AWS PrivateLink allows AWS users to securely connect to cloud services without exposing those services to the broader Internet. Since its release in 2009, PrivateLink was limited to AWS services using the virtual private cloud service. At the re:Invent conference, taking place in Las Vegas, Amazon has announced support for third-party SaaS services so PrivateLink can be used more broadly.

At this weeks's re:Invent conference, Amazon announced a new service for developers looking to create AR, VR and 3D apps. Sumerian lets developers build realistic virtual environments, populate them with 3D objects and animated characters, and script how they interact with each other and the application’s users.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
When it comes to choosing a cloud computing platform, companies look for solutions that deliver storage, power, and scalability, which is why Amazon Web Services dominates as the world's largest cloud computing platform. Understanding the nuts and bolts of AWS can make you a hot commodity in the job market, and with the AWS Solution Architect Certification Training Bundle, you can get started for over 90 percent off.
Last week, during Microsoft's annual Ignite shindig, the company unveiled the latest version of their database platform SQL Server. SQL Server 2017 adds a bunch of new features as well as performance and compatibility tweaks so that the Windows and Linux versions are more alike than ever before. And, the new platform is also available on AWS' EC2.
Elastic GPUs are GPU resources that can be attached to an Amazon EC2 instance to accelerate the graphics performance of applications. Elastic GPUs come in several different memory capacities and offer the flexibility to choose the right compute, memory, and storage balance for your application. They're best suited for applications that require a small or intermittent amount of additional GPU power.
Splunk's new Insights for AWS Cloud Monitoring provides end-to-end security, operational and cost management insights on AWS. It delivers an analytics-based approach to cloud monitoring and provides end-to-end visibility into a customer’s AWS infrastructure, delivering real-time awareness of performance, health, configuration, security and infrastructure spend.
Few things instill more fear when I think of network architecture and security than thousands of tiny devices collecting and sending data across a network. The Internet of Things is a rising tide that will mean there will be between five and ten devices connected to the Internet for every many, woman and child on the planet before the decade is out. A recent experiment sought to discover whether a serverless architecture was worth exploring when deploying an IoT solution.
As we move away from the era of deploying servers - physical or virtual - in order to run applications, developers need to move towards building applications in different ways. AWS has published a guide on building server less web apps that guides you through the process. Of course, it's all very AWS-centric but it looks like a good place to begin a journey down the road of developing server less apps.
DynamoDB is Amazon’s database platform for those applications where you need a database but aren’t interested in setting up a server and all the other rigmarole that goes with it. DynamoDB uses a provisioned capacity model. You set the amount of read and write capacity required by your applications and change provisioning for your table with an API call or button click in the AWS Management Console. Now, DynamoDB has new settings that will auto scale as your needs change.
Pretty much every week I receive a research report, often sponsored by a large IT vendor, telling me about the IT skills shortage. Most of them are focussed on infosec but today's instalment of the "Great IT Skills Shortage" came from AWS.
At the AWS Summit being held in Auckland, analysis from job site Indeed shows job listings for AWS-related roles has increased by 153% over the last three years. It's time for IT employers to do something about it. There's no IT skills shortage. But I think there's a massive shortfall in career investment by incumbent and prospective employers.
Tracking what's going on in an AWS account is relatively straightforward but things get more complex when you're trying to work across multiple accounts. That can happen when different parts of the business sign up to separate accounts. Jigar Mistry has put together a guide on securely analysing data from one AWS account from another account using EMRFS (Elastic MapReduce File System).
During this morning's keynote address at the AWS Summit, the company's chief architect Glenn Gore spent some time discussing the changes he's seen in the way software is developed. Two things came to mind during that part of the presentation. The nature of what "software development" is has changed significantly and the skills of today's programmers are in flux.
The fact that Amazon controls a vast swath of cloud computing services became dreadfully clear on Wednesday morning when a string of errors brought countless websites to their knees. This consolidation of power is, perhaps suddenly, a very big problem.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers can now buy software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions through the AWS Marketplace. The software on offer runs on a pay-as-you-go consumption model with no recurring costs and services that are used will be billed on a customer's AWS bill. There are a number of SaaS and API products on offer. Here's what you need to know.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a popular public cloud platform for businesses but some companies may be intimidate by its self-service model. To reduce the complexity involved in creating and maintaining AWS servers, Cloudwith.me has created a service to make the whole process easier, especially for smaller organisations. Here's what you need to know.
Open source container platform Docker has kicked off its private beta program for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure. You can already use Docker through the two public cloud platforms but the company has made it easier to deploy Docker Engine on them through tight integration with AWS and Microsoft Azure infrastructure services. Additionally, Docker for Windows and Mac, which was previously in private beta, has now been made publicly available. Here's what you need to know.
