The latest features coming to AWS

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is at the cutting edge of cloud services platforms, with an incredibly powerful array of web tools to help businesses grow. There are some exciting new AWS machine learning and cloud computing features coming our way in 2018 which affect efficiency, security, and usability. Perhaps most notably, the new AWS Lambda service lets you run code without the need to manage your own servers. Your code runs on the cloud only when you need it, and you only pay for when it’s actually used. This means the Amazon cloud computing system can execute your code without you needing to manage any servers, no matter what the scale of your project is.

The new Amazon Blockchain Templates

Amazon is venturing into the exciting new field of blockchain with its new Amazon Blockchain Templates. Developed and popularized as the technology behind Bitcoin, the blockchain is a decentralized digital ledger that can be used to store information in a way that is irreversible and incorruptible—when something is logged into the blockchain, it’s there for good. This technology has massive potential that is only just being explored, and the new Amazon Blockchain Templates has shown that Amazon is serious about this new tech. The Amazon Blockchain Template serves as an on-ramp to the decentralized ledger, with a wide range of applications.

AWS Machine Learning

The AWS Machine Learning platform aims to make machine learning more accessible to developers and researchers. In fact, more machine learning models are built using AWS Machine Learning than on any other platform. The AWS DeepLens is the world’s first machine learning enabled video camera for developers, and it interacts seamlessly with SageMaker and other AWS machine learning services. Amazon knows a lot about machine learning—from drone delivery to Alexa, they’ve done extensive development in the field, and they’re keen to share some of their knowledge.

AWS security

Another big development in 2018 from Amazon is the introduction of various security technologies. AWS now encrypts your data while it’s in transit across the cloud, and it keeps your stored data encrypted as well. The new AWS Secrets Managers helps you better manage sensitive information such as password and database entries. The AWS Firewall manager helps security teams more easily handle multi-faceted web application systems across multiple AWS accounts. These three features show that Amazon has taken a strong stand when it comes to web security and has made it a priority of their service.
