Good morning everyone!
As you are reading this, it might be a Friday, so if it is, Happy Friday!
Before the weekend comes I would like to explain to all of you about yet another AWS service as part of my #100DaysOfAWS series.
This service can be summed up in two words ‘Big Data.’ This is Amazon EMR!
Big data can be described as a combination of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data. This data can be collected by organizations and then subsequently mined, as this can be a goldmine of useful information for your company’s growth and development. …
Hello everyone, and happy Friday!
Today I am going to be talking about AWs Rekognition, which is a ML service from AWS which be used to identify objects, people, text, scenes, and activities in images and videos, as well as detect any inappropriate content.
Amazon Rekognition also provides highly accurate facial analysis and facial search capabilities that you can use to detect, analyze, and compare faces for a wide variety of user verification, people counting, and public safety use cases.
I can be widely used in many different applications and context, making it a really powerful and interesting tool to…
I haven’t posted a blog post in a while, for good reason!
We just had a new baby, so I have spent the past month with my family, making the most of the newborn stage and ensuring my family is well looked after.
I am however now back! So expect to see lots more posts going forward from me.
Today I thought I would take a step back and have a look at a feature of cloud computing that provides many inherent benefits, and allows customers to build globally available applications, with the push of a button.
I hope you have all had a wonderful day. I am today adding another service to my #100DaysofAWS. Today, on day 36, I am talking about an extremely popular BI service, which can enable massive insights into your business operations.
This is AWS QuickSight!
Amazon quick site is a cloud powered business intelligence service that lets you deliver easy-to-understand insights to all of your employees / stakeholders, in a fast and reliable way.
AWS QuickSight can connect and analyze your data wherever it exists, whether that is native AWS services hosted on the AWS Cloud, spreadsheets or even…
On Today’s edition of the #100DaysofAWS Series, I thought I would take a step back.
Everyone always refers to ‘The Cloud’ without really understanding what it is.
I thought today I would explain more in detail what the Cloud is, and some benefits of using it compared to using your own Data Centre.
The Cloud may sound like this big scary concept, but it really isn’t! As the image states at the top of this page, There is no Cloud! It really is just someone else’s computer!
AWS, GCP, Azure, IBM Cloud, there are many providers out there…
Today I am going to add another post to my #100DaysofAWS series, in which Iam going to talk about a service which enables you to make most of the storage services available on AWS, in a on-premise solution. This is AWS Storage Gateway!
Storage Gateway is a way of extending an backing up your on premise storage into the AWS cloud. There are many reasons why you would like to do this — for example:
Welcome to my blog about The Well-Architected Framework — one of many of my posts in the #100DaysofAWS series in which I write as much as I can about as many AWS Services as I can!
I have touched on the Well-Architected Framework in an aforementioned blog post about passing the Cloud Practitioner Exam, but today I am going to explain in more detail each of the Five Pillars, in order to get a great understanding of how to use each Pillar to construct excellent architecture in the AWS Cloud.
The Framework describes important architectural concepts, design best…
Hey Everyone! Welcome back to my series all about cool AWS Services, called #100DaysofAWS. Today I am talking about a service that helps you analyze data that exists in your S3 buckets!
This is Amazon Athena.
Have you heard of SQL Before?
If you’ve followed my posts on here you will have seen me briefly mention it.
It standard for Structured Query Language, and it is the way many databases have been built, and this is what is referred to when you hear about a Relational Database.
SQL is simply the language used for extracting and organizing any data that…
Thanks for joining me again for another post in my #100daysofAWS series.
Today we aren’t talking about a service per say, but a fundamental component of cloud computing that is really important to get your head around if you are looking to pass certifications or get a job in the cloud computing landscape.
This is a concept that applies to all of the major cloud providers and cloud computing in general, but I will obviously discuss it through the lens of AWS as that it may go to CSP.
Without further ado, let's look at the Shared Responsibility…
Good Morning Everyone! Welcome back to yet another post for my #100daysofAWS series.
Today we are on day 30, and we are going to discuss one of AWS’s coolest collections of services. The Snow Family is a collection of physical devices which can help you achieve your storage and edge computing needs.
How many members are there in the snow family?
There are 4 members to this happy family: Snowcone, Snowball, Snowball Edge, and the big daddy, Snowmobile!
Let’s get started by looking at Snowcone.
AWS Snowcone is the smallest member of the AWS Snow Family. This baby is portable…
