I woke up today with fantastic news: AWS Community Builder has been renewed for the second time.
The AWS Community Builders program offers technical resources, education, and networking opportunities to AWS technical enthusiasts and emerging thought leaders passionate about sharing knowledge and connecting with the technical community.
Interested AWS builders should apply to the program to build relationships with AWS product teams, AWS Heroes, and the AWS community.
DubOps is a unique event that brings together DevOps, IT operations, and software development experts to share their knowledge and insights with the community. This event provides a platform for attendees to learn about the latest trends and best practices in the industry, as well as network with peers and thought leaders.
Registration for the Dubops event is now open, and we encourage anyone interested in attending to sign up early, as space is limited. Don’t miss this chance to expand your knowledge, connect with peers, and stay ahead of the curve in the ever-changing world of DevOps and IT operations.
Date: May 11th, 2023 Time: 18:00 – 21:00 Location: Zabeel House, Dubai, UAE Registration link: https://lnkd.in/dCd7V-vv We look forward to seeing you there!

sometimes you need to access AKS worker node to troubelshoot, but how to do that with AKS
Run the below command
kubectl get nodes
Output will give an idea about the worker nodes you have
Run a container image on the node by issuing the kubectl debug command in order to establish a connection to it. The following command begins the process of connecting to a privileged container that has been started on your node.
The AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure is the most secure, extensive, and reliable cloud platform, offering over 200 fully featured services from data centers globally.
AWS Data Center
AWS pioneered cloud computing in 2006 to provide rapid and secure infrastructure. AWS continuously innovates on the design and systems of data centers to protect them from man-made and natural risks. Today, AWS provides data centers at a large, global scale. AWS implements controls, builds automated systems, and conducts third-party audits to confirm security and compliance. As a result, the most highly-regulated organizations in the world trust AWS every day.
Availability Zone – AZ
An Availability Zone (AZ) is one or more discrete data centers with redundant power, networking, and connectivity in an AWS Region. Availability Zones are multiple, isolated areas within a particular geographic location. When you launch an instance, you can select an Availability Zone or let AWS choose one for you. If you distribute your instances across multiple Availability Zones and one instance fails, you can design your application so that an instance in another Availability Zone can handle requests.
Each AWS Region consists of multiple, isolated, and physically separate Availability Zones within a geographic area. This achieves the greatest possible fault tolerance and stability. In your account, you determine which Regions you need. You can run applications and workloads from a Region to reduce latency to end users. You can do this while avoiding the upfront expenses, long-term commitments, and scaling challenges associated with maintaining and operating a global infrastructure.
AWS Local Zone
AWS Local Zones can be used for highly demanding applications that require single-digit millisecond latency to end users. Media and entertainment content creation, real-time multiplayer gaming, and Machine learning hosting and training are some use cases for AWS Local Zones.
CloudFront – Edge Location
An edge location is the nearest point to a requester of an AWS service. Edge locations are located in major cities around the world. They receive requests and cache copies of your content for faster delivery.
It’s essential to consider the security implications before allowing direct access to cloud services and resources, particularly as the latter expands. Some individuals get around this problem by setting up a virtual machine within the virtual cloud network and linking it to all the cloud services. This cuts down on publicly accessible services while facilitating connections for developers and system administrators. This virtual machine (VM) is like a manual bastion or leap box.
Create a Bastion
Connect to Oracle’s cloud service. To access the main menu, choose the hamburger icon in the upper left corner.
On the menu select “Identity & Security > Bastion”.
Select the compartment and click the “Create bastion” button.
Enter the bastion name and select the VCN and subnet for the bastion. We need to enter a CIDR block allowlist. In this case I’ve used the subnet for my IP address from my internet service provider. Click the “Create bastion” button.
Click on the “Create session” button.
Our previously copied connection information should look something like this at this point.
The Object Storage service provides reliable, secure, and scalable object storage. Object storage is a storage architecture that stores and manages data as objects. Some typical use cases include data backup, file sharing, and storing unstructured data like logs and sensor-generated data.
Creating a Bucket
Open the navigation menu and click Storage. Under Object Storage, click Buckets.A list of the buckets in the compartment you’re viewing is displayed.
Select a compartment from the Compartment list on the left side of the page.A list of existing buckets is displayed.
Click Create Bucket.
Default Storage Tier: Select the default tier in which you want to store your data
Standard is the primary, default storage tier Use the Standard tier for storing frequently accessed data that requires fast and immediate access.
Archive is the default storage tier used for archive storage, Use the Archive tier for storing rarely accessed data that requires long retention periods. Access to data in the Archive tier is not immediate. Archived data must be restored before the data is accessible.
Object Events: Select Emit Object Events if you want to enable the bucket to emit events for object state changes. For more information about events.
Encryption: Buckets are encrypted with keys managed by Oracle by default, but you can optionally encrypt the data in this bucket using your own Vault encryption key. To use Vault for your encryption needs, select Encrypt Using Customer-Managed Keys
Uploading Files to a Bucket
To upload files to your bucket using the Console:
From the Object Storage Buckets screen, click the bucket name to view its details.
In the Object Name Prefix field, optionally specify a file name prefix for the files that you plan to upload.
If the Storage Tier field displays Standard, you can optionally change the storage tier to upload objects to.
