Previously, you had to manually add individual S3 buckets in your account to track S3 object-level operations, and repeat the process for each new S3 bucket. Now, you can automatically log S3 Data Events for all of your new and existing S3 buckets with a few clicks. This ensures that all S3 object-level API activity in your account is recorded to help with your data exfiltration and S3 objects usage analysis.</p>Thu, 21 Sep 2017 20:30:33 +0000general:products/aws-cloudtrail,general:products/amazon-s3aws@amazon.comhttps://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2017/09/elastic-load-balancing-network-load-balancer-now-supports-load-balancing-to-ip-addresses-as-targets-for-aws-and-on-premises-resources/30a2eafa0c615b5782f5bf30043289ed0540c962Elastic Load Balancing: Network Load Balancer now supports load balancing to IP addresses as targets for AWS and on-premises resources<p>We are pleased to announce that Network Load Balancers can now distribute traffic to AWS resources using their IP addresses as targets in addition to the instance IDs.

With this addition, you can now select between two different types of fleets when building your AppStream 2.0 streaming environment. With Always-On fleets, users get instant-on access to their applications, but you are charged streaming fees for all instances in the fleet, even if no users are connected. With On-Demand fleets, users experience a small delay accessing their first application. However, you are only charged streaming fees for instances when users are connected, and a small, fixed hourly fee for instances in your fleet that are not being used. On-Demand fleets provide an additional way to help you reduce your streaming costs while retaining the capability to use features such as auto-scaling your fleet size based on user demand, monitoring, and easy updates to your applications.&nbsp;</p>Wed, 20 Sep 2017 00:40:33 +0000general:products/amazon-appstream-2-0aws@amazon.comhttps://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2017/09/aws-snowball-and-aws-snowball-edge-available-in-asia-pacific-tokyo-region/4b5508e29b02dd462ca2dac6cf136f74bb4f1204AWS Snowball and AWS Snowball Edge Available in Asia Pacific (Tokyo) Region<p>AWS Snowball and Snowball Edge are now available in Asia Pacific (Tokyo) region.&nbsp;</p>Tue, 19 Sep 2017 23:19:41 +0000general:products/aws-snowball-edgeaws@amazon.comhttps://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2017/09/aws-mobile-hub-releases-react-native-starter-project-with-helper-code-to-github/b3fcae4df1703eef6d96e87d0a236d2101eab58dAWS Mobile Hub releases React Native starter project with helper code to GitHub<p>AWS Mobile Hub has released a <a href="https://github.com/awslabs/aws-mobile-react-native-starter" target="_blank">React Native starter project</a> with a Deploy to Mobile Hub button that leverages recently released functionality to configure an entire backend for mobile applications with a single click.</p>Tue, 19 Sep 2017 18:42:09 +0000general:products/aws-mobile-hubaws@amazon.comhttps://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2017/09/amazon-ec2-spot-can-now-stop-and-start-your-spot-instances/07053638d263d15be4c62031265414cfae4ac813Amazon EC2 Spot Can Now Stop and Start Your Spot Instances<p>Amazon EC2 Spot now allows Amazon EBS-backed instances to be stopped in the event of interruption, instead of being terminated when capacity is no longer available at your preferred price. Spot can then fulfill your request by restarting instances from a stopped state when capacity is available within your price and time requirements. To use this new feature, choose “stop” instead of “terminate” as the interruption behavior when submitting a persistent Spot request. When you choose “stop”, Spot will shut down your instance upon interruption. The EBS root device and attached EBS volumes are saved, and their data persists. When capacity is available again within your price and time requirements, Spot will restart your instance. Upon restart, the EBS root device is restored from its prior state, previously attached data volumes are reattached, and the instance retains its instance ID. &nbsp;</p>Tue, 19 Sep 2017 18:01:37 +0000general:products/amazon-elastic-block-store,general:products/amazon-ec2aws@amazon.comhttps://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2017/09/new-quick-start-build-a-hybrid-data-lake-foundation-on-the-aws-cloud-with-wandisco-fusion-and-aws-services/12899c233944273f2a0a446b9115770c590aff13New Quick Start: Build a hybrid data lake on the AWS Cloud with WANdisco Fusion and AWS services<p>This Quick Start deploys a hybrid architecture that integrates on-premises Hadoop clusters with a data lake environment on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud.
