Amazon Web Services (AWS CodeDeploy): Auto Assignment of Elastic IP to green/blue deployment fleet replacement instances.

With a blue/green deployment, you provision a new set of instances on which CodeDeploy installs the latest version of your application. CodeDeploy then reroutes load balancer traffic from an existing set of instances running the previous version of your application to the new set of instances running the latest version. After traffic is rerouted to the new instances, the existing instances can be terminated. Blue/green deployments allow you to test the new application version before sending production traffic to it. If there is an issue with the newly deployed application version, you can roll back to the previous version faster than with in-place deployments. Additionally, the instances provisioned for the blue/green deployment will reflect the most up-to-date server configurations since they are new. Problem with Blue/Green deployment is that once the fleet is replaces, if you had any EIP attached to the older instances, you have to manually reattch them to the new fleet. Her

autobotAI practices for managing compliance with security standards

We make sure that our system is security compliant all the time. We our self use autobotAI to keep the security compliance in check. Here's some of the things that we do/have that make us the most secure platform. OTP(Verification Code) based verification for critical skill invocations. We want to make sure that every task  autobotAI  can do is verified. For every critical skill invocation like shutting down instance or resource cleanup we require customers provide Verification Code(OTP) that is shown in Alexa App. This makes sure to avoid any unauthorised access to the  autobotAI  skill. It WILL NOT execute any critical tasks until the user is verified. This is a small inconvinience for security untill we have have voice recognition base authentication in place. Here's some of the t
