AWS piles on the machine learning services

Amazon Unveils 'Immutable' Quantum Ledger Database Product

AWS Security Hub is a central place to manage security and compliance across an AWS environment so that customers can quickly see their AWS security and compliance state in one comprehensive view. Still, some customers have certain workloads that will likely need to remain on-premises for several years such as applications that are latency sensitive and need to be in close proximity to on-premises assets. This integration, together with the addition of Dome9 to the CloudGuard portfolio, following its recent acquisition by Check Point, allows enterprises to access multi-layered security and almost continuous compliance capabilities from the central console of AWS Security Hub.

AWS Outposts solves these challenges by delivering racks of AWS compute and storage, with the ability to run services like Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) on this AWS-designed infrastructure. Amazon Managed Blockchain takes care of the rest, creating a blockchain network that can span multiple AWS accounts with multiple nodes per member, and configuring software, security, and network settings.

Outposts will be sold on an opex basis, so they'll also match the procurement experience of the full AWS cloud.

In addition to its new managed ledger database, Amazon also revealed that it had created its own managed blockchain service called AWS Managed Blockchain which also works with QLDB. Additionally, the Splunk integration enables serverless automation to gather findings from AWS Security Hub sending them to a HTTP Event Collector in the Splunk platform.

During his developer-oriented keynote Amazon CTO Werner Vogels announced that AWS would offer a managed version of that service, which removes a lot of the heavy lifting companies need to do to get Kafka working in their apps. "So we started with what our customers were asking for and worked backwards".

Variant 1: In this the VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts will permit you to continue using the same VMware control plane and APIs for running your infrastructure.

That fact may be as important a motivator for Outposts' debut as customer demand.

"VMware Cloud on AWS broke the barriers between the data center and the cloud by combining the best of the private cloud and public cloud in the AWS cloud", said Pat Gelsinger, chief executive officer, VMware.

"Building a scalable blockchain network with existing technologies is just too hard today, and that's why customers pay expensive consultants to help them".

Jassy also announced a new AWS Marketplace for machine learning. Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth learns from these annotations in real time and can automatically apply labels to much of the remaining dataset, reducing the need for human review. Amazon Personalize can make recommendations, personalise search results, and segment customers for direct and personalised marketing through email or push notifications.

Next week developers will be able to purchase the new Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) GPU, which includes eight NVIDIA V100 GPUs, 32GB GPU memory, fast NVMe storage, 96 Intel "Skylake" vCPUs, and 100Gbps networking, the new P3dn.24xl instances are the most powerful machine learning training processors available in the cloud, allowing developers to train models with more data in less time.
