At the end of this week, I’m flying to Seattle to take part in the AWS Serverless Innovation Day. Along with many customers and colleagues from AWS, we are going to be live on May 17 at a virtual free event. During the AWS Serverless Innovation Day we will share best practices related to building event-driven applications and using serverless functions and containers. Get a calendar reminder and check the full agenda at the event site.
Last Week’s Launches
Here are some launches that got my attention during the previous week.
New Local Zones in Auckland – AWS Local Zones allow you to deliver applications that require single-digit millisecond latency or local data processing. Starting last week, AWS Local Zones is available in Auckland, New Zealand.
AWS User Notifications – Channy wrote an article explaining how you can view and configure notifications for your AWS account. In addition to the AWS Management Console notifications, the AWS Console Mobile Application now allows you to create and receive actionable push notifications when a resource requires your attention.
AWS SimSpace Weaver – Last reInvent, we launched AWS SimSpace Weaver, a fully managed compute service that helps you deploy large spatial simulations in the cloud. Starting last week, AWS SimSpace Weaver allows you to save the state of the simulations at a specific point in time.
AWS Security Hub – Added four new integration partners to help customers with their cloud security posture monitoring, and now it provides detailed tracking of finding changes with the finding history feature. This last feature provides an immutable trail of changes to get more visibility into the changes made to your findings.
AWS Compute Optimizer – AWS Compute Optimizer supports inferred workload type filtering on Amazon EC2 instance recommendations and automatically detects the applications that might run on your AWS resources. Now AWS Compute Optimizer supports filtering your rightsizing recommendation by tags and identifies and filters Microsoft SQL Server workloads as an inferred workload type.
AWS AppSync– Now AWS AppSync GraphQL APIs support Private API. With Private APIs, you can now create GraphQL APIs that can only be accessed from your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC).
