AWS Systems Manager, a unified experience to view operational data from multiple AWS services to automate operational tasks across your AWS resources, now allows streaming of Run Command output to Amazon CloudWatch logs, allowing you to track command execution in near real-time.
AWS Systems Manager now supports taking action for Automation step failure by allowing branching to another step within the Automation Document. This feature allows customers to perform graceful exits, send notifications, and a variety of clean up actions when an automation step fails. For example, when an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) update automation step fails midway, the customer can now call for automation to take a snapshot, close the EC2 instance, notify admin, and exit gracefully. Previously, there were only two choices, “Continue” and “Abort” upon failure of a step.
Amazon SageMaker now supports Pipe Input Mode for the built-in TensorFlow containers. Pipe Input Mode enables data to stream directly from Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) to the TensorFlow container on the training instance, using the TensorFlow dataset construct.
Amazon SageMaker now supports fully-managed high-throughput batch transform jobs for non-real time inferencing. Existing machine learning models developed on Amazon SageMaker can work seamlessly with this new capability without any changes.
Amazon S3 now provides increased performance to support up to 3,500 requests per second to add data and 5,500 requests per second to retrieve data, which can save significant processing time for no additional charge. Each S3 prefix can support these request rates, making it simple to increase performance exponentially.
Starting today, Amazon Comprehend supports Syntax analysis —enabling customers to analyze text using tokenization and Parts of Speech (PoS). The Amazon Comprehend Syntax API allows customers to identify word boundaries and labels like nouns and adjectives within the text.
AWS AppSync releases enhanced no-code GraphQL API builder, HTTP resolvers, and new built-in scalar types
Today, AWS AppSync has released a new flow for provisioning a GraphQL endpoint. Customers can now model logical types and automatically create resolvers along with Amazon DynamoDB tables without needing to first write a GraphQL schema. The process includes a new query and filtering system that allows logical comparisons (greater than, contains, etc.) against fields in a schema without requiring any coding from the developer.
Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) now allows you to use your own publicly-routable IP addresses with AWS resources such as EC2 instances, Network Load Balancers, and NAT Gateways. After you bring your IPs to AWS, AWS will advertise your public IP addresses on the Internet. You will continue to have access to Amazon IP addresses and can choose to use your own IP addresses, Amazon’s IP addresses, or both with your AWS resources.
Your applications might use trusted IP addresses that are whitelisted by your partners and customers. With Bring Your Own IP, you can move these applications to AWS without requiring your partners and customers to change their IP address whitelists. Bring Your Own IP is also useful for applications such as commercial email services that rely on IP address reputation to allow traffic from your endpoints to reach intended recipients.
Bring Your Own IP is available for preview in the US West (Oregon) region. You can request access to this feature by completing this request form.
Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for you to add a speech-to-text capability to your applications. You can use Amazon Transcribe to create text transcripts of audio and video files. Coming soon, Amazon Transcribe will support a feature called channel synthesis to better handle audio where each speaker records on a different channel. For example, a stereo track with the interviewer is stored in the left and the interviewee on the right.
Amazon Transcribe is now available in the AWS Asia Pacific (Sydney) and Canada (Central) Regions. Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for you to add a speech-to-text capability to your applications. You can use Amazon Transcribe to create text transcripts of audio and video files.
Amazon Polly is a service that turns texts into lifelike speech, allowing you to create applications that talk, and build entirely new categories of speech-enabled applications. Starting today, you can put up to 100,000 characters in an input text using the new asynchronous synthesis task and store the output files in S3. This greatly simplifies the process of voicing long form content like news articles and documents.
Amazon Translate is a neural machine translation service that delivers fast, high-quality, and affordable language translation. Starting today, Amazon Translate is adding the following six new languages that are highly requested by customers: Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Turkish. These languages expand upon the existing six languages already available in Amazon Translate: Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish.
Amazon Polly is a service that turns texts into lifelike speech, allowing you to create applications that talk, and build entirely new categories of speech-enabled applications. Today, Amazon Polly is releasing a new feature, time-driven prosody, which automatically adjusts the speech rate based on a maximum allotted amount of time you define.
Customers in industries such as mining, energy, military, retail, and manufacturing use Snowball Edge to collect data in remote locations and ship these devices and data back to AWS with a standard freight carrier. These devices can also perform simple local pre-processing tasks using AWS Greengrass, AWS Lambda functions, and Amazon S3.
Kinesis Video Streams now supports HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) to playback live and recorded video from devices
The Amazon Kinesis Video Streams’ HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) capability enables developers to playback their ingested video streams using the industry-standard, HTTP-based media streaming protocol. As devices stream their video into Kinesis Video Streams, developers can use the fully-managed HLS capability to playback live and recorded video from their streams.
