision AWS Glue workflows utilizing a DevOps principle known as infrastructure as code (IaC) that emphasizes the use of templates, source control, and automation. The cloud resources in this solution are defined within AWS CloudFormation templates and provisioned with automation features provided by AWS […]Read More

We have seen mainframe customers often encounter scalability constraints, and they can’t support their development and test workforce to the scale required to support business requirements. These constraints can lead to delays, reduce product or feature releases, and make them unable to respond to market requirements. Furthermore, limits in capacity and scale often affect the quality of changes deployed, and are linked to unplanned or unexpected downtime in products or services.
The conventional approach to address these constraints is to scale up, meaning to increase MIPS/MSU capacity of the mainframe hardware available for development and testing. The cost of this approach, however, is excessively high, and to ensure time to market, you may reject this approach at the expense of quality and functionality. If you’re wrestling with these challenges, this post is written specifically for you.
Managing applications deployments on Raspberry Pi can be cumbersome, especially in headless mode and at scale when placing the devices outdoors and out of reach such as in home automation projects, in the yard (for motion detection) or on the roof (as a humidity and temperature sensor). In these use cases, you have to remotely […]Read More
