A few years ago Amazon SageMaker introduced direct support for reinforcement learning (RL) through integration of RL-frameworks, including Ray. However, support has not been kept up to date and the supported versions are no longer what you might call current.

From fragile to formidable: How to detect, fix and prevent container vulnerabilities with Inspector and Docker Scout
A webserver running on a container. Sound simple. Let`s dive deeper into how your architecture choices affect application security. I use docker scout for the container and show how Amazon Inspector can serve as a general-purpose security tool.
Recently I’ve been engaged in my first reinforcement learning project using Ray’s RLlib and Sagemaker. I had dabbled in machine learning before, but one of the nice things about this project is that it allows me to dive deep into something unfamiliar. Naturally, that results in some mistakes being made. Today I want to share a bit about my experience in trying to improve the iteration time for the IMPALA algorithm in Ray’s RLlib.
GO-ing to production with Bedrock RAG Part 2: Develop, Deploy and Test the RAG Backend with SAM&Postman
In part one, we took the journey from a POC monolith to a scaleable two-tier architecture. The focus is on the DevOps KPI deployment time and the testability. With the right tools - AWS SAM and Postman - the dirty work becomes a nice walk in the garden again. See what a KEBEG stack can achieve!
In today’s data-driven world, effective data management is crucial for organizations aiming to make well-informed, data-driven decisions. As the importance of data continues to grow, so does the significance of robust data management practices. This includes the processes of ingesting, storing, organizing, and maintaining the data generated and collected by an organization. Within the realm of data management, schema evolution stands out as one of the most critical aspects. Businesses evolve over time, leading to changes in data and, consequently, changes in corresponding schemas. Even though a schema may be initially defined for your data, evolving business requirements inevitably demand schema modifications. Yet, modifying data structures is no straightforward task, especially when dealing with distributed systems and teams. It’s essential that downstream consumers of the data can seamlessly adapt to new schemas. Coordinating these changes becomes a critical challenge to minimize downtime and prevent production issues. Neglecting robust data management and schema evolution strategies can result in service disruptions, breaking data pipelines, and incurring significant future costs. In the context of Apache Kafka, schema evolution is managed through a schema registry. As producers share data with consumers via Kafka, the schema is stored in this registry. The Schema Registry enhances the reliability, flexibility, and scalability of systems and applications by providing a standardized approach to manage and validate schemas used by both producers and consumers. This blog post will walk you through the steps of utilizing Amazon MSK in combination with AWS Glue Schema Registry and Terraform to build a cross-account streaming pipeline for Kafka, complete with built-in schema evolution. This approach provides a comprehensive solution to address your dynamic and evolving data requirements.
The way from a cool POC (proof of concept), like a walk in monets garden, to a production-ready application for an RAG (Retrieval Augmented Generation) application with Amazon Bedrock and Amazon Kendra is paved with some work. Let`s get our hands dirty. With streamlit and langchain, you can quickly build a cool POC. This two-part blog is about what comes after that.
Der Amazon OpenSearch Service, der auf dem robusten OpenSearch-Framework basiert, zeichnet sich durch seine bemerkenswerte Geschwindigkeit und Effizienz in Such- und Analysefunktionen aus. Trotz seiner Stärken sind die Standardkonfigurationen des Dienstes möglicherweise nicht vollständig darauf ausgelegt, die spezifischen sprachlichen Herausforderungen bestimmter Sprachen zu bewältigen.
Welcome back to our series on implementing SAML Federation for Amazon OpenSearch Service. In our previous post, we explored setting up SAML Federation using OneLogin. Today, we’ll focus on another popular identity provider - Keycloak. Keycloak is an open-source Identity and Access Management solution, ideal for modern applications and services. We’ll guide you through integrating Keycloak with Amazon OpenSearch Service to implement SAML Federation.
