Better Developer Tools for Container Continuous Delivery

The AWS Developer Tools now offer improved continuous delivery support for the Amazon Container Services. Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) and AWS Fargate now support blue/green deployments via AWS CodeDeploy. Additionally, AWS CodePipeline now supports Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR) as a source provider. Previously, both of these actions required additional steps.


AWS Elemental MediaConnect

AWS Elemental MediaConnect, a reliable, secure, and flexible transport service for live video. Using MediaConnect, broadcasters and content owners can cost-effectively send high-value live content into the cloud, securely transmit it to partners for distribution, and replicate it to multiple destinations around the globe. Build mission-critical live video transport workflows in a fraction of the time and cost of satellite or fiber, with broadcast-grade monitoring to maintain confidence that your video is delivered. MediaConnect combines reliable video transport, highly secure stream sharing, and real-time network traffic and video monitoring that allow you to focus on your content, not your transport infrastructure.


CloudWatch Logs Insights

AWS announced the General Availability of CloudWatch Logs Insights, a fully integrated, interactive, and pay-as-you-go log analytics service for CloudWatch. CloudWatch Logs Insights enables you to explore, analyze, and visualize your logs instantly, allowing you to troubleshoot operational problems with ease. With Logs Insights, you only pay for the queries you run. Logs Insights scales with your log volume and query complexity giving you answers in seconds. In addition, you can publish log-based metrics, create alarms, and correlate logs and metrics together in CloudWatch Dashboards for complete operational visibility.


DynamoDB Support for Transactions

Amazon DynamoDB now offers native, server-side support for transactions, simplifying the developer experience of making coordinated, all-or-nothing changes to multiple items both within and across tables. With support for transactions, developers can extend the scale, performance, and enterprise benefits of DynamoDB to a broader set of mission-critical workloads.


Translate Now Supports Customised Translations

Amazon Translate is a fully managed neural-network based machine translation service that delivers high-quality, real-time, and affordable language translation. Today, we are introducing Custom Terminology, a feature that lets you customise Amazon Translate’s output to use company and domain-specific vocabulary. By uploading and invoking Custom Terminology with translation requests, you can ensure that your brand names, character names, model names, and other unique content get translated exactly the way you define it.


Ground Station

AWS Ground Station eliminates these problems by delivering a global Ground Station as a Service. We provide direct access to AWS services and the AWS Global Infrastructure including our low-latency global fiber network right where your data is downloaded into our AWS Ground Station. This enables you to easily control satellite communications, quickly ingest and process your satellite data, and rapidly integrate that data with your applications and other services running in the AWS Cloud. For example, you can use Amazon S3 to store the downloaded data, Amazon Kinesis Data Streams for managing data ingestion from satellites, Amazon SageMaker for building custom machine learning applications that apply to your data sets, and Amazon EC2 to command and download data from satellites. AWS Ground Station can help you save up to 80% on the cost of your ground station operations by allowing you to pay only for the actual antenna time used, and relying on our global footprint of ground stations to download data when and where you need it, instead of building and operating your own global ground station infrastructure. There are no long-term commitments, and you gain the ability to rapidly scale your satellite communications on-demand when your business needs it.
