Deep PostgreSQL Thoughts: Valuing Currency
AWS Open Source Blog
by Joe Conway
2M ago
The PostgreSQL community released a set of minor versions on May 9th, 2024 — one for each of the supported “stable” major versions. Later that same day, Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL followed up with its own release announcement. It was the first time that we launched a minor version the same day as the community, which got me thinking about how important it is to maintain PostgreSQL currency. I am not referring some interesting new cryptocurrency somehow based on PostgreSQL. And, although PostgreSQL is surely worth its virtual weight in gold, I don’t want to imply some tie to the gold standard ei ..read more

Some software components are really important to get right, like your application’s access control policies and core business logic. There are a growing number of tools to help you verify the correctness of these components by leveraging automated reasoning. In developing Cedar, an open source authorization policy language, we have found that the Lean proof assistant is a great tool for verifying Cedar’s correctness and security properties. Over the past 6 months, we built a formal model of Cedar in Lean, and proved that Cedar’s components satisfy key safety and security properties. Lean is a ..read more

Less than a week after Redis Inc. announced it was removing the open source license and pulling out of the Redis project, Redis contributors banded together to move the community to The Linux Foundation as the Valkey project. They did this almost immediately after the license change announcement went live, in response to community outcry on GitHub and on social media, asking to fork the project or join an existing fork. This reaction is not surprising — we’ve seen a similar response from other communities when their projects are relicensed. Open source developers and others invest significant ..read more

Building a Multicloud Resource Data Lake Using CloudQuery 
AWS Open Source Blog
by Ken Haynes

There are many reasons why AWS customers will arrive in a situation where they have applications and infrastructure deployed in a multicloud environment. These customers encounter many operational challenges with their applications distributed across a cloud estate that spans not only multiple Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) but also regions and accounts on AWS (or Subscriptions and Projects on other providers). One particular challenge is gathering and maintaining accurate and current metadata about their cloud resources. This metadata can be extracted from all CSPs but the APIs and data schem ..read more
