AWS Step Functions Distributed Map

Step Functions Distributed Map – A Serverless Solution for Large-Scale Parallel Data Processing

I am excited to announce the availability of a distributed map for AWS Step Functions. This flow extends support for orchestrating large-scale parallel workloads such as the on-demand processing of semi-structured data. Step Function’s map state executes the same processing steps for multiple entries in a dataset. The existing map state is limited to 40 […]

VPC Lattice logical architecture.

Introducing VPC Lattice – Simplify Networking for Service-to-Service Communication (Preview)

Modern applications are built using modular and distributed components. Each component is a service that implements its own subset of functionalities. To make these services communicate with each other, you need a way to let them discover where they are, authorize access, and route traffic. When troubleshooting issues, you need to keep communication configurations under […]

New AWS SimSpace Weaver–Run Large-Scale Spatial Simulations in the Cloud

Today, we’re announcing AWS SimSpace Weaver, a new compute service to run real-time spatial simulations in the cloud and at scale. With SimSpace Weaver, simulation developers are no longer limited by the compute and memory of their hardware. Organizations run simulations on situations that are rare, dangerous, or very expensive to test in the real […]

New – Amazon EC2 Hpc6id Instances Optimized for High Performance Computing

We have given you the flexibility and ability to run the largest and most complex high performance computing (HPC) workloads with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances that feature enhanced networking like C5n, C6gn, R5n, M5n, and our recently launched HPC instances Hpc6a. We heard feedback from customers asking us to deliver more options to support […]

New – Accelerate Your Lambda Functions with Lambda SnapStart

Our customers tell me that they love AWS Lambda for many reasons. On the development side they appreciate the simple programming model and ease with which their functions can make use of other AWS services. On the operations side they benefit from the ability to build powerful applications that can respond quickly to changing usage […]

Amazon Inspector Now Scans AWS Lambda Functions for Vulnerabilities

Amazon Inspector is a vulnerability management service that continually scans workloads across Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, container images living in Amazon Elastic Container Registry (Amazon ECR), and, starting today, AWS Lambda functions and Lambda layers. Until today, customers that wanted to analyze their mixed workloads (including EC2 instances, container images, and Lambda […]

New – ENA Express: Improved Network Latency and Per-Flow Performance on EC2

We know that you can always make great use of all available network bandwidth and network performance, and have done our best to supply it to you. Over the years, network bandwidth has grown from the 250 Mbps on the original m1 instance to 200 Gbps on the newest m6in instances. In addition to raw […]

New General Purpose, Compute Optimized, and Memory-Optimized Amazon EC2 Instances with Higher Packet-Processing Performance

Today I would like to tell you about the next generation of Intel-powered general purpose, compute-optimized, and memory-optimized instances. All three of these instance families are powered by 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors (Ice Lake) running at 3.5 GHz, and are designed to support your data-intensive workloads with up to 200 Gbps of network […]
