With the recent most release of the AWS Toolkit for JetBrains, customers can connect to Amazon RDS or Redshift with only a few clicks. Using the AWS Toolkits for JetBrains, you can use both IAM or credentials in Secrets Manager to connect to Amazon Redshift or RDS databases. You no longer need to have long-lived database credentials, or copy-paste auth tokens from the AWS CLI; credentials are generated by the Toolkit as they are needed instead of being saved to disk.
Amazon ElastiCache is now available in the Los Angeles AWS Local Zones. You can now run latency-sensitive ElastiCache workloads local to end-users and resources in Local Zones.
Today, the AWS Copilot CLI for Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) launched version 0.4.0. Starting with this release, you can enable autoscaling for services based on average CPU and memory utilization and provide a maximum and minimum number of tasks. AWS Copilot will also retain the service’s desired count after autoscaling occurred, so that if a deployment starts, your service will remain scaled out or in based on resource utilization.
AWS Launch Wizard now allows customers to deploy SAP workloads using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Version 8.1.
Starting today, you can receive anomaly detection alert notifications with root cause analysis, so you can proactively take actions and minimize unintentional spend.
You can now create Amazon Aurora database clusters with up to 128TB of storage. The new storage limit is available for both the MySQL- and PostgreSQL-compatible editions of Amazon Aurora. Previously, Aurora database instances supported 64TB of storage.
Starting today, Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL supports the pglogical extension. pglogical is an open source PostgreSQL extension that helps customers replicate data between independent Aurora PostgreSQL databases while maintaining consistent read-write access and a mix of private and common data in each database. Amazon Aurora pglogical uses logical replication to copy data changes between independent Aurora PostgreSQL databases, optionally resolving conflicts based on standard algorithms. Customers can enable pglogical from within their Aurora PostgreSQL instances, and pay only for the additional clusters and cross-region traffic needed, with no upfront costs or software purchases required. Fully integrated, pglogical requires no triggers or external programs. This alternative to physical replication is a highly efficient method of replicating data using a publish/subscribe model for selective replication.
You can now use AWS Lake Formation in the Europe (Milan) region.
You now can restore Amazon DynamoDB table backups as new tables in the Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Europe (Milan), and Middle East (Bahrain) Regions
You can use Amazon DynamoDB backup and restore to create on-demand and continuous backups of your DynamoDB tables—and then restore from those backups. You also can restore DynamoDB table backups as new tables in other AWS Regions. Starting today, you can restore table backups as new tables in the Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Europe (Milan), and Middle East (Bahrain) Regions.
