Use modular architecture for flexible and extensible RAG-based generative AI solutions

In this post, we cover an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud infrastructure with a modular architecture that enables you to explore and take advantage of the benefits from different Retrieval-Augmented Generation (RAG)-based generative AI resources in a flexible way. This solution provides several benefits, along with faster time-to-market and shorter development cycles.

Disaster response and risk management using PNNL’s Aether framework on AWS

The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) developed Aether as a reusable framework for sharing data and analytics with sponsors and stakeholders. Aether is a mature cloud-centered framework designed using Amazon Web Services (AWS) serverless services to provide a cost-effective and reliable environment for a dozen projects currently deployed with the framework. Read this post to learn more about how Aether’s serverless-first approach is enabling disaster response and risk management.

Alberta Motor Association transforms member experience and optimizes cost on AWS Cloud

The Alberta Motor Association (AMA) is a multi-service member-run organization that provides driving education, rewards, roadside assistance, travel, insurance, banking, and many other member-focused services. When AMA wanted to launch its community membership — their first true subscription-based membership — AMA decided to rethink its existing membership system

Migrate and modernize public sector applications using containers and serverless

Migrate and modernize public sector applications using containers and serverless

Many public sector customers are interested in building secure, cost-effective, reliable, and highly performant applications. Technologies like containerization and serverless help customers migrate and modernize their applications. In this blog post, learn how public sector customers use offerings from AWS like AWS Lambda, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) to build modern applications supporting diverse use cases, including those driven by machine learning (ML) and generative artificial intelligence (AI). If you want to learn more on this topic, please register to attend the webinar series, Build Modern Applications on AWS.

Implement a secure, serverless GraphQL architecture in AWS GovCloud (US) to optimize API flexibility and efficiency

Implement a secure, serverless GraphQL architecture in AWS GovCloud (US) to optimize API flexibility and efficiency

GraphQL is a query language and server-side runtime system for application programming interfaces (APIs) that prioritizes giving clients exactly the information they request and no more. GraphQL can help public sector customers focus on their data and provide ways to explore the data in their APIs. Learn a reference architecture using serverless technologies that you can use to build GraphQL-enabled solutions in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions to unify data access in real-time and simplify operations.

Orbital Sidekick uses AWS to monitor energy pipelines and reduce risks and emissions

Orbital Sidekick (OSK) uses advanced satellite technology and data analytics to help the energy industry protect pipelines and make them less vulnerable to risks such as leaks, contamination, and damage caused by construction and natural disasters. OSK uses compute and analytics services from AWS to power the scalable OSK data pipeline and imagery storage solution in order to persistently monitor tens of thousands of miles of pipeline energy infrastructure and deliver real-time, actionable insights to customers.

Creating a video storage and management system for your nonprofit

Nonprofit organizations are increasingly using videos to fundraise, raise awareness, and attract new members or donors. But storing large quantities of video has traditionally meant purchasing and maintaining expensive hardware, while cataloging large video collections can be a time-consuming task. The Media2Cloud on AWS solution in the AWS Solutions Library can help nonprofit organizations store, catalog, and search their video libraries in a way that is cost-effective, and that scales to meet any need. In this blog post, learn how Media2Cloud works and how your organization can use it to support your video program.

Improving the customer experience for high-traffic public services: An architecture guidance

Improving the customer experience (CX) has emerged as an imperative for government agencies. In this blog post, learn an architecture pattern that public institutions can use to improve CX while building and deploying secure, resilient, and performant web applications that support sudden surges in demand for public services. This architecture pattern addresses the need of an example use case in which an agency must request information from thousands to millions of civilians, who may access a single-page application at similar times, and then sends email notifications to each civilian to confirm their activity.

Civix simplifies online campaign finance reporting with AWS serverless technology

Civix, a government technology (GovTech) company and AWS Partner, uses AWS to provide software and services that support multiple public sector use cases, including election management, grants management, and more. Civix saw an opportunity to streamline how filers and third-party vendors manage and report disclosure data to states. Civix worked with the AWS Service Creation team to design and launch a serverless solution on AWS to support filers and campaign management vendors and to increase finance transparency for the constituents they serve.
