JWTs (JSON Web Tokens) provide an easy and scalable way to perform user access control. JWTs are often used in microservices. As shown in the diagram, JWTs are signed by an authentication server, stored by the user, and can be validated by one or more application servers when a user makes an API call. The […]

Data partitioning helps to speed up your Amazon Athena queries, and also reduces your cost, as you need to query less data.  Partitioning data means that we split the data up into related groups of data.

1. Develop Cloud Native Applications The prerequisite of being able to deploy through a fully automated pipeline is to have cloud native applications. Those applications are stateless: they don’t keep state within the application, but use services to keep state (Cache, RDBMS, NoSQL). Stateless apps can easily be switched out during a deployment. You can […]

1. Introduction A new trend in software development is to break down applications into microservices and deploy them using containers. Containerization has many benefits over the traditional approach of using Virtual Machines. When adopting a microservices strategy, using containers is often the only way to success. The benefits of running containers are (but are not […]
