AWS re:Invent: Day 3 highlights
We’ve outlined the most exciting announcements to come out of Day 3 at re:Invent below:
Amazon Forecast—a fully managed deep learning service for time-series forecasting has been announced. Amazon Forecast packages AWS’ years of experience in building and operating scalable, highly accurate forecasting technology into an easy-to-use and fully-managed service.
You can use Amazon Forecast to generate predictions on time-series data to estimate operational metrics (web traffic to servers, AWS usage), business metrics, resource requirements, and more.
Also announced was Amazon Personalize—a fully-managed service, that puts personalisation and recommendation in the hands of developers with little machine learning experience.
Amazon DynamoDB on-demand was also announced. This is a flexible new billing option for DynamoDB capable of serving thousands of requests per second without capacity planning. DynamoDB on-demand offers simple pay-per-request pricing for read and write requests so that you only pay for what you use, making it easy to balance costs and performance.
Amazon CloudWatch Logs Insights, a fully managed service that is designed to work at cloud scale, with no setup or maintenance required, was also revealed. This service ploughs through massive logs in seconds, and gives you fast, interactive queries and visualisations.
Finally, AWS App Mesh was made available. AWS App Mesh is a service mesh that allows you to easily monitor and control communications across microservices applications.
