Welcome to issue number 87 of
. Last Week in AWS
For those of you are new to this newsletter, this isn’t the typical format. That returns next week.
Last week had a lot of announcements, which led to Ana Visneski challenging me:
Ana is about to learn why people don’t generally challenge me with such things. If you haven’t heard the song before, you should take the time to review the old Animaniacs song “
The Nations of the World” before proceeding– because here we go. The Releases of re:Invent
ALB for Lambda, EFS speaks Samba VMware can run RDS Rekognition’s still spelled wrong Custom translation fits this song Doubled IOPs come to EBS
Faster Snowballs: go get them Outposts for your on-prem To get one you’re going to beg One thing I can say Instance family “a” They won’t cost you an ARM and a leg
Timestream: future and past ML Predict in Forecast Can tell you when it will be hot Giraffes come to IoT S3 speaks SFTP Better recommendations in Spot
It’s not much fun (Hi us-east–1) To find your environment’s currently broken Thanks for their support Here’s an article (short) On how to move it to DigitalOcean.
Tagging lightsail instances Elastic inferences Can help bring GPUs on demand Elemental and IoT Both sound the same to me EFS Infrequent Access is grand
Instances C5n Comprehend for Medicine Intelligent tiering arrives for S3 ML Chip Inferentia Helps treat Grandpa’s dementia Both sound like diagnoses to me
Custom keyed KMS, Lustre for EFS Cost Explorer gets better recommendation reports Quicksight dashboardsshow your failings Better spot autoscaling Lambda finally gets Ruby support
If your CD process Is really obnoxious ThoughtWorks’s GoCD can make it much better WIthout seeming disingenuous Thanks to them for their continuous Ongoing support of this newsletter.
“This must be annoying
You can’t be enjoying Writing songs like this; it can’t be fun?” You’re wrong: Check the Snarkive Glacier deep archive Oh yeah, we’re not even half done.
speaks S3 Don’t say “AMI” as “ah-mee” Otherwise I will think you’re a tool re:Play was a nightclub And now Security Hub Shows you just how you were a fool.
group traces Several more marketplaces Where you can sell containers, ML, and private AMIs For a second time, If this doesn’t rhyme Then you might want to think about why.
It would be a slight If I didn’t highlight Cloudability’s support; they help with cloud finance AWS bills are hairy But they’re far less scary When you know what they will be in advance.
QLDB has its perks But explaining how it works Turned a session hall into a math room DeepRacer makes sense It’s just a mobile DeepLens That can follow you into the bathroom
become EC2 DynamoDB transactions are new On-demand Dynamo pricing is great Lambda layers is fine And Lambda custom runtimes Let you write code in a language you hate.
Aurora Postgres Serverless Makes Oracle nervous Now in beta, it’s passing the brass pole If you say with fervor “Severless runs on servers” You’re not clever, you’re being an asshole
Firecracker’s exciting If open source seems inviting Feel free to submit a PR While not quite as noble Accelerator (it’s global) Make things far away seem not to be quite as far
DataSync, Transit Gateway While both things that I hate, may Help you along your cloud journey S3 Object locks check the compliance box Is it for you? Please consult your attorney.
SageMaker Neo App Mesh deprecates Istio DeepRacer’s both a league and a car IoT Devices for testing Amplify Console’s investing In the third redesign we’ve seen so far.
Resource mapping’s not crappy Log Insights makes analysis snappy License Manager if your vendors are zealous ML Insights give extracts And their new service Textract Has such a bad name that I’m jealous
An ML tie-breaker
Because now SageMaker Has Ground Truth, Marketplace, and RL “ Managed BlockChain” Those people drive me insane I’m pretty sure that I’m dead and in hell
Batch Operations Frees up concentration From having to manage S3 IOT Service Delivers Within thirty minutes If it doesn’t the next event’s free
Managed Kafka is hot Robomaker is not (That may because I’m a yuppie) Model training goes deep Put EC2 nodes to sleep Just like you would an unwanted puppy
can query And that is just scary Enough to turn DBAs’ hands cold and clammy And for the third time “AMI” will not rhyme So we need a CloudFront Edge POP in Miami
If you use
Landing Zone It’s a bit error prone So Control Tower helps us all get there Who the hell is in charge Of naming “ p3dn.24xlarge” That’s not a name; it’s a dump of its firmware
They just launched
Lake Formation Satellites use Ground Station Once they’ve reached orbit via rockets That completes our tour Oh wait there’s one more: API Gateway now works with WebSockets
…and that’s what happened
