In my last post about Multi-Region AWS Architectures, I discussed how you could reduce end-user latency and increase availability by running your application in multiple regions. I compared AWS services that help you to run your application in various regions at the same time. In this post, we’ll focus on one data store that shines in multi-region architectures: Amazon DynamoDB.continue reading
Migrating workloads into the cloud — and specifically to AWS — comes with many advantages. You can operate workloads in new ways. When you only pay for what you use and add capacity within minutes, the world of auto-scaling opens up.continue reading
Amazon Web Services is always changing. New features are added and new services are launched all the time. But during re:Invent – the annual AWS conference – a flood of news is poured out on us. Some news will change the way we architect cloud-native applications today or in the coming months. While other news is irrelevant to us.
