AWS CLI tips and tricks

By | AWS, Cloud | No Comments

When working with AWS, I would not advice to run all operations through the AWS Console. And it’s not always possible or easy to do it only with pipelines and Infrastructure as Code. Sometimes, we just need to perform the same operations on many instances or we already have an automation based on a script. In those situations, AWS CLI (the command line) can be very handy. I had the chance recently to attend a…

AWS re:Invent 2021 – 4th day

By | AWS, Cloud, Technology Survey | No Comments

On Thursday morning, I attended the keynote Dr Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon. I have the feeling it’s one of the most awaited keynote, Werner Vogels is not just launching new services but also provide a better view on the architecture of the Cloud. The keynote started with a movie about Werner Vogels doing a road trip to Las Vegas. I think I haven’t mentioned it yet but this year is the 10th anniversary of…

By | AWS, Cloud, Technology Survey | No Comments

Time flies, it’s already the 3rd day at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas. As I like to have dedicated time for hands-on I started again the day with another workshop. It’s a lot of knowledge to process daily, when taking the workshop here, AWS provides a temporary account and prepared environments but hopefully most of the workshops can be done on your own accounts later. The topic was the multi-account strategy and how to create/manage…

AWS re:Invent 2021 – A busy day to start

By | AWS, Technology Survey | No Comments

This week, I consider myself lucky I’m working with AWS at customer and at dbi since few years now and I consider myself lucky to attend the conference in person. At re:Invent, there are different types of content so you can adapt your schedule. I personally tried this year to get some diversity, I started the week with a workshop on EKS. As we can imagine, workshop sessions are really the kind of place where…

AWS re:invent 2018 – Day 5 – Final day

By | Technology Survey | No Comments

On Friday, it’s the last day for AWS re:Invent convention in Las Vegas. I didn’t know in advance what to expect because I have to admit that even if I started to use AWS, there is still a lot to learn. And that’s why I personally think working with technology is interesting, it’s always moving and there is always something new to investigate or learn. This morning, I attended a very interesting session about the life of…

Thursday morning it’s time for the keynote from Dr Werner Vogels. A big part of the keynote was about databases again. Maybe AWS people knows that there are still lots of DBAs out there! It’s also again a focus on Amazon Aurora (relational), Dynamo DB (NoSQL) and AWS Redshift that are replacing Oracle databases Amazon was using. There was also a focus on how S3 works to maintain the best durability for the data. I’ve seen…

AWS re:invent 2018 – Day 2

By | Technology Survey | No Comments

Second day in Las Vegas for the AWS re:Invent conference. It was time to travel a little bit around the campus to attend some sessions at the Aria. The planning was still around databases and a bit AWS knowledge. The shuttle service worked perfectly in both directions with a reasonable time travel between the 2 hotels. But with such time travels, you can’t always be in all sessions you would like to see. I started…

AWS re:invent 2018 – Day 1

By | Technology Survey | No Comments

Yesterday was my first day at AWS re:Invent conference. The venue is quite impressive, the conference is split between 6 hotels where you can attend different types of sessions including chalk talk, keynotes, hands-on labs or workshop. For my first day, I stayed in the same area in The Venetian to make it easy. The walking distance is quite big between some places so it requires to carefully plan the day to be able to see…
