How can we swap out machine images? How do we perform rollbacks? How do we rotate the master SSH keys on a Kubernetes cluster provisioned with kops? How does an Identity-Aware Proxy handle non-HTTP traffic? How should we monitor our applications running under Kubernetes? Is it possible to only use some parts of the Cloud Posse solution? (For example, only leverage automated deployments) Running terraform apply on iam module errors with: The security token included in the request is invalid status code: 403 Which of your methods/approaches are not subject to change? What can we change?

Route 53 Best Practices dns aws best practices Use very short TTLs on SOA records (E.g. 60 seconds or less) Delegate Zones to every organization or use dedicated zones per organization (e.g. cloudposse.com, cloudposse.net, cloudposse.org) Use ALIAS records to map zone apex record to ELBs See Also Introduction to Reference Architectures AWS IAM Best Practices AWS Organizations Best Practices Chamber Identity Access Management (IAM) Route53 Contributors © 2019 Cloud Posse, LLC.
