Amazon Personalize uses machine learning technology perfected from over 20 years of recommender systems development at Amazon.com. With Amazon Personalize you are can personalize recommendations for products, videos, music, ebooks, ads, marketing emails, and more, for your users, without any prior machine learning experience.
Amazon GuardDuty is now available in the AWS Africa (Cape Town) and Europe (Milan) Regions. You can now continuously monitor and detect security threats in these regions to help protect your AWS accounts, workloads, and data stored in Amazon S3.
Customers can now connect their OneLogin Identity Management Platform (OneLogin) to AWS Single Sign-On (SSO) once, manage access to AWS centrally in AWS SSO, and enable end users to sign in using OneLogin to access all their assigned AWS accounts. The integration helps customers simplify AWS access management across multiple accounts while maintaining familiar OneLogin experiences for administrators who manage identities, and for end users as they sign in. AWS SSO and OneLogin use standards-based automation to provision users and groups into AWS SSO, saving administration time and increasing security.
AWS DeepComposer launches new learning capsule that deep dives into training an autoregressive CNN model
Today, we are excited to release a new learning capsule that deep dives into training an autoregressive convolutional neural network model (AR-CNN) in AWS DeepComposer. AWS DeepComposer gives developers a creative way to get started with machine learning (ML). With AWS DeepComposer, developers can get hands-on, literally, with a musical keyboard and the latest machine learning techniques to expand their ML skills. To learn the concepts of generative AI algorithms, developers can use easy-to-consume, bite-size learning capsules in the AWS DeepComposer console. In our previous learning capsule launched in June 2020, developers were introduced to an AR-CNN model and learned how it is able to add or remove one note at a time to generate music.
Amazon GuardDuty expands threat detection coverage to help you better protect your data stored in Amazon S3
Amazon GuardDuty broadens threat detection coverage to monitor for highly-suspicious data access and anomaly detection to help you better protect your data residing in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). This new capability adds S3 data events (LISTs/PUTs/GETs) as a new log and event source that GuardDuty continuously profiles to monitor data access behavior, combine it with GuardDuty threat intelligence, and identify suspicious activity such as data access from an unusual geo-location, API calls from a known malicious IP address, or unusual API calls consistent with malicious data discovery attempts.
Amazon EC2 On-Demand Capacity Reservations now allows you to bring your own licenses (BYOL) of Windows operating systems. With this release, you can now create an EC2 Capacity Reservation and launch EC2 instances, running your existing Windows licenses, into the Capacity Reservation.
You can now use a Network Load Balancer (NLB) to distribute UDP traffic to container-based applications running on AWS Fargate orchestrated by Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS). Network Load Balancers are fully-managed load balancers that operate at the connection level (Layer-4) and are capable of handling millions of requests at ultra-low latency. Until now, you could use Network Load Balancers with AWS Fargate only with the TCP protocol. With this new integration, you get the simplicity of serverless containers to run applications on Fargate that use the UDP protocol. You can run workloads such as DNS, IoT, real-time media, and syslog while maintaining high throughput at ultra low latency through the Network Load Balancer.
The EC2 Hibernation feature is now available in the Africa (Cape Town) and Europe (Milan) AWS Regions. Hibernation gives you the ability to launch EC2 instances, set them up as desired, hibernate them, and then quickly bring them back to life when you need them. Applications pick up exactly where they left off instead of rebuilding their memory footprint. By using Hibernation, you can maintain a fleet of pre-warmed instances to get to a productive state faster without modifying your existing applications.
Starting today, you can target EC2 Capacity Reservations within an AWS Resource Group using the Resource Group ARN. With this feature, you can now use Capacity Reservations seamlessly for workloads that span Availability Zones and multiple instance types. This feature integrates seamlessly with EC2 Auto Scaling and EC2 Fleet.
Amazon RDS Proxy, a fully managed, highly available database proxy for Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), is now generally available with MySQL and PostgreSQL compatibility. RDS Proxy makes applications more scalable, more resilient to database failures, and more secure.
You can now register Amazon EC2 instances in AWS Cloud Map by providing EC2 instance identifiers instead of the IP address when using HTTP namespaces. AWS Cloud Map is a cloud resource discovery service. Using AWS Cloud Map, you can define custom names for your application resources, such as Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon ECS tasks, Amazon S3 buckets, or any other cloud resource. Your application can then discover the location and metadata of cloud resources associated with these custom names via AWS SDK or by making authenticated API calls.
