In these days of remote and smart working giving users access to private resources and applications is a hot topic.

A dial-up VPN is the tool that can solve this problem, giving home users and road warriors access to private corporate services that are not exposed on the internet (even if they are hosted on the AWS Cloud).

Implementing a VPN for end users is always a non-trivial task because there are always opposite requirements like:

  • Ease of configuration on clients and servers
  • Security
  • Centralized management

Introduction

Nowadays it is increasingly important to be able to monitor and track the status of your applications, as well as being able to easily identify the source of problems. Counting the ever-increasing number of digital services, regardless of their size and importance, this need is increasingly felt.

For some time we are also working with many modern and complex infrastructural patterns, such as microservices and serverless. Effective and centralized tools for monitoring must be found.

Far be it for me to describe and compare the various logging management programs, a single article would not be enough! We can say, however…


Protocols for file transfer to remote servers have been around since the dawn of computer networking. FTP (exactly, File Transfer Protocol) is one of the fundamental building blocks of the internet. Developed by an MIT student in the early 1970s, FTP has become the standard for remote file transfer and management for decades.

Over the years, FTP has been upgraded to provide several advantages. Most importantly, SFTP and FTPS have been developed to supplant the historical protocol by establishing secure data streams.

Network connectivity is the most fundamental and often ignored component in our daily life and work, we always take it for granted.

Sometimes our applications require performance, availability, and security levels that our normal internet connection doesn’t provide, especially when we want our on-premise running environment to take advantage of cloud services (like cloud storage).

When a low-latency, constant and predictable connection to cloud resources is required a VPN connection using your internet service provider isn’t the best option, luckily enough there’s a service for that.

Introduction

ETL is a fundamental step of a Machine Learning process as it is the stepping stone on which all the dataset for the model definition is based. Because of that, data scientists and MLOps experts carefully plan jobs and pipelines to manage the extraction of data from databases, often of different natures, clean and normalize data, and finally generate a data lake to make further enhancement on data during the investigation process.

Usually, this process involves different steps, coordinating their resolution, accessing different databases with different technologies, preparing many scripts, knowing different languages to query the relevant data, and so…

Big Data analytics is becoming increasingly important to draft major business choices in corporations of all sizes. However collecting, aggregating, joining, and analyzing (wrangling) huge amounts of data stored in different locations with a heterogeneous structure (e.g. databases, CRMs, unstructured text, etc.) is often a daunting and very time-consuming task.

Cloud computing often comes to the rescue, by providing cheap and scalable storage computing and data lake solutions, and in particular, AWS is the pack leader with the very versatile Glue and S3 services which allow users to ingest transform, and normalize store datasets of all sizes. …
