  • The Right Way of Tracing AWS Lambda Functions

    With an emphasis on distributed tracing, this article discusses best practices for gaining and leveraging observability into AWS Lambda functions.

  • Building .NET Applications for AWS

    AWS provides a large set of online services. To use those services effectively, AWS offers .NET developers a complete SDK for building apps, and a set of toolkits for popular IDEs.

  • What’s Next in DevOps?

    The DevOps movement continues to grow and gain influence in the IT world and the business world at large. As the organisations become increasingly digital, the agility of our IT systems becomes critical to the life and health of the companies.

  • Containers in 2019: They're Calling it a [Hypervisor] Comeback

    The 2019 news cycle within the "cloud native" corner of the world has been abuzz with a word previously thought outmoded by the rapid rise of containers: “hypervisor.” This article explores the motivations behind this, focusing on security, user experience, and isolation flexibility, and concludes by speculating on the future direction of development within the cloud and container industry.

  • Kubernetes Workloads in the Serverless Era: Architecture, Platforms, and Trends

    Explore how microservices architecture has evolved into cloud-native architecture, where many of the infrastructure concerns are provided by Kubernetes in combination with additional abstractions provided by service mesh and serverless frameworks. In addition, the serverless ecosystem is evolving by exploring standard and open packaging, runtimes, and event formats.

  • Understanding Serverless: Tips and Resources for Building Servicefull Applications

    There are still many misconceptions and concerns regarding serverless solutions. Vendor lock-in, tooling, cost management, cold starts, monitoring and the development lifecycle are all hot topics where serverless technologies are concerned. This article shares tips and resources to guide serverless newcomers towards building powerful, flexible and cost-effective serverless applications.

  • Towards a Unified, Standard API for Consolidating Service Meshes

    Service mesh architectures enable a control and observability loop. At the moment, service mesh implementations vary in regard to API and technology, and this shows no signs of slowing down. Building on top of volatile APIs can be hazardous. Here we suggest to use a simplified, workflow-friendly API to shield organization platform code from specific service-mesh implementation details.

  • Deploying Docker Containers Using an AWS CodePipeline for DevOps

    In this walkthrough, learn how to perform continuous integration and deployment of Docker containers with no downtime using AWS CodePipeline and Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS).

  • Service Catalog and Kubernetes

    Cloud-native applications do not just live inside Kubernetes—they also benefit from using the available cloud managed services. Similar to Kubernetes' declarative object configuration model, the Open Service Broker API with the Service Catalog provides a declarative way to describe cross-platform/cross-cloud managed service dependencies.

  • Building a VPC with CloudFormation - Part 2

    If you're building separate Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) templates for each infrastructure use case, you can make existing templates more flexible by using Parameters, Conditions, Mappings, and Outputs.

  • Building a VPC with CloudFormation - Part 1

    This article describes how to use AWS CloudFormation to create and manage a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), complete with subnets, NATting, and more. It's a lesson in treating infrastructure as code when building and managing cloud resources.

  • The Serverless Sea Change

    This article defines and explains how serverless is different from other application architectures and then walks through a "proof" of sorts to show that serverless application architectures, when done properly, are superior to non-serverless architectures. Finally, it concludes with a number of rules of thumb to help architects and developers realize the benefits of serverless.
