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.
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.
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 […]
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.
Managing NuGet packages for .NET development can be a challenge. Tasks such as initial configuration, ongoing maintenance, and scaling inefficiencies are the biggest pain points for developers and organizations. With its addition of NuGet package support, AWS CodeArtifact now provides easy-to-configure and scalable package management for .NET developers. You can use NuGet packages stored in […]
Learn how to perform application build commands as part of your AWS CDK build process by using the native AWS CDK bundling functionality.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
