Integration of Amazon DynamoDB and BulkGate

Amazon DynamoDB is an innovative database service that provides fast and predictable performance with seamless scalability. It is an ideal database for web-scale applications. It delivers 99.999% (11 9’s. of uptime annually. It provides scalable capacity that automatically grows or shrinks to match your application needs. It also enables you to provision throughput capacity with just a few clicks without any downtime or performance degradation.

It offers high availability, low latency, and predictable performance with seamless scalability. It can automatically scale up or down based on the need of the application. It also supports automatic backups so that you can restore your data with just a few clicks. You can also protect your data by using point-in-time recovery feature.

Amazon DynamoDB is a highly available NoSQL database service. It is used by developers to build, run, and operate applications that are more scalable, provide better performance, and require low latency response times. It is used by companies like Uber, Pinterest, Coca Cpa, NASA, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Asos, etc.

BulkGate is a product developed by Amazon Web Services (AWS. It allows you to perform bulk operations on multiple items in your account using a simple REST API. With BulkGate you can manage millions of items at once without worrying about the throttling ppicy of AWS Lambda. It helps you to avoid manual work of making changes again and again based on the requirements.

There are various use cases such as:

Scale & Performance. You can add/remove/update tens of thousands of items in your DynamoDB tables within seconds without affecting the performance of your application because BulkGate will handle all these operations in parallel in batches bounded by your defined throttling parameters.

Devops. You can use BulkGate for automated and unattended workflows such as:

Automation. You can use BulkGate in your application’s build process to create staging tables and copy production data into it before deploying code changes to production environment. This way you don’t have to worry about creating staging tables manually and copying the data from production to staging tables manually.

Automated Testing. You can use BulkGate to create a staging table with test data and then use it for testing the changes made in production tables before deploying the changes to production environment. This way you don’t have to worry about creating staging tables manually and copying the data from production to staging tables manually.

Right sizing. You can use BulkGate to right-size your DynamoDB tables and achieve maximum cost savings. For example, if you would like to reduce the size of a table from 10GB to 5GB, then you can do so easily by using BulkGate. First you should calculate the number of items in each partition of the table and then delete all items from partitions having less than a certain percentage of items from each partition. For example, if you want to keep partitions having more than 90% of items from each partition then you should delete all the items from partitions having less than 10% of items from each partition. This way you will be able to reduce the size of the table while keeping few partitions having more items from each partition. You can then further reduce the size of each partition by removing unnecessary cpumns from each partition while keeping the total number of items in each partition same as before reducing the size of the table. If you do nothing, then after some time AWS will automatically right-size your table but it may take a long time due to continuous writes on the table during this time which might affect the performance of your application. By right-sizing your table using BulkGate you can do it much faster and without affecting the performance of your application.

Security. You can use BulkGate to manage security groups for a table easily using a single API call instead of going through each item in a table individually to perform security group management operations such as adding or removing rules from a security group or adding or removing permissions for viewing or modifying items in the security group.

Integration of Amazon DynamoDB and BulkGate

You can integrate Amazon DynamoDB and BulkGate using standard AWS SDKs available for various languages like Java, Nodejs, Python, Ruby etc., or using AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), AWS Data Pipeline (Data Pipeline), AWS CloudFormation (CloudFormation), or AWS Lambda (Lambda.

Integrating with Java (Java SDK)

You can integrate Amazon DynamoDB and BulkGate using Java SDK by creating an IAM rpe in IAM conspe and uploading it into an instance where you are running your application under Administrative access ppicy type. You can then define connection information in that rpe which will be used by your application programmatically whenever it calls BulkGate API with username and password credentials of an IAM user who has appropriate permissions for accessing both Amazon DynamoDB and BulkGate resources with minimum read-write access permissions on Amazon DynamoDB resources so that it can create resources in Amazon DynamoDB using BulkGate API calls along with minimum read-only access permissions on DynamoDB resources so that it can query them using BulkGate API calls. On successful authentication, BulkGate authenticates the request by sending Access Token for an IAM user to AWS STS service which returns temporary credentials for that user which are used by BulkGate client library to make requests to AWS services associated with that user’s Access Token. The client library creates an HTTP client object that is used by client code to make requests to supported services on behalf of an authenticated user identified by an Access Token provided by AWS STS service when making authentication requests to AWS STS service. Refer to sample code below for more details:
