Mit Amazon SES können Sie jetzt einer E-Mail-Identität einen Konfigurationssatz zuweisen

Mit Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) können Sie nun einer E-Mail-Identität, wie z. B. einer bestimmten E-Mail-Domäne oder einer einzelnen E-Mail-Adresse, einen Konfigurationssatz zuweisen. Dadurch können die Regeln aus dem Konfigurationssatz auf alle E-Mails angewendet werden, die von dieser E-Mail-Identität aus gesendet werden. Konfigurationssätze sind eine Gruppierung von Regeln, die es Kunden ermöglichen, Öffnungs-, Klick-, Sende-, Zustellungs-, Bounce- und Beschwerdeereignisse von gesendeten E-Mails zu veröffentlichen. Sie werden auch verwendet, um das Senden von Ergebnissen aus IP-Adresspools zu organisieren. So können Kunden beispielsweise einen Pool dedizierter IP-Adressen für den Versand von Marketingkommunikation und einen anderen für den Versand von Transaktions-E-Mails zuordnen.

Building the digital factory with SAP on Google Cloud

Manufacturers today face challenges on many fronts: increasingly demanding customer expectations, higher costs, sustainability concerns, and disruption—most recently and dramatically due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. But data can help companies navigate their way through the obstacle course of modern manufacturing. Manufacturing generates petabytes of useful data that can improve production yields, avert problems, and spot opportunities. But this data is only as useful as their ability to analyze and use it to make decisions. SAP customers need to merge their enterprise data with machine and IoT data to inform more insightful business intelligence, feed advanced automation, and build more innovative Industry 4.0 solutions.How? By integrating SAP’s enterprise applications with Google Cloud’s artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and data analytics capabilities. Google Cloud simplifies SAP deployment and offers a suite of applications that integrate with and enhance SAP. Manufacturers can bring together their operational and business data at scale to build an intelligent, connected digital factory. Here are just a few ways Google Cloud brings greater value to your organization’s SAP enterprise applications:Cloud migration with minimal risk: SAP deployments can be complex, so moving to the cloud can seem daunting. Google Cloud’s tools and services help simplify and streamline the process with security capabilities and migration options. Manufacturers can take advantage of Google Cloud’s SAP-specific automated templates to deploy more quickly, consolidate SAP data within the cloud, and shrink time to value for AI- and ML-generated insights. TheCloud Acceleration Program for SAP customers leverages our network of partners with pre-built migration solutions and applications to make cloud transitions less risky and more efficient.Data management, solved: Running SAP on Google Cloud gives manufacturers massive and highly flexible data storage without the cost of buying or maintaining infrastructure. Manufacturers can quickly gain fresh insight—not only from historic data, but also from real-time production, quality, and business data as well.Multiple paths to the cloud: There are a lot of reasons to keep running legacy on-premises systems and multiple cloud deployments, including regulatory requirements and industry-specific needs. Manufacturers that rely on SAP for their core operations can take advantage of Google Cloud’s AI, ML, and analytics wherever their applications reside. Google Cloud’s hybrid and multicloud capabilities give manufacturers the strength of multiple cloud platforms, on-premises solutions, legacy providers, and a diversity of hardware. SAP manufacturers such as Kaeser Kompressoren are also taking advantage ofAnthos, an application platform that lets them easily migrate and modernize  legacy applications to the cloud, build new applications securely while staying in compliance, and gather and analyze their data. Rich data integration: Manufacturers can build their digital factory from the ground up using Google Cloud’s API toolkit. By consolidating data signals from tools across the Google Cloud portfolio, such as web search data, weather, maps, shopping, and more, companies can gain insight into production planning, customer needs, and other business processes. This includes AutoML Vision capabilities that allow SAP customers to automate visual inspection, identify defects early and reduce costs.  Intelligent analytics: Google BigQuery allows manufacturers to quickly analyze  large amounts of data from a variety of sources, including SAP systems, production facilities, data lakes, sensors, and more to make more informed decisions. Manufacturers can train customized ML models for accurate forecasts withCloud AutoML, which uses machine learning to build data-driven predictive maintenance models. With AI-driven demand forecasts, businesses are able to reduce production delays, improve yield at their facilities, and free up working capital.Accelerated innovation: Package your backend SAP data and functionality as API products using Google Cloud’s Apigee API management tool. Use these rich and valuable API products with AppSheet to allow non-developers to build innovative applications faster without coding.Southwire takes the first step in its tech evolution with SAP on Google Cloud Southwire, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of wire and cable, tools and components, had a comprehensive plan to overhaul its SAP environment consisting of three key elements: upgrade the SAP environment to take advantage of the latest functionality; deploy SAP Business Warehouse on SAP HANA to accelerate reporting; and upgrade to the latest version of SAP Process Orchestration—an essential component that touches key manufacturing interfaces in all Southwire facilities.“We wanted to be on a platform for SAP that was flexible, scalable, and secure; that we could count on to get up and running quickly,” says Dan Stuart, Senior Vice President of IT Services at Southwire. “We chose Google Cloud not only for those reasons, but also because we recognize that Google has other assets that we may be able to take advantage of down the line, such as technologies like artificial intelligence. There’s no shortage of areas where we think Google Cloud will come into play, and we intend to look at these things with an open mind to understand how we can leverage current investments to take our organization where we want to go.”Getting the most value from manufacturing data In order to maximize the value of their data, it’s not enough for today’s manufacturers to connect disparate data streams. They must also extract insight, forecast accurately, and drive intelligent decisions. By running SAP on Google Cloud, manufacturers gain the best of both worlds: advanced digital manufacturing process control and ML and AI-driven analytics and automation.To learn more about how Google Cloud can help your manufacturing operation leverage rich data to compete in Industry 4.0, read SAP on Google Cloud for Manufacturing, andwatch this video.Related ArticleRead Article

Opening up Google's Windows management tools

Managing a global fleet of Windows desktops, laptops, and servers for Google’s internal teams can be tricky, with a constant stream of new tools, high expectations, and stringent organizational needs for secure, code-based, scalable administration. Add in a globally distributed business and extended work-from-home requirements, and you have a recipe for potential trouble.Today we’d like to walk you through some of the tools that the Windows Operations (WinOps) team uses at Google, and why we made (and open-sourced) them. Our team is constantly working to improve the process we use to manage our client fleet of laptops and desktops, and we’ve spent the past several years building open source, infrastructure-as-code tools to do just that. Now that we’re all working from home, these choices have enabled us to keep operating at scale remotely. Let’s dig into a few common Windows administrative challenges and how our open tools can help.Challenges with scaleWhen you manage Windows in a large, globally distributed business environment, problems of scalability are front and center. Many popular administrative tools are GUI-based, which makes them easy to learn but difficult to scale and integrate. An administrator is often limited to the functionality built into the product by its vendor. Many times, core management suites lack qualities that we would consider critical in a reliable production environment, including the ability to: Peer review edits and to roll changes backward and forward on demand Implement platform testing, with support for automation pipelines Integrate seamlessly with tooling that also manages our other major platforms Because they rely on explicit network-level access, many of these products also depend heavily on a well defined corporate network, with clear distinctions between inside and outside .At Google, we’ve been rethinking the way we manage Windows to address these limitations. We have built several tools that have helped us scale our environment globally and enabled us to consistently support Google employees, even when major unexpected events happen.Open source products are increasingly a key to our success. With the right knowledge and investment, open source tools can be extended and tailored to our environment in ways other applications simply can’t. Our designs also focus heavily on configuration as code, rather than user interfaces: Code-based infrastructure provides optimal integration with other internal systems, and enables us to manage our fleet in ways that are audited, peer reviewed, and thoroughly tested. Finally, the principles of the BeyondCorp model dictate that our management layer operates from anywhere in the world, rather than only inside the company’s private network.Let’s dig into some of these tools, organized by what they help us get done.Prepping Windows devicesGlazier, a tool for imaging, marked our team’s first foray into open source. This Python-based tool is at the core of our Windows device preparation process. It focuses on text-based configuration, which we can manage using a version control system. Much like code, we can use the flexible format to write automated tests for our configuration files, and trivially roll our deployments back and forward. File distribution is based around HTTPS, making it globally scalable and easy to proxy. Glazier supports modular actions (such as installing host certificates or gathering installation metrics), making it simple to extend with new capabilities over time as our environment changes.Secure, modular imaging with Glazier helps prepare devicesTraditional imaging tends to rely heavily on network trust and presence inside a secure perimeter. Systems like PXE, Active Directory, Group Policy, and System Center Configuration Manager require you to either set up a device on a trusted network segment or have sensitive infrastructure exposed to the open internet. The Fresnel project addressed these limitations by making it possible to deliver boot media securely to our employees, anywhere in the world. We then integrated it with Glazier, enabling our imaging process to obtain critical files required to bootstrap an image from any network. The result was an imaging process that could be started and completed securely from anywhere, on any network, which aligns with our broader BeyondCorp security model. Fresnel enables imaging from any network in the worldThe remote imaging and provisioning process included several other network trust dependencies that we had to resolve. Puppet provides the basis of our configuration management stack, while software delivery now leverages GooGet, an open source repository platform for Windows. GooGet’s open package format lends itself well to automation, while its simple, APT-like distribution mechanism is able to scale our package deployments globally. For both Puppet and GooGet the underlying use of HTTPS provides security and accessibility from any network. We also utilize OSQuery as a means of collecting distributed host state and inventory.GooGet helps us automate package distribution and deploymentOur infrastructure still has dependencies on classic Active Directory (AD), and the domain join process was a particularly unique challenge for hosts that do not bootstrap from a trusted network. This led to the Splice project, which uses the Windows offline domain join API and Google Cloud services to enable domain joining from any network. Splice enables us to apply flexible business logic to the traditionally rigid domain join process. With the ability to implement custom authentication and authorization models, host inventory checks, and naming rules not typically available in AD environments, this project has given us the flexibility to extend our domain well beyond the classic network perimeter.Splice helps us join new devices onto our Active Directory domain from anywhereMaintaining our fleetDeployment is only the beginning of the device lifecycle; we also need to be able to manage our active fleet and keep it secure.The Windows internal update mechanism is generally sufficient to keep the operating system patched, but we also wanted to be able to exercise some control over updates hitting our fleet. Specifically, we need the ability to rapidly deploy a critical update, or to postpone installing a problematic one. Enter Cabbie, a Windows service that builds upon Windows APIs to provide an additional management layer for patching. Cabbie gives us centralized control over the update agent on each machine in our fleet using our existing configuration management stack.Centralized patch control using configuration managementWe also have Windows servers to manage, and these hosts present unique challenges, distinct from those we face with our client fleet. One such challenge is how to schedule routine maintenance in a way that’s easily configurable, automated, and can be integrated with our various agents like Cabbie. This led to Aukera, a simple yet flexible service for defining recurring maintenance windows, establishing periods where a device can safely perform one or more automated activities that might otherwise be disruptive.Building for the futureOur team was fortunate to have started  many of these projects well before the Spring of 2020, when many of us had to abruptly leave our offices behind. This was due, in part, to embracing the idea of building a Windows fleet for the future: one where every network is part of our company network. Whether our users are working at a business office, from home, or on a virtual machine in a Cloud data center, our tools must be flexible, scalable, reliable, and manageable to meet their needs.Most of the challenges we’ve discussed here are not unique to Google. Companies of all shapes and sizes can benefit from increasing security, scalability, and flexibility in their networks. Our goal in opening up these projects, and sharing the principles behind them, is to assist our peers in the Windows community to build stronger solutions for their own businesses.To learn more about our wider fleet management strategy and operations, read our “Fleet Management at Scale” white paper.
