English | 2024 | ISBN: 978-1835081082 | 378 Pages | EPUB | 38 MB

Build scalable, cost-effective, high-performance, and secure architectures using AWS Outposts, AWS Local Zones, AWS Wavelength, and AWS Snow services along guided by best practices and practical examples

Key Features:

  • Take advantage of the opportunities and challenges arising from the exponential growth of connected devices
  • Use AWS edge compute services to extend your applications to wherever they are needed
  • Follow guided tutorials for building an IIoT gateway and a distributed edge application with AWS services

The surge in connected edge devices has driven organizations to capitalize on the opportunities presented by the massive amounts of data generated by these devices. However, adapting to this landscape demands significant changes in application architectures.

This book serves as your guide to edge computing fundamentals, shedding light on the constraints and risks inherent in selecting solutions within this domain. You’ll explore an extensive suite of edge computing services from AWS, gaining insights into when and how to use AWS Outposts, AWS Wavelength, AWS Local Zones, AWS Snow Family, and AWS IoT Greengrass. With detailed use cases, technical requirements, and architectural patterns, you’ll master the practical implementation of these services and see how they work in real life through step-by-step examples, using the AWS CLI and AWS Management Console. To conclude, you’ll delve into essential security and operational considerations to maximize the value delivered by AWS services.

By the end of this book, you’ll be ready to design powerful edge computing architectures and handle complex edge computing use cases across multiple AWS services.

What You Will Learn:

  • Overcome network challenges faced at the near and far edge
  • Leverage services in over 450 points of presence at the edge of the AWS global backbone
  • Deploy edge solutions in disconnected scenarios using AWS Snow Family
  • Build multi-access edge (MEC) solutions with 5G and AWS Wavelength
  • Reduce latency for your users with AWS Local Zones
  • Configure AWS Snowcone as an IIoT gateway with AWS IoT Greengrass
  • Extend your AWS VPC into your on-premise data center with AWS Outposts
  • Deploy distributed applications for core, near, and far edge cloud services
