Securing a Web Application with AWS Application Load Balancer

Stackery

Editor’s note: while we love serverless at Stackery, there are still some tasks that will require the use of a virtual machine. If you’re still using an Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) Virtual Machine, enjoy this very useful tutorial on load balancing. That’s what I’m using AWS Application Load Balancer (“ALB”) for, even though I have only a single instance at the moment so there’s no actual load balancing going on.

Serverless in 2019: From ‘Hello World’ to ‘Hello Production’

Stacks on Stacks

As the CEO of Stackery, I have had a unique, inside view of serverless since we launched in 2016. I get to work alongside the world’s leading serverless experts, our customers, and our partners and learn from their discoveries. After two-and-a-half years of building serverless applications, speaking at serverless conferences, and running the world’s leading serverless company, I have a few ideas of what’s in store for this technology. serverless aws aws-lambda

The latter might need computing power for the PDF creation, so a scalable serverless function might make sense here. Kubernetes does all the dirty details about machines, resilience, auto-scaling, load-balancing and so on. as serverless functions: Serverless business logic I used Azure Functions and made use of the command line client to do so. We also wanted to leverage the Serverless framework , which I think is a very good idea to do when doing serverless.

With ECS, you can deploy your containers on EC2 servers or in a serverless mode, which Amazon calls Fargate. Benefits of Amazon ECS include: Easy integrations into other AWS services, like Load Balancers, VPCs, and IAM. This pricing structure has the “serverless architecture” benefit of only paying for what you need when you need it, but also means that estimating these charges can be quite difficult.
