Amazon Unveils 'Immutable' Quantum Ledger Database Product

AWS Outposts

The service provides customers with an append-only, fixed journal that tracks the history of all changes made to it.

Amazon Web Services is launching a self-driving race vehicle, AWS DeepRacer, that you can buy for $400 next year.

Using AWS Lake Formation, customers simply define the data sources they wish to ingest and then select from a prescribed list of data access and security policies to apply, removing the need to define and enforce policies across their analytics applications. The company is also releasing a minimum viable cloud framework for AWS to help clients establish foundational infrastructure.

AWS caters to customers who want to build from the ground up, while also adding services over time like AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Amazon Lightsail, and Amazon SageMaker that are created to serve the needs of this second type of builder.

Announced at AWS re:Invent 2018, AWS Outposts is created to bring AWS cloud hardware on-premises i.e.to customer's own data centers. This integration, together with the addition of Dome9 to the CloudGuard portfolio, following its recent acquisition by Check Point, allows enterprises to access multi-layered security and almost continuous compliance capabilities from the central console of AWS Security Hub.

"Our new offerings, VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts and VMware Cloud Foundation for EC2, further extend VMware's vision for consistent infrastructure and consistent operations from the data center to the cloud to the edge", said Gelsinger.

Variant 1: In this the VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts will permit you to continue using the same VMware control plane and APIs for running your infrastructure.

"Inferentia will be a very high-throughput, low-latency, sustained-performance very cost-effective processor", AWS CEO Andy Jassy explained during the announcement.

Missing the mark with a forecast can have a significant impact, such as being unable to meet customer demand or significantly over-spending.

Analysts said the AWS/VMware services are a step in the right direction for customers blending public and private-cloud entities.

AWS's new robotics service, which provides a simulation platform that integrates well with SageMaker RL.

"Building a scalable blockchain network with existing technologies is just too hard today, and that's why customers pay expensive consultants to help them", said Rahul Pathak, General Manager, Amazon Blockchain at AWS.

SageMaker "Ground Truth" capability produces high-quality labelled training data; SageMaker RL delivers Cloud's first managed service for reinforcement learning algorithms and simulators; and a new ML Marketplace offers more than 150 new models and algorithms to developers via SageMaker.

The new AWS-Optimized TensorFlow offering, now generally available, allows TensorFlow jobs to be automatically scaled and balanced across multiple GPU-powered EC2 nodes.

For over 12 years, Amazon Web Services has been the world's most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform.

AWS said it has already launched more than 200 machine learning capabilities in the past 12 months.

VMware is majority owned by Dell and a subsidiary of Dell Technologies.
