Episode 65 - November 2019 --> January 2020 Tech Round-up - Part 1

In this Episode of AWS TechChat, I cover some of the missed but very important updates that occurred in the last few months (November 2019 to January 2020) whilst we embraced re:Invent 2019. The show starts with the introduction of AWS Lambda Destinations. It’s a new feature of Lambda that provides visibility into a Lambda functions invocation and routes the execution results to AWS services, which simplifying event-driven applications when a function is invoked asynchronously, I pivot to a raft of EC2 updates, starting with some house keeping with longer Amazon EC2 Resource IDs. From now until the end of April 2020, you can test your systems with the longer format and opt in when you are ready but after April 2020. All new resources will be created with longer resource IDs by default. It applies only to new resources and i encourage you test out before April 2020. Amazon ElastiCache and Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) are now having new Amazon EC2 instance types available for you. Saving you money and increasing performance. I also touch on how the credit system works on our T instances. Next, I introduce an entirely new service - AWS Data Exchange, which is a new service that makes it easy to securely find, subscribe to, and use third-party data in the cloud. Before jumping in to five FSx for Windows updates around De-Duplication, Encryption, PowerShell, Smaller Volume Sizes and File Share Witnesses for SQL, I talk about Amazon GuardDuty. You can now export findings from across regions and also export findings from all associated member accounts and all AWS regions to a single S3 bucket. To close out the show, I share a unique but important update on Amazon Route53. It now supports overlapping name spaces, simplifying complex AWS accounts Speakers: Shane Baldacchino - Solutions Architect, ANZ, AWS Resources: Introducing AWS Lambda Destinations https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/compute/introducing-aws-lambda-destinations/ Longer Format Resource IDs are Now Available in Amazon EC2 https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2019/11/longer-format-resource-ids-are-now-available-in-amazon-ec2/ Amazon ElastiCache now supports T3-Standard cache nodes https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2019/11/amazon-elasticache-now-supports-t3-standard-cache-nodes/ RDS New Instance Types https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2019/11/amazon-rds-for-sql-server-now-supports-additional-instance-sizes/ Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling Now Supports Maximum Instance Lifetime https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2019/11/amazon-ec2-auto-scaling-supports-max-instance-lifetime Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling Now Supports Instance Weighting https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2019/11/amazon-ec2-auto-scaling-supports-instance-weighting/ Introducing AWS Data Exchange https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2019/11/introducing-aws-data-exchange/ Amazon GuardDuty Supports Exporting Findings to an Amazon S3 Bucket https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2019/11/amazon-guardduty-supports-exporting-findings-to-an-amazon-s3-bucket/ Amazon FSx for Windows File Server now supports Data Deduplication, reducing storage costs by 50-60% for general file shares https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2019/11/amazon-fsx-windows-file-server-supports-data-deduplication-reducing-storage-costs/ Amazon Route 53 Now Supports Overlapping Namespaces For Private Hosted Zones https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2019/11/amazon-route-53-now-supports-overlapping-namespaces-for-private-hosted-zones/ AWS Events: AWS Builders Online Series https://aws.amazon.com/events/builders-online-series/ AWS Innovate AIML Edition https://aws.amazon.com/events/aws-innovate/machine-learning/ AWS Innovate DeepRacer Challenge https://aws.amazon.com/events/aws-innovate/machine-learning/deepracer/
