Application Integration Services AWS
Application integration Services AWS is a suite of services that leverage communication between decoupled components within microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications. The advantage being that you need not refactor the entire architecture to benefit – decoupling applications at any scale and reducing the impact of changes. This makes it easier to update and faster to release new features. This article focuses on aws application integration services and how aws is an inexpensive enterprise application.
Develop with agility
The biggest advantage of using application integration services to connect your apps is that you no longer need to write custom codes to allow interoperability. This also gives you a chance to limit writing extra set of codes that may seem repetitive in your microservices and functions.
You can shift your operational responsibilities to aws with application integration services. This allows you to focus on development and innovation. Aws allows automatic scaling so that you no longer need to provision, patch or manage servers.
Scale and fail independently
Segregating your app with application integration services gives an advantage of cross functioning. But, a failure or spike in one of the services will not affect the other services.
Message with confidence
Application integration messaging services can accommodate any level of throughput and use cross-availability zone message storage to provide high availability and durability.
AWS Application Integration Services
- Reliable high throughput pub/sub, SMS, email, and mobile push notifications
- Developing message queues that sends, stores, and receives messages between various applications at any volume.
- Offers message broker for Apache Active MQ that makes migration easy and enables hybrid architectures
- To coordinate multiple AWS services into serverless workflows so that you can build and update apps quickly
- To create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. All the efforts for serverless workloads and web applications.
- Offers a flexible API to securely access, manipulate, and combine data from multiple data sources
- Build an event-driven architecture that connects application data from your own apps, SaaS, and AWS services
No-code API Integration
- Automate the flow of data between SaaS applications and AWS services at nearly any scale, without code.
redBus case study
redBus, an Indian travel agency specializing in bus travel throughout India by selling bus tickets countrywide. People purchase tickets through their website or through the Web services of its agents and partners. They also have a software, on a Software as a Service (SaaS) basis, which gives bus operators the option of handling their own ticketing and managing their own inventories. They have sold more than 30 million bus tickets and have more than 1750 bus operators using the software to manage their operations.
The challenge was to handle processing fluctuations, which had a negative impact on productivity. On the technical end, procurement of servers or upgrading the server configuration was consuming more time than estimated. They wanted a solution that offered scalability to handle the company’s processing fluctuations; and they looked up to Amazon Web Services (AWS) for a solution.
Why Amazon Web Services
They tested the AWS solution on a small scale for several months. redBus realised that the solution was very workable and convenient. Although redBus was quite enthusiastic about the on-demand instances and variety of instance types, several other features cemented the company’s decision to migrate completely to AWS. Now they could manage access to servers through security groups, the easy-to-use, self-service management console, the concept of Elastic IPs, and superior support.
What did redBus incorporate?
For the solutions to be implemented, many AWS products were incorporated:
- Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2),
- Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS),
- Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3),
- Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS),
- Amazon CloudWatch.
They believed that AWS features like Elastic Load Balancing and multiple availability zones, provides the required infrastructure to build for redundancy and auto-failover for better scalability.
There have been measurable improvements in the functionality after incorporating aws. By scaling up and down dynamically based on the load they were able to maintain performance as well as minimize cost. Now as the staff is able to save some time because of the aws solutions, the company has got an overall benefit of 30-40%.
RedBus has benefited from one of the most unique features of aws, that is its ability to “instantly replicate the whole setup on demand for testing by creating and destroying instances on demand for experimentation, thereby reducing the time to market. Less time to market translates to increased profitability and success.
Since joining forces with AWS, redBus has gained the freedom to experiment on new solutions and applications at minimal cost, increased the efficiency of its operations, and improved its profitability.
