Session: Deploying Microservices to AWS Fargate

KPMG have built a customer due diligence solution for a high-profile banking client in AWS. The solution is made up of a number of microservices which are deployed to containers using AWS Fargate. This presentation will dive into the details of the architecture of the solution, how the infrastructure and applications are deployed using third party tools such as Hashicorp’s Terraform and Jenkins, and the best practices when running containers in production workloads. The presentation will cover details on the AWS resources used in the solution, including DynamoDB, ECS, Fargate and S3, CI/CD and automation, with a focus around security to meet banking regulatory requirements. We will look at how KPMG have configured for canary deployments to ECS Fargate, how we manage secrets management and encryption, and how we manage service discovery between the microservices using ECS Service Discovery and Route 53.
