Initial Setup of Amazon Linux AMI in the EC2 Cloud

The configuration includes customization and important security settings. Amazon’s native Linux AMIs are optimized for their cloud environment and are eligible for the free tier, which allows you to run your own Linux server free for a year. The following tutorial assumes that you have registered for an AWS account, and have just launched a new EC2 instance based on one of the Amazon Linux AMIs. To start using your new Linux server, you’ll need to connect via SSH and manage it via the command-line interface (shell). Read on to learn how… Step 1. CloudFront Design Patterns And Best Practices — Abhishek Tiwari. CloudFront is a content delivery service offered by Amazon web services(AWS).

CloudFront Design Patterns And Best Practices — Abhishek Tiwari

CloudFront serves static contents (images, audio, video etc) using a global network of more than 28+ edge locations. Using these edge locations, CloudFront accelerates delivery of content by serving the cached copies of the content objects from a nearest edge location. Service is highly reliable and designed to be used with Amazon S3 or any other custom origin server. CloudFront can also serve the dynamic or interactive content but current support is quite limited compared to similar services such as Akamai.

Given that CloudFront is more cost effective than Akamai and service is evolving very rapidly in terms of features, I would highly recommend the CloudFront. There are some interesting uses patterns and best practices developed around the CloudFront. AWS Redshift: How Amazon Changed The Game – AK Tech Blog. Edit: Thank you to Curt Monash who points out that Netezza is available for as little as $20k/TB/year with hardware (and 2.25x compression) and that there is an inconsistency in my early price estimates and the fraction I quote in my conclusion.

AWS Redshift: How Amazon Changed The Game – AK Tech Blog

I’ve incorporated his observations into my corrections below. I’ve also changed a sentence in the conclusion to make the point that the $5k/TB/year TCO number is the effective TCO given that a Redshift cluster that can perform these queries at the desired speed has far more storage than is needed to just hold the tables for the workloads I tested. Author’s Note: I’ll preface this post with a warning: some of the content will be inflammatory if you go into it with the mindset that I’m trying to sell you on an alternative to Hadoop. I’m not. I’m here to talk about how an MPP system blew us away, as jaded as we are, and how it is a sign of things to come.

Amazonwebservices/aws-sdk-for-java. Amazon Web Services Blog. AWS Mobile Blog. AWS Java Blog. AWS Architecture Center. The AWS Architecture Center is designed to provide you with the necessary guidance and best practices to build highly scalable and reliable applications in the AWS Cloud.

AWS Architecture Center

These resources will help you understand the AWS platform, its services and features, and will provide architectural guidance for design and implementation of systems that run on the AWS infrastructure. Amazon Web Services provides a comprehensive set of services and tools for deploying Microsoft Windows-based workloads on its reliable and secure cloud infrastructure. The flexibility of AWS allows you to design your application architectures the way you like.

AWS Reference Architecture Datasheets provide you with the architectural guidance you need in order to build an application that takes full advantage of the AWS cloud. Each datasheet includes a visual representation of the architecture and basic description of how each service is used. The AWS Cloud platform includes a variety of cloud-based data storage options. My Blog: AWS Diagrams Adobe Illustrator Object Collection: First Release. Due to popular demand I've decided to release the collection of vector graphics objects I use to draw Amazon Web Services architecture diagrams.

My Blog: AWS Diagrams Adobe Illustrator Object Collection: First Release

This is the first release and more are on the way. This is an Adobe Illustrator CS5 (.AI) file. I've obtained this artwork from the original AWS Architecture PDF files published at the AWS Architecture Center. You can use Adobe Illustrator to open this file and to create your diagrams or you can export these objects to SVG format and use GNU software to work with them. The file has been saved in "PDF Compatibility Mode" so plenty of utilities can import it without the need of using Adobe Illustrator (With Inkscape for instance).

Amazon DynamoDB is a fast, highly scalable, highly available, cost-effective, non-relational database service. DynamoDB and Amazon Cloudsearch. Using Amazon DynamoDB and Amazon Elastic MapReduce.

The integration of Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) with Amazon DynamoDB enables several scenarios.

Using Amazon DynamoDB and Amazon Elastic MapReduce

For example, using a Hive cluster launched within Amazon EMR, you can export data to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) or upload it to a Native Hive Table. This walkthrough is presented first in a video and then in step-by-step instructions. You'll learn how to set up a Hive cluster, export DynamoDB data to Amazon S3, upload data to a native Hive table, and execute complex queries for business intelligence reporting or data mining. You can run queries against the data without using a lot of DynamoDB capacity units or interfering with your running application.
