Customers are often looking at running their services at global scale, deploying applications to multiple regions. While it has traditionally been hard to do this, often requiring months of engineering work, serverless has changed the game!
This hands-on talk will help you understand how to build different versions of a multi-region, active-active serverless backend.
Come learn the pros-and-cons of DNS routing versus IP Anycast, and see how you can leverage serverless services like Route 53, Global Accelerator, API Gateway, the Application Load Balancer, AWS Lambda and DynamoDB Global tables to build global scale, serverless applications.
While having a multi-region architecture increases the availability of your application, it also brings new sets of challenges.
One of these challenge is ensuring that the failover procedures work when needed since the last thing you want during a disaster is fixing the failover procedures. This session will also look into using chaos engineering techniques to make sure that when the real disaster happens, the failover is successful.
