Well-Architected

Overview of the APN Technical Baseline Review (100 Level)
Speaker: Claudine Morales, AWS Partner Solutions Architect

The Technical Baseline Review (‘baseline’) assesses a partner workload against a set of AWS best practices around security, performance, and operational processes. Passing the baseline is required for APN Technology Partners to achieve or retain Advanced Tier status, but all partners with a technology product offering are eligible to request a review, regardless of partner type or tier. This overview covers core baseline concepts, requirements for SaaS and customer-deployed workloads, review mechanics, and helpful resources.

Beyond the SQL WHERE Clause: Isolating SaaS Multi-Tenant Data in Shared Relational Databases (300 Level)
Speaker: Michael Beardsley, AWS SaaS Solutions Architect

SaaS providers leverage shared resources to maximize agility and minimize costs. As you move toward a more shared model, you must consider how you will still ensure that tenant resources remain isolated. This can be especially challenging when working with a shared relational database where tenant data sits side-by-side in the same tables. In these environments, you must find more creative ways to enforce the isolation of tenant data. In this session, we’ll explore the challenges and approaches to this problem, digging into specific mechanisms and strategies that can be used to realize your tenant isolation goals. This will allow you to move beyond the use of SQL WHERE clauses and focus on less invasive, more systemic models for enforcing isolation. More specifically, we’ll look at how you can leverage Row Level Security (RLS) policies in Amazon Aurora and Amazon RDS to implement a more robust isolation scheme.

Database Services

Business Continuity with Global Database (200 Level)
Speakers: Sailesh Krishnamurthy, AWS GM for Amazon Aurora, Steve Abraham, Amazon Aurora Principle Lead Data Architect

Amazon Aurora Global Database provides fast cross-region disaster recovery and enables high performance, low lag, cross-region scaling of reads with minimal impact on database performance. As a feature of Aurora, Global Database uses physical, storage-level replication as opposed to logical replication used by other MySQL-compatible databases. With physical replication, Aurora provides high availability features together with a greatly improved replication performance. Data is replicated between the primary and secondary regions usually within a second, with an upper bound of 5 seconds. In the unlikely event your database becomes degraded or isolated in an AWS region, secondary regions can be promoted to take full read-write workloads in under a minute.

Getting Started with CI/CD for Serverless applications (300 Level)
Speaker: Eric Johnson, AWS Serverless Senior Developer Advocate

Fact: Serverless removes the need to manage servers.
Fact: Serverless provides automatic scalability for applications.
Fact: Serverless allows developers to focus primarily on code.
Fact: Serverless improves the ability to innovate.
False: Code running on Lambda functions is always perfect.
While the serverless model empowers the developer in many ways, it does not remove the need for automated integration, testing, and deployment. Development teams that ignore this need can acquire technical debt quickly. This session will cover the advantages of a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline, and how it can help reduce time to market, time to repair, and code regression. We will also discuss applying a CI/CD pipeline to serverless architectures and the AWS tools that make this possible.

Lean Lambdas: Shedding the Bloat (300 Level)
Speaker: Eric Johnson, AWS Serverless Senior Developer Advocate

As developers build out Lambda functions, they often make use of external libraries to share code between functions or consume open source software. As more libraries are added, the function artifacts get larger and larger. Many of these libraries are used across multiple functions causing them to be bloated with the same libraries repeated across each function artifact. In this session I will demonstrate how to use Lambda layers to help make your Lambda functions “skinny” again. You’ll see how layers allow you to streamline your application artifacts and provide an easier way to standardize dependencies inside of your own projects and externally across applications.
