That’s a wrap for re:Invent 2018! Whilst Arjen will no doubt be providing us with the low down on all things containers in due course, I’ve hijacked his excellent blog to bring you a short guest post on serverless database news.
At the APN Ambassador day during re:Invent I gave a lightning talk about Fargate that went a bit deeper than my previous talks.
I'm writing this during a 14 hour flight to re:Invent, so once again this is very AWS focused. Several new releases this week include the Route 53 Resolver for Hybris Clouds, the Resource Access Manager, and Predictive Scaling for EC2.
CloudFormation Macros were introduced recently, and they add a lot of power. In this article I want to take a look at how you can build and test one of these.
In October I gave a Serverless Containers Deep Dive talk at several events, which focused on AWS Fargate. This article is a written version of these presentations, and also contains the recording of when I repeated this talk at the Melbourne AWS User Group.
Clearly we're in the lead up to re:Invent as AWS has started releasing the big features that didn't make the cut. Today I'll focus on CloudFormation Drift Detection, Multiple Instance Types in AutoScaling Groups, and Amazon Corretto.
The lead up to re:Invent has started, so we're getting a lot of announcements coming out of AWS. Two very interesting ones last week are the introduction of AMD instance types and Inspector's agentless network assessment.
IBM buys the biggest open source company in the world, and GitHub had a long outage.
Every day AWS releases features that by themselves are often not all that impressive. But when taken together paint an interesting picture of what happens to services. So, let's see what that means this month in terms of love for (traditional) databases as well as containers and Lambda.
On a day where GitHub is having a major outage, what better subject to write about than new GitHub features? So today's subject is the new GitHub Actions and Suggested Changes introduced at GitHub Universe last week.
Cloudflare introduces Encrypted SNI, AWS has a number of new Aurora features, and Azure comes out with a service to let you build your VM Images.
Once again I have some catching up to do, and as usual that means I'll first focus on AWS announcements. Two very powerful new tools were released with CloudFormation Macros and the Session Manager. In addition Fargate now supports scheduled tasks.
You can now use Secure String values from the Parameter Store in CloudFormation and ECS supports Docker volumes. And Twitter limits the abilities of third-party clients.
A late and limited weekly note, focused only on the general availability of Serverless Aurora for MySQL.
Istio reaches 1.0 and AWS releases the AWS CDK.
