Last week was AWS re:Invent which is the most busy time of the year for those of us a part of the AWS ecosystem and arguably the most important. Every year Amazon inundates us with a large number of announcements and it can be overwhelming to keep track of them all. This year amazon announced new EC2 instance types, a time series database, and a slew of machine learning offerings… They also announced a service to retrieve data from orbiting satellites, a rack you can install in your data center with AWS services, an R/C car, and a blockchain service.
It’s easy to miss things in all of that so we’re going to recap what we see as the biggest announcements. Plus we’ll also briefly cover the fun we had with our “appearance” at Stackery’sre:Invent booth.
