Building Multi-Region AWS Client VPN with AWS Directory Service and Amazon Route 53

Building Multi-Region AWS Client VPN with Microsoft Active Directory and Amazon Route 53

Introduction Organizations often require a secure connection between their users and resources on internal networks. For organizations with a global workforce, traditional virtual private network (VPN) solutions can be difficult to scale. Providing a single VPN endpoint creates a single point of failure: an outage would mean loss of connectivity to critical IT infrastructure. Authenticating […]

Target Group Load Shedding for Application Load Balancer

Load Shedding Load shedding is the practice of sacrificing enough application traffic to keep partial availability in the presence of an overload condition. Used in conjunction with strategies like load balancing, load shedding helps applications support service level agreements (SLAs) when increased traffic overwhelms available system resources. While the cloud’s elasticity reduces the need for […]

Using Route 53 Resolver DNS Firewall Logs with CloudWatch Contributor Insights and Anomaly Detection
