Episode 79 - re:Invent 2020 - App Dev, Containers & Database Wrap
In this episode of AWS TechChat we continue with part two of our four part re:Invent 2020 series with this episode covering all Application Development, Containers, and Database announcements.
For our developer community, we talked about:
* Using CodeGuru’s new Security detectors to help you find and remediate security issues in your code
* Python support for CodeGuru’s in preview
* We shared another new service, DevOps Guru in preview, for measuring and improving an application’s operational performance
* Lambda now supports up to 10 GB of memory and 6 vCPU cores and a billing granularity reduction down to 1ms
* Amazon API Gateway now supports integration with Step Functions StartSyncExecution for HTTP APIs
* Appflow simplifies cloud app integrations for connect customers with Customer Profiles
* Similarly, Appflow can provide similar app integrations with those 3rd party apps to HoneyCode.
* For those Amplify users, deploy Fargate containers through the Amplify CLI and you get a new AdminUI to boot that deploys all the underlying bits for you.
* AWS Proton to bridge the gap between platform and development teams
In containers we kicked it off with EKS.
* First, cluster add-ons managed through the EKS console, CLI, or API.
* Run EKS on premises with EKS Distribution
* EKS on Fargate now has built in logging with Fluent Bit under the hood
* You can now see all your Kubernetes resources in the EKS console without needing extra tools
* Public registries for your container images with ECR public and the ECR public gallery
* Use your existing containers as a lambda package format
* ECS Deployment Circuit Breaker is in preview to stop deployments from getting worse and auto-rollback
In database land we covered
* Bablefish, not the mythological creature, but a translation layer between Aurora PostgresSQL and Microsoft SQL.
* v2 of Aurora Serverless has arrived, considerably faster and scales in a fraction of second, with scaling so fast it is perfect for those event driven applications.
* Data Exchange adds revision access rules for governing access
* RDS Service Delivery Partners for when you want someone to build, deploy, and manage your RDS deployments
* RDS Cross-Region backups comes to RDS for Oracle
* Share data across Redshift clusters with data sharing in preview and pull data from partners directly via the RedShift Console.
* RedShift Federated query comes to RDS for MySQL and Aurora MySQL
* Redshift Automatic Table Optimization to keep your data warehouse running in tip top shape automatically.
* Move RedShift clusters easily across Availability Zones.
* JSON supports in preview for RedShift
* Finally, AQUA comes to RedShift in Preview as a caching layer to speed up queries.
