AWS re:Invent: Day 1 Highlights
Day 1 of AWS re:Invent was a good one, with various announcements—we’ve outlined a few below.
PostgreSQL is now in preview for Aurora Serverless. Previously, only MySQL was available. Amazon Aurora Serverless is a deployment option that automatically starts, scales, and shuts down an Amazon Aurora database.
S3 Intelligent-Tiering—a New Amazon S3 Storage Class has been announced. S3 Intelligent-Tiering is a new storage class designed for customers who want to optimise storage costs automatically when data access patterns change, without performance impact or operational overhead.
This is the first cloud object storage class that delivers automatic cost savings by moving data between two access tiers — frequent access and infrequent access — when access patterns change, and is ideal for data with unknown or changing access patterns.
AWS Transfer for SFTP announced. AWS Transfer for SFTP is a fully managed SFTP service for Amazon S3. It enables you to easily move your file transfer workloads that use the Secure Shell File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) to AWS without needing to modify your applications or manage any SFTP servers.
With AWS SFTP, you only pay for the use of the SFTP server endpoint, and data uploaded and downloaded. AWS SFTP is available in AWS Regions worldwide.
