AWS re:Invent recap: Modernize your applications with Amazon EFS

Development teams are modernizing their applications by adopting containers, serverless, and microservices-based architectures. As containers are transient in nature, long-running applications can benefit from keeping state in durable file storage. At the same time, serverless computing enables you to be more agile while spending less time dealing with the security, scalability, and availability of your […]

Persistent storage for container logging using Fluent Bit and Amazon EFS

Logging is a powerful debugging mechanism for developers and operations teams when they must troubleshoot issues. Containerized applications write logs to standard output, which is redirected to local ephemeral storage, by default. These logs are lost when the container is terminated and are not available to troubleshoot issues unless they are stored on persistent storage […]
