Although AWS already has redefined the computing and software development industries fundamentally, with its groundbreaking Infrastructure as a Service offerings, it isn’t resting on its laurels.
In the Spotlight
AWS made approximately 30 new product announcements. There probably were two or three times as many partner announcements surrounding the conference.
The new offerings were aimed not only at fortifying AWS’ existing capabilities, but also at dramatically extending its reach into nearly every hot-button tech or software market segment.
- AWS strengthened its analytics offerings with a new Athena serverless query service that promises to make it easy to analyze data directly in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) using standard SQL.
- AWS’ Glue fully managed ETL service will make it easier for users to manage their data sources, prepare the data, and move it between data stores.
- AWS added Amazon Lex, Polly and Rekognition, which will provide building blocks for developers to create voice and text-oriented artificial intelligence applications.
- In the DevOps realm, AWS unveiled Lambda@Edge, which allows users to run their code at CloudFront edge locations without provisioning or managing servers.
- AWS’ new Blox open source software project will permit customers to build custom schedulers and integrate them with third-party schedulers in containers on ECS. The new CodeBuild development tool will enable users to test their code in the cloud.
- X-Ray allows developers to analyze and debug production and distributed applications, such as micro services.
- AWS announced Greengrass, which will enable users to run IoT applications across AWS cloud and local devices using AWS Lambda.
- It also announced Pinpoint, which makes it easy for users to run targeted push notification campaigns to improve the user engagement in mobile apps, while pushing AWS into the user experience world.
- AWS announced a new Shield managed DDoS protection service that safeguards Web applications from attacks, a timely response to the recent service disruption caused by a targeted assault on Dyn last month.
AWS CEO Andrew Jassy introduced the new Snowball Edge petabyte-scale and Snowmobile exabyte-scale data transfer services, which will be delivered via a 45-foot long ruggedized shipping container pulled by a semi-trailer truck! It’s no wonder that Amazon recently mentioned in a financial report that it had become a transportation company.
AWS capped off its laundry list of new offerings with a new Personal Health Dashboard service management portal that will enable users to have greater visibility across all their AWS resources.
