News from the AWS world
As every month, the world of Amazon Web Services gets new products and features. This month we'd like to inform you about a new class of S3 Storage - Glacier Deep Archive - designed for storing large amounts of data similar to the "usual" Glacier but at 75% of the price and available within 12 hours; the Single Sign-On service expands its coverage to new regions; Open Distro for Elasticsearch, as the name suggests, combines Elsticsearch, a distributed and document-oriented search and analysis engine used for real-time log analysis and monitoring and Kibana, an advanced data visualization system, making them available in the form of RPM packages and Docker containers (it is not a fork of the two projects: the contributions are pushed on the upstream channel); RedShift now includes an automatic concurrence scaling function in the event of activity bursts; Direct Connect is updated with a new console that allows you to have services in different Regions (excluding China) and access them from a single point; the SNS notification service now includes 5 new languages, including Italian; regarding containers, we point out that EKS (Elastic Container Services for Kubernetes) supports Windows Server workloads, although in tech preview mode. The new Deep Learning Containers are containers with pre-installed applications for programmed learning activities (TensorFlow, Apache MXNet and PyTorch ).
