Top 8 AWS Developer Tools You Should Know About

Amazon is launching a set of AWS Developers Tools whose goal is to simplify DevOps so IT professionals can work faster, easier and more efficiently. The main purpose behind these AWS tools is to have the customer or developer be continuously “confident they’ll be able to find a tool for their job”, says Aron Kao, Amazon Web Services’ Senior Manager Product Marketing. So how about you – ready to code, test and deploy automatically with the help of AWS?

AWS CodeDeploy

The CodeDeploy tool lets you automatically deploy applications and update servers and instances of any size. This means a significantly easier workload for developers and quicker releases of new products and features.

AWS CodePipeline

AWS CodePipeline essentially automates the process of releasing a new software and works following the previous models the developer created. CodePipeline automates the phases of compilation, testing and implementation of the launch process each time someone makes an update or modification to the code.

AWS CodeCommit

This cloud-based source control service works with Git tools so you can avoid managing and scaling a version control system. Amazon Web Services released this solution to improve software quality and reduce the time it takes to continuously release new updates.

AWS CodeBuild

AWS CodeBuild works alongside AWS CodePipeline to provide a simpler method of building and testing code. AWS CodeBuild helps you avoid delays in producing software packages as it continually escalates and processes several compilations at the same time, thus removing them from the waiting queue. Also, there’s no need to set anything up or update as this service is fully-managed from the get go.

Blue-Green Deployment on AWS Quick Start

You can Blue-Green Deployment in order to create a CI/CD pipeline in under 20 minutes. It works with AWS Elastic Beanstalk, which is useful to deploy and manage apps in the cloud with no support infrastructure limits. This tool even lowers the risk of you accidentally using identical Blue-Green environments.

AWS Config

We recommend using Config to track AWS resource configuration changes and evaluate them against defined rules. It also verify if any change violate the rules. If it happens, AWS Config will mark the resource.

AWS Amplify for Mobile Development Framework

Building mobile backends have never been so easy. The Amplify tool includes UI components, a command line interface and a set of libraries to integrate your backend in any mobile and/or web app.

AWS Cloud Development Kit

Currently in developer preview, this AWS Cloud solution can give your team a high-level, oriented framework that helps you define your resources in whatever programming language you’re using. You can also build your AWS infrastructure using AWS Construct Library – a set of modules pre-built by the company.

Key Findings from the March Acronis Backup Survey

Current computer technology makes people think of a good security system as the only tool to protect all files and data. But there’s nothing infallible. We all need backups.  According to the World Backup Day Survey by Acronis, 31.4% of users never backed up their data in 2018.

Although more than 90% of consumers and enterprises create a data backup once a year, it’s not enough. We all need to get used to doing this more frequently. Acronis is one of the biggest providers of backup software and data protection solutions. They’ve even been learning about their users’ habits, worries and data loss experiences to improve their solution. So – what’s the best way to create a backup?

Acronis advise 3-2-1 rule for data protection

Over 60% of enterprises are concerned with crypto-jacking, social-engineering attacks or ransomware. This is a huge number of companies currently in danger of data compromise. So to make sure they all have their data under control, Acronis suggests IT managers use the 3-2-1 rule.

First off, businesses should create three copies of their most important data. Therefore, if disaster strikes, it will not delete the same content copy three times. Then, this data should be stored in two different formats, with one copy kept off-site. In fact, as many as 70% of users say they would pay $50 – $500 so as to recover data loss – which should tell us something about where our efforts should be ? .

On the other hand, almost 50% of Acronis survey participants have no idea about crypto-jacking, ransomware or social engineering attacks. Ultimately, suspicious email attachments and malicious links are the most popular techniques to attackers. Hence, our main advice would be to not open potentially infected content and not ignore the warning signs.

Keep updating your Operating System and apps

Old versions of your system and apps won’t have the same level of security as the latest updates. Attackers can access data in past systems way easier. Almost 45% of consumers have at least four devices at home – and 65% of them suffered data loss, either by themselves or family members. Can you imagine how much data could be stolen?
