Reduce costs with an ephemeral Amazon FSx for Lustre file system

Create an ephemeral Amazon FSx for Lustre file system that’s active on an as-needed basis, allowing you to pay for services only when the system is used. With the file system running only when needed, you can still benefit from a powerful system with fast processing speeds without the high costs associated with a continuously running implementation.

Manage permission sets and account assignments in AWS IAM Identity Center with a CI/CD pipeline

Have you used existing corporate identities with AWS IAM Identity Center (successor to AWS Single Sign-On) to grant Active Directory groups access to AWS accounts and applications? Save time and minimize errors by managing permission sets automatically with a continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline built with AWS developer tools.

Reduce security risks from IaC drift in multi-Region AWS deployments with Terraform

Are your infrastructure as code (IaC) Terraform deployments on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud protected against drift? IaC drift, which can leave your data and resources exposed to security risks, is especially difficult to track down and remove in an environment that spans multiple AWS accounts and AWS Regions. You can do it though, and in this post we show you how.

Automate sports data polling with AWS Step Functions
