AWS News Blog

Welcome to the new AWS Blog!

You are now reading the newest version of the AWS Blog! After hosting the blog externally for nearly ten years, we decided to “drink our own champagne” (as we often say at Amazon) and move to an AWS-powered environment. I am happy to be able to report that this blog is generated on Amazon EC2 and hosted on Amazon S3.

As you can see, the blog has a fresh, clean design, and it is responsive to boot! As is the case with every part of AWS, we will continue to enhance it in the days and weeks after today’s launch. All 90 of my posts from 2014 are already available on the new blog; the rest will be there shortly.

This new location is the first step in a bigger project that will ultimately make all of the AWS blogs available within a common URL structure. We have a lot of news and other information to share and are taking steps now to make sure that you can easily find and enjoy as much of it as possible. Our new blogging platform gives us the control and the flexibility that we need to have in order to make this and the other AWS blogs as innovative as AWS itself.

We plan to implement a commenting feature in the future. Until then, you can send feedback to me at You can also follow me on Twitter and route comments to me there.
