  • Serverless Architecture - Design Patterns and Best Practices

    As serverless architectures become more popular, customers are looking for a framework of patterns to help them identify how they can leverage AWS to deploy their workloads without managing servers or operating systems.

    This webinar session describes reusable serverless patterns. For each pattern, operational and security best practices with potential pitfalls and nuances will be described. The patterns involve services including but not limited to AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway, Amazon Kinesis Data Streams and Data Firehose, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon S3, AWS Step Functions, AWS Config, AWS X-Ray, and Amazon Athena.

    This session can help audience recognise candidates for various serverless architectures in an organisation and understand areas of potential savings and increased agility. For example, using X-Ray in Lambda for tracing and operational insight; a pattern on high performance computing (HPC) using Lambda at scale; Step Functions as a way to handle orchestration for both the Automation and Batch patterns; a pattern for Security Automation using AWS Config rules to detect and automatically remediate violations of security standards; CI/CD development pipelines for serverless, which includes testing, deploying, and versioning (SAM tools); working with services from AI/ML area; plus tips to optimise Lambda functions for performance and cost-effectiveness.

    What to expect:

    • Learn serverless architectural patterns
    • Understand best practices for use cases with serverless approach
