Change Description
Amazon DynamoDB Consistent Batch Reads

Amazon Simple Queue Service Long Polling

Long polling allows for Amazon SQS to wait for a specified amount of time for a message to be available instead of returning an empty response if one is not available.

For more information about long polling, go to Amazon SQS Long Polling in the Amazon Simple Queue ServiceDeveloper Guide

Amazon Simple Queue Service Signature Version 4

Signature version 4 provides improved security and performance.

For more information about signature version 4, go to Query Request Authentication in the Amazon Simple Queue Service Developer Guide.

Amazon S3 - Archiving Objects to Amazon Glacier

Amazon S3 now provides a storage option that enables you to utilize Amazon Glacier's low-cost storage service for data archival. To archive objects, you define archival rules identifying objects and a timeline when you want Amazon S3 to archive these objects to Amazon Glacier. You can easily set the rules on a bucket using the Amazon S3 management console or programmatically using the SDK.

For more information, see Object Lifecycle Management.
