Dev9, a Kirkland, WA software development consultancy specializing in cloud modernization for enterprise and midmarket companies, announced today that it has achieved AWS Advanced Consulting Partner Status. Advanced partners have completed extensive technical training, successfully delivered multiple complex implementations on AWS, and met a rigorous set of qualifications to achieve Amazon’s coveted partner status.
About 3 years ago at re:Invent, AWS exclaimed that there is no such thing as private cloud. But what about the many companies that were implementing cloud-like functionality in their data centers? After years of watching companies attempt to implement these solutions, I have to agree with Amazon’s public cloud stance.
Outages aren't new or unique. All public clouds have experienced some levels of outages across different offerings. So with 93% of organizations using cloud services with one form or another, how do organizations minimize the impact of network outages?
You probably don’t want to do this [#]. There are alternatives to manually joining DynamoDB NoSQL documents. These include denormalizing the data, which is quite common in NoSQL environments, as well as using Amazon’s Elastic Map Reduce (EMR) service, which does have a join feature in it. However using EMR just for joins is like getting a car when all you need is a radio. If you don’t need EMR and either can’t denormalize the data or just haven’t yet then this strategy may be for you.
Have you come to NoSQL technologies only after learning SQL for years? If so, then you’ve probably wanted to JOIN some different documents (like tables, but NoSQLier) together. If you’ve started off your career in NoSQL then this will give you an additional mental tool in addition to the code.
