Top 15 Architecture Blog Posts of 2020

Post Syndicated from Jane Scolieri original https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/architecture/top-15-architecture-blog-posts-of-2020/

The goal of the AWS Architecture Blog is to highlight best practices and provide architectural guidance. We publish thought leadership pieces that encourage readers to discover other technical documentation, such as solutions and managed solutions, other AWS blogs, videos, reference architectures, whitepapers, and guides, Training & Certification, case studies, and the AWS Architecture Monthly Magazine. We welcome your contributions!

Field Notes is a series of posts within the Architecture blog channel which provide hands-on technical guidance from AWS Solutions Architects, consultants, and technical account managers, based on their experiences in the field solving real-world business problems for customers.

We would like to thank you, our readers, for spending time on our blog this last year. Much appreciation also goes to our hard-working AWS Solutions Architects and other blog post writers. Below are the top 15 Architecture & Field Notes blog posts written in 2020.

#2: Using VPC Sharing for a Cost-Effective Multi-Account Microservice Architecture

by Anandprasanna Gaitonde and Mohit Malik

Anand and Mohit present a cost-effective approach for microservices that require a high degree of interconnectivity and are within the same trust boundaries. This approach requires less VPC management while still using separate accounts for billing and access control, and does not sacrifice scalability, high availability, fault tolerance, and security.
