A 35-minute discussion for application developers considering a multi-cloud approach, including potential advantages, pain points, and tradeoffs to be aware of.
Amazon Lightsail allows a developer to build applications and websites fast, with very little cost, using pre-configured cloud resources on AWS. You can create a website or application in just a few clicks and automatically configure networking, access, and security environments with ease. It will easily scale as needed, or you can migrate your resources to a larger AWS ecosystem, such as Amazon EC2.
Recently, a client wanted to move and update an existing marketing / informational WordPress site from a typical hosting provider to their existing AWS environment. Let’s walk through that process and also explore some of the other options that are available with Amazon Lightsail.
A 55-minute dive into the “Serverless” framework, an open-source tool that aims to simplify building, packaging, and deploying serverless applications across multiple cloud providers and platforms like AWS, GCP, Azure, and Kubernetes.
The last few years have seen a lot of movement to bring applications that don’t require manual intervention from the mainframe to Unix, Linux, Windows servers, or even to the desktop. This concept is commonly known as batch programming, and Spring Batch has been the tool many of us are using to accomplish this. Another trend that is gaining steam is to move from an internally-hosted server to a cloud-hosted system.
In this post, we discuss multiple ways for transferring Spring Batch applications up to the AWS Cloud, including EC2, Docker, Lambda, and others. I concentrate on AWS in this post, but, from my experience in Google Cloud, the same ideas will apply…
AWS SQS (Simple Queue Service) can provide developers with flexibility and scalability when building microservice application(s). In this quick start tutorial, we will demonstrate how to configure a FIFO queue for a fictional online marketplace.
What Is A FIFO Queue?
A FIFO (first in, first out) queue is used when the order of items or events is critical, or where duplicates items in the queue are not permitted. For example:
– Prevent a user from buying an item that isn’t available on a marketplace.
