AWSOS-P2: Exploring the vast and growing AWS Open Source - Part 2

In this second from the series of articles on the “Amazon Web Services (AWS) Open Source » We will continue our exploration of the vast and growing catalog of open apps developed by the Technological Giant de «Amazon.

In order to continue expanding our knowledge of the open applications released by each of the Technological Giants of the group known as GAFAM. What, as many already know, is made up of the following North American companies: "Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft".

Applications of the AWS Open Source

Remember that, the AWS Open Source can be explored through the following 3 links below GitHub:

  1. AWS Open Source
  2. Amazon Web Services repositories
  3. Amazon File Repositories

And that we are currently exploring the applications contained in the first. Therefore, the next 3 applications to comment are:

AWSOS-P2: AWS Open Source Applications - Part 2

Blox

Briefly, on the website «AWS Open Source » of AWSOS describe this software development as follows:

"One place to facilitate third-party scheduler creation and integration on ECS, while leveraging Amazon ECS to fully manage and scale your clusters."

While his Official website add the following on top of it, as follows:

“It is a collection of open source projects for container management and orchestration on Amazon ECS. This allows you to offer more control over how your applications run in the containers arranged in Amazon ECS. These tools can range from scheduler frameworks that help you easily create custom tools on top of Amazon ECS, to command line tools (CLI) that provide local development tools for Amazon ECS. "

Note: For those who are not sure what it is Amazon ECS, this is a container management service for deploying and scaling Docker containers in production.

Finally, from your official site on GitHub It is worth highlighting the following information:

"Open source developers optimized to run applications on Amazon ECS offer greater control over how applications are deployed in resource clusters, run, and scale in production, allowing you to take advantage of powerful colocation capabilities."

Note: Much more information about Blox can be found in the Official Amazon Blog, in case you want to deepen the information about said development.

S2N

Briefly, on the website «AWS Open Source » of AWSOS describe this software development as follows:

"It is a C99 implementation of the TLS / SSL protocols that is designed to be simple, small, fast and with security as a priority."

While his website on GitHub add the following on top of it, as follows:

“It is published and licensed under the Apache License 2.0. And among its most outstanding features are the implementation of SSLv3, TLS1.0, TLS1.1 and TLS1.2. For encryption, AES 128 and 256 bits are supported, in CBC and GCM, ChaCha20, 3DES and RC4 modes. For forward secrecy it supports both DHE and ECDHE. And it also supports the TLS Server Name Indicator (SNI), Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation (ALPN) and Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) extensions. Whereas, SSLv3, RC4, 3DES and DHE are disabled by default, for security reasons. "

Note: Much more information about S2N can be found in the Official Amazon Blog, in case you want to deepen the information about said development.

Boto

Briefly, on the website «AWS Open Source » of AWSOS describe this software development as follows:

"It is a Software Development Kit (SDK) created by Amazon Web Services (AWS) for Python, which allows Python developers to write software that makes use of services such as Amazon S3 and Amazon EC2."

While his website on GitHub add the following on top of it, as follows:

“It has abundant, recent and updated documentation, which includes a list of supported services. And currently, Boto 3 is going for its stable version 0.0.14 dated 04/15, which tells us that it is an operational development that has not needed updates until today. "

Finally, from your official section on Amazon It is worth highlighting the following information:

"Boto3 makes it easy to integrate your Python application, library, or script with AWS services, including Amazon S3, Amazon EC2, Amazon DynamoDB, and more."

Note: Much more information about Boto and other Tools for developing and managing applications on AWS can be found in the Tools section for creating on AWS, in Spanish language, in case you want to deepen the information about said development or other similar ones.
