Build Next-Generation Microservices with .NET 5 and gRPC on AWS

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.

Blue/Green deployment with AWS Developer tools on Amazon EC2 using Amazon EFS to host application source code

Many organizations building modern applications require a shared and persistent storage layer for hosting and deploying data-intensive enterprise applications, such as content management systems, media and entertainment, distributed applications like machine learning training, etc. These applications demand a centralized file share that scales to petabytes without disrupting running applications and remains concurrently accessible from potentially […]

Github monorepo - CodePipeline Sample Architecture

Integrate GitHub monorepo with AWS CodePipeline to run project-specific CI/CD pipelines

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.

AWS CodeArtifact and your package management flow – Best Practices for Integration

You often use artifact repositories to store and share software or deployment packages. Centralized artifacts enable teams to operate independently and share versioned software artifacts across your organization. Sharing versioned artifacts across organizations increases code reuse and reduces delivery time. Having a central artifact store enables tighter artifact governance and improves security visibility. This post […]

Receive AWS Developer Tools Notifications over Slack using AWS Chatbot

Developers often use Slack to communicate with each other about their code. With AWS Chatbot, you can configure notifications for developer tools resources such as repositories, build projects, deployment applications, and pipelines so that users in Slack channels are automatically notified about important events. When a deployment fails, a build succeeds, or a pull request […]

Setting up a CI/CD pipeline by integrating Jenkins with AWS CodeBuild and AWS CodeDeploy

In this post, I explain how to use the Jenkins open-source automation server to deploy AWS CodeBuild artifacts with AWS CodeDeploy, creating a functioning CI/CD pipeline. When properly implemented, the CI/CD pipeline is triggered by code changes pushed to your GitHub repo, automatically fed into CodeBuild, then the output is deployed on CodeDeploy. Solution overview […]

Improve Build Performance and Save Time Using Local Caching in AWS CodeBuild

AWS CodeBuild now supports local caching, which makes it possible for you to persist intermediate build artifacts locally on the build host so that they are available for reuse in subsequent build runs. Your build project can use one of two types of caching: Amazon S3 or local. In this blog post, we will discuss […]
