Automate cybersecurity analysis with MBSE workflows enabled by AWS

Digital engineering fundamentally relies on integrating data across model structures by using a digital thread – an underlying framework for integrating data from across traditionally siloed functions that create a consolidated view of the system’s data throughout its lifecycle. The cloud is integral to digital engineering by supporting collaboration across geographically dispersed organizations, automating workflows for data connectivity and trade space analysis in a reliable, scalable, and cost-effective manner. This post describes how Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) has used digital engineering in combination with secure and scalable AWS services, to deliver secure IT systems to a large defense program.

Deploy LLMs in AWS GovCloud (US) Regions using Hugging Face Inference Containers

Government agencies are increasingly using large language models (LLMs) powered by generative artificial intelligence (AI) to extract valuable insights from their data in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud (US) Regions. In this guide, we walk you through the process of hosting LLMs on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, using the Hugging Face Text Generation Inference (TGI) Container (TGI) for serving custom LLMs.

Renaissance Learning improves operations and scalability by migrating to AWS

Renaissance Learning is a global leader in the pre-K–12 education technology (EdTech) space. Renaissance delivers its products to 16 million students across the world, and its digital solutions are used in more than one-third of US schools and 100-plus countries. As part of its cloud consolidation strategy, Renaissance migrated DnA, its standards-based assessment creation and administration solution, from Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to Amazon Web Services (AWS). After migration, Renaissance realized performance, scalability, and security improvements, all while reducing cloud spend by 30 percent.

Connectivity patterns between AWS GovCloud (US) and AWS commercial partition

AWS GovCloud (US) was architected to have isolation (both physically and logically) from other AWS partitions for compliance. For this reason, AWS services, used to privately interconnect virtual private cloud (VPC) hosted resources within the same partition like AWS PrivateLink, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) peering, or AWS Transit Gateway peering, cannot span from AWS GovCloud (US) to commercial Regions natively by design. In this post, we will highlight four connectivity patterns customers can use to interconnect VPC hosted systems cross partition.

How Pearson improves its resilience with AWS Fault Injection Service

Chaos engineering, often misunderstood as intentionally breaking the production environment, aligns with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Well-Architected Reliability pillar. Its purpose is to methodically simulate real-world disruptions in a controlled manner, spanning service providers, infrastructure, workloads, and individual components. In this blog post, we show how Pearson PLC, an AWS education technology (EdTech) customer, successfully implemented resilient architectures through chaos engineering using AWS Fault Injection Service (FIS).
