AWS re:Invent 2017 new products TLDR/discussion
Peter Kim Frank Nov 29 '17
Amazon released a number of new services today at AWS re:Invent. Feel free to discuss and add your thoughts.
There are two new services that revolve around containerization:
Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is a managed service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install and operate your own Kubernetes clusters. Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
AWS Fargate is a technology for Amazon ECS and EKS* that allows you to run containers without having to manage servers or clusters. With AWS Fargate, you no longer have to provision, configure, and scale clusters of virtual machines to run containers.
Another two services in the deep-learning / ML space:
The world’s first deep learning enabled video camera for developers
AWS DeepLens helps put deep learning in the hands of developers, literally, with a fully programmable video camera, tutorials, code, and pre-trained models designed to expand deep learning skills.
Amazon SageMaker is a fully-managed service that enables developers and data scientists to quickly and easily build, train, and deploy machine learning models at any scale. Amazon SageMaker removes all the barriers that typically slow down developers who want to use machine learning.
And finally there's a new managed database service.
Amazon Neptune is a fast, reliable, fully-managed graph database service that makes it easy to build and run applications that work with highly connected datasets. The core of Amazon Neptune is a purpose-built, high-performance graph database engine optimized for storing billions of relationships and querying the graph with milliseconds latency.
Which of these are you most excited about? Feel free to add your thoughts or post other announcements from today.
