In the digital age, where data is at the heart of every activity, utilizes the advanced technologies offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS) to ensure their security and availability. In this article, we will examine how the use of Event-Driven Architecture (EDA) on the AWS platform enables the automation of backup creation and data replication processes, illustrated by real implementations in project for a company from the logistics industry.

AWS Event-Driven Architecture: What it is and why it matters

Event-Driven Architecture (EDA, AWS Event-Driven Architecture) is a design approach in which communication between various services and system components is initiated by events.

In project execution, the team utilizes EDA to create scalable and flexible data management systems. Thanks to the loose coupling of components, services can communicate and respond to events in real-time, significantly improving efficiency and reducing downtime.

AWS Lambda: Lambda functions for replication and archiving

For one of our major clients in the logistics industry, we developed a Lambda function createBackupAndUploadToS3, which is automatically triggered by events in Amazon S3, such as adding a new file to a bucket. This function automatically creates file backups and transfers them to a “hot” S3 bucket, enhancing the durability and availability of the data.

Amazon S3: S3 Event Notifications, S3 Cross-Region Replication (CRR)

In the implementation for the client, Amazon S3 plays a crucial role in data management. By utilizing S3 Event Notifications, the company automatically triggers specific processes, such as activating Lambda functions, which enables efficient resource management. Additionally, the use of S3 Cross-Region Replication (CRR) allows for data replication across regions, ensuring higher data availability and disaster resilience.

Amazon SQS: Event Queuing

Amazon SQS is crucial in the process of queuing events generated by S3, which are then processed by Lambda functions. We use SQS to buffer events, allowing for efficient and scalable data processing without losing important information.

The Role of AWS EventBridge in replication and archiving

EventBridge is used for orchestrating and automating the processes of data replication and archiving. With AWS EventBridge, events from various sources are easily routed to the appropriate targets, allowing for seamless integration and automation of workflows across the entire AWS infrastructure.

Batch Job: Batch Processing

For processes that require handling large amounts of data, our team uses AWS batch processing services, such as AWS Batch. These batch processes are triggered by events and may involve mass data replication or archiving, significantly enhancing data management.

Practices at AWS Backups Automation and Data Replication

In the project, we effectively utilize Terraform and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to automate key business processes, including the creation of backups and data replication. This not only enhances data security and availability but also optimizes costs. The implementation of these solutions in practice demonstrates that the use of Event-Driven Architecture (EDA) combined with the computational power and flexibility of AWS forms the foundation of a modern, secure, and scalable cloud infrastructure.

The implementation of Event-Driven Architecture in AWS by the developers at is an example of how modern technologies can be used to automate, enhance efficiency, and secure data for our clients, including the logistics industry. Utilizing services such as AWS Lambda, Amazon S3, SQS, EventBridge, and batch processing demonstrates how a comprehensive approach to data management can bring tangible business benefits.
