Amazon Web Services announces new service to simplify building blockchains


"This service is going to make it much easier for the customers to use the two most popular Blockchain frameworks", Jassy told a packed house during his keynote address at the "ReInvent 2018" conference here.

According to AWS, the new Amazon Quantum Ledger Database is a "fully managed ledger database that provides a transparent, immutable, and cryptographically verifiable transaction log ‎owned by a central trusted authority".

VMware software powers the world's complex digital infrastructure.

In a bid to capture the Hybrid Cloud market, the company along with VMware announced "AWS Outposts" - compute and storage racks that allow customers to run compute and storage on-premises, while seamlessly connecting to the rest of AWS's broad array of services in the Cloud.

With machine learning of the key areas that AWS is focusing on over the coming years, it should be interestign to see if more fun offerings like the DeepRacer will be on the way.

And they want all of this without sacrificing the speed and agility of AWS.

But it's not a jibe at VMware, which has hybrid cloud options that also stretch networks across on-prem and the cloud and deliver a single experience no matter workloads operate. "We are privileged to offer integration with AWS Security Hub to deliver comprehensive visibility into ongoing security and compliance risks, and end-to-end workflows to mitigate risks".

But it's also worth remembering that building out hyperscale clouds requires colossal spending that even AWS and its parent company can't enjoy. "It is a great place for developers and customers", informed Jassy.

As a result, many security teams find it challenging to separate the signal from the noise, prioritise the findings that matter most, and ensure that critical information isn't missed. (AWS), an company (NASDAQ: AMZN), announced that National Australia Bank (NAB) has selected AWS as a long term strategic cloud provider, with a goal of migrating more than 300 applications, including some core banking systems, to AWS by the end of 2019.

Inc's cloud unit on Wednesday announced a $399 autonomous toy vehicle, aimed at helping web developers try out some of their own self-driving technology.

Together these offerings will enable customers with a consistent infrastructure and operational experience across all VMware and AWS cloud environments. Amazon Forecast can generate and deploy custom, private machine learning forecasting models up to 50 percent more accurate at one-tenth of the cost of supply chain software, he said. As AWS is famously customer-centric, we'll take him at his word. The new offering will include several VMware technologies and services from VMware. For instance, the NAB Data Hub which is a data lake we're building on AWS, is a first and foundational element of our data strategy.

AWS revealed that the customers will be abel to use the Inferentia with the TensorFlow AI software, which is created by the Google, as well as some of the other AI frameworks like the ONNX and PyTorch format for converting models. Amazon SageMaker Ground Truth learns from these annotations in real time and can automatically apply labels to much of the remaining dataset, reducing the need for human review.
