Using the K3s Kubernetes distribution in an Amazon EKS CI/CD pipeline

Modern microservices application stack, CI/CD pipeline, Kubernetes as orchestrator, hundreds or thousands of deployments per day—this all sounds good, until you realize that your Kubernetes development or staging environments are messed up by these deployments, and changes done by one developer team are affecting your developer team’s Kubernetes environment. In this post, we will walk […]

Simplifying serverless best practices with Lambda Powertools

Modern applications are increasingly relying on compute platforms based on containers and serverless technologies to provide scalability, cost efficiency, and agility. Although this shift toward more distributed architectures has unlocked many benefits, it has also introduced new complexity in how the applications are operated. In times past, debugging was as straightforward as logging into the […]

Deploy, track, and roll back RDS database code changes using open source tools Liquibase and Jenkins

Customers across industries and verticals deal with relational database code deployment. In most cases, developers rely on database administrators (DBAs) to perform the database code deployment. This works well when the number of databases and the amount of database code changes are low. As organizations scale, however, they deal with different database engines—including Oracle, SQL […]
