AWS announces 13 new machine learning services and capabilities

The systems can be as small as a single server and as large as multiple racks full of data-center gear. "Customers can use either Ethereum or Hyperledger Fabric, the two most popular blockchain frameworks, and get a functioning blockchain network set up with just a few clicks". Alert Logic's integration is created to allow AWS Security Hub customers to incorporate verified security incidents from Alert Logic's 24x7 Security Operations Center (SOC) team. It leverages the same software stack, control plane, API's, and managed service as VMware Cloud on AWS and will be sold, provisioned, operated, and supported by VMware or one of its partners.

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is the natural place to have a data lake because of all of the security, access control, operational performance, functionality, and management controls it offers, as well as the proximity to the analytics and machine learning services available in AWS. Working directly with VMware to offer customers convenience in managing their workloads across on-premises and public cloud could initially be explained as a step in the migration process. Even with all the benefits, most organizations are still slow to embrace the cloud.

But AWS is now acknowledging that many companies want to stay on-premises. "This empowers them to maximize the value of their IT investments and achieve better business outcomes", said Mark Lohmeyer, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Platform Business Unit, VMware.

So much so that AWS has also launched a DeepRacer League which will host competitions at key events across the globe, followed by a final to beheld at next year's re:Invent.

Amazon cloud chief Andy Jassy made the announcement yesterday at the AWS re:Invent conference in Las Vegas.

"We are a disaster recovery loop for the county of Athabasca as well, so that's a service we provide as a university with our hookups to the SuperNet", she says. For more information, follow us at @AlertLogic on Twitter and see our blog post.

Drawing on its chip-development group, AWS also said that it has built custom chips for artificial intelligence that will be available from its cloud, following the lead of other internet companies like Google and Alibaba.

The executive also outlined that AWS only spends resources on something when they truly "understand the problem" and when "this is something that a lot of companies need".

"We've had a number of enterprises that said... most of my applications can move (to the cloud), but some can't move because they have very low latency requirements and reside in things that can't be moved off premises".
