AWSOS-P5: Exploring the vast and growing AWS Open Source - Part 5

In this fifth part 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-P5: Amazon Web Services (AWS) Open Source - Part 5

Babelfish for PostgreSQL

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

"A SQL Server-compliant endpoint for PostgreSQL to fluently understand the communication of applications written for SQL."

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

“It is an open source project under the Apache-2.0 license, adding a Microsoft SQL Server compatible endpoint to PostgreSQL to allow your PostgreSQL database to understand the SQL Server cabling protocol and the most commonly used SQL Server commands. With Babelfish, applications that were originally built for SQL Server can work directly with PostgreSQL, with little or no code changes, and without changing the database drivers. "

Note: Much more information about Babelfish for PostgreSQL can be obtained in the Official Amazon Blog, such as in the following link.

EKS Distro

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

"A certified Kubernetes Distribution based on and used by Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) to build secure and reliable Kubernetes clusters."

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

“With EKS-D, you can rely on the same versions of Kubernetes and their dependencies that are deployed by Amazon EKS. This includes the latest mainstream updates as well as expanded security patch support. EKS-D follows the same Kubernetes release cycle as Amazon EKS, and we provide the bits here. EKS-D provides the same software that has enabled tens of thousands of Kubernetes clusters on Amazon EKS. "

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

“The main difference between EKS (the AWS Kubernetes cloud service) and EKS-D is in how they are managed. EKS is a fully managed Kubernetes platform, while EKS-D can be installed and managed by yourself. EKS-D can be run on premises, in the cloud, or on your own systems. EKS-D provides a way to have essentially the same Amazon EKS Kubernetes distribution running wherever you need to run it. "

Note: Much more information about EKS Distro can be obtained in the Official Amazon Blog, such as in the following link.

Bottlerocket

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

"A Linux-based Operating System to host containers."

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

“Bottlerocket is free and open source, with a focus on security and maintainability, providing a reliable, consistent and secure platform for container-based workloads. It is a reflection of what we have learned building Operating Systems and services at Amazon. The base operating system has just what you need to reliably run containers, and it is built with standard open source components. Bottlerocket-specific additions focus on reliable updates and the API. Instead of making configuration changes manually, you can change the configuration with an API call, and these changes are automatically migrated through updates. "

Note: Much more information about this small and simple utility called Bottlerocket can be obtained in the Official Amazon Blog, such as in the following link.
