In this episode of AWS TechChat we cover the main keynote of re:Invent 2019 by Andy Jassy, AWS CEO, with a ton of announcements for all.
We started the show with a new range of Arm-based processors based on AWS new Arm chip - M6g, C6g and R6g making that price to performance ration even more attractive. We continue to share the announcements that we made:
Amazon Braket – A fully managed service that allows scientists, researchers, and developers to begin experimenting with computers from multiple quantum hardware providers in a single place.
AWS Fargate has made its way to Amazon EKS, you can now launch EKS containers as a Fargate launch type.
Amazon EC2 instance for inference - the Amazon EC2 Inf1, powered by our own custom silicon Inferentia chips has gone GA.
AWS Fargate Spot is a new capability on AWS Fargate that can run interruption tolerant Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) Tasks at up to a 70% discount off the Fargate price.
AWS Outposts has gone GA, so if you need hybrid cloud with the same AWS feeling it is now available. If you do not want to manage your Outpost, you can leverage a Local Zone. The first Local Zone in Los Angeles is available now and you can start using it today.
AWS Wavelength brings local compute to the 5G Edge.
Provisioned Concurrency for AWS Lambda Functions ensure cold starts issue and sudden traffic spikes do not impact latent sensitive operations.
Amazon S3 Access Points makes it simple to manage access at scale for applications using shared data sets on S3.
Amazon Sagemaker bore the brunt of many announcements:
- Amazon Sagemaker Studio, your machine learning Integrated Development Environment in the cloud.
- Amazon Sagemaker Notebooks bringing one click Jupyter notebooks to AWS.
- Amazon Sagemaker Model Monitor automatically detects concept drift in deployed models.
- Amazon Sagamaker Autopilot automatically creating your machine learning models but with transparency.
Amazon CodeGuru is a new machine learning service for automated code reviews and application performance recommendations.
Amazon Fraud Detector, which is a new machine learning service that makes it easy to identify potentially fraudulent online activities such as online payment fraud and the creation of fake accounts.
Contact Lens for Amazon Connect, bulking out Amazon Connect capabilities, allows you to understand the sentiment, trends, and compliance risks of customer conversations to train agents effectively, replicate successful interactions, and identify crucial company and product feedback.
We are launching in open preview Amazon Managed Apache Cassandra Service (MCS), a scalable, highly available, and managed Apache Cassandra-compatible database service.
Amazon Redshift introduces RA3 nodes with managed storage enabling independent compute and storage scaling.
Finally, UltraWarm is a performance-optimized warm storage tier for Amazon Elasticsearch Service. It complements the existing Amazon Elasticsearch hot storage tier by providing less expensive storage for older and less-frequently accessed data while still providing an interactive analytics experience allowing up to 3PB per cluster.
