This blog post is written by Riaz Panjwani, Solutions Architect, Canada CSC and Dylan Souvage, Solutions Architect, Canada CSC. Security is the top priority at AWS. This post shows how you can level up your application security posture on your Amazon Lightsail instances with an AWS Web Application Firewall (AWS WAF) integration. Amazon Lightsail offers […]
This blog explores building scalable API Gateway integrations for microservices using VPC links. VPC links enable forwarding external traffic to backend microservices without exposing them to the internet or leaving the AWS network. The post covers scaling considerations based on using REST APIs versus HTTP APIs and how they integrate with NLBs or ALBs across VPCs.
Managing Lambda layers across multiple accounts and Regions can be challenging at scale. By using a combination of AWS Config, EventBridge Scheduler, AWS Systems Manager (SSM) Automation, and CloudFormation StackSets, it is possible to streamline the process.

Chaos engineering helps you create the real-world […]
Using Lambda extensions can open up a wide range of options to extend the capability of serverless architectures. This blog shows a Lambda extension that creates a secure VPN tunnel using the WireGuard protocol and the Tailscale service to proxy events through to an EC2 instance inaccessible from the internet.
In November 2022, AWS announced the public preview of AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM) support for HashiCorp Terraform. The public preview introduces a subset of features to help Terraform users test serverless applications locally. Today, AWS is announcing the general availability of Terraform support in AWS SAM. This GA release expands AWS SAM’s feature […]
AWS Step Functions is emerging as a foundational tool for building scalable and distributed serverless applications through workflows. In 2021, the Step Functions team launched Workflow Studio, a low-code visual tool for creating Step Functions workflows in the AWS Management Console. This made workflow building accessible even to those with limited coding experience. In response to […]
This blog post is written by Jared Thompson, Specialist Solutions Architect, Hybrid Edge. Today, we announced AWS Outposts rack support for intra-VPC communication across multiple Outposts. You can now add routes in your Outposts rack subnet route table to forward traffic between subnets within the same VPC spanning across multiple Outposts using the Outpost local […]
