AWS steps into blockchain arena

AWS Outposts

"In addition, Managed Blockchain can replicate an immutable copy of your blockchain network activity into Amazon Quantum Ledger Database (QLDB), a fully managed ledger database".

For customers who prefer the same exact APIs and control plane they're used to running in AWS's cloud, but on-premises, they can use the AWS native variant of AWS Outposts. When asked whether the Outposts technology will eventually be able to run on data center equipment from the likes of Dell and HPE, Jassy said, "it's possible".

In just six years, the AWS Marketplace has attracted more than 200,000 active AWS customers who are using software in every category from security to log analysis.

Amazon Web Services is launching a self-driving race auto, AWS DeepRacer, that you can buy for $400 next year.

These services automate multi-step processes to get customers up and running more quickly, while also centralising management of crucial elements of their AWS environment, helping maintain consistency and providing more complete visibility. The service helps eliminate the cost of overhead needed to create the network.It goes further, having automatic scalability to adjust itself to the thousands of transactions that will take place on it. By bringing the AWS Cloud on prem in conjuncture with VMware, AWS will sell its own hardware, install it for the customers and will even manage it. But the new offering won't have broad appeal. VMware recently announced Project Dimension, now in Beta, to extend VMware Cloud to deliver SDDC infrastructure as-a-service to on-premise locations, including data center and edge environments.

AWS has also boosted its machine learning services. VMware Cloud on AWS Outposts will support virtual machine-, container-, and Kubernetes-based applications across the hybrid cloud. The move is also another development from the world's leading cloud computing company that will directly impact a smaller tech company built around an open-source project. On Wednesday, AWS unveiled that it will be offering fully managed and configurable compute and storage racks built with AWS-designed hardware to allows customers to run its solutions on-premises.

Findings are correlated into integrated dashboards that visualise and summarise a customer's current security and compliance status, and highlight trends and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances that are generating an increasing number of findings.

AWS caters to customers who want to build from the ground up, while also adding services over time like AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Amazon Lightsail, and Amazon SageMaker that are created to serve the needs of this second type of builder.

Of course, being an Amazon product, it also supports data from popular AWS products such as EC2, SageMaker and the new Elastic Inference Engine announced today. Outposts is available in the second half of 2019. Headquartered in Palo Alto, California, this year VMware celebrates twenty years of breakthrough innovation benefiting business and society.
