AWS Outposts brings AWS hardware on-prem

Saturday, 01 Dec, 2018

"Customers are telling us that they don't want a hybrid experience that attempts to recreate a stunted version of a cloud on-premises, because it's perpetually out of sync with the cloud version", explained Jassy.

AWS Outposts initially will come in two flavors.

The new service will let satellite operators get access to a ground station at short notice on a pay-as-you-go basis. Customers can control satellite communications, downlink and process satellite data, and easily scale operations without managing ground station infrastructure.

The company had already created and sold a similar machine-learning system to organisations within the travel, customer support, and supply-chain management market, the WSJ reports.

There is undoubtedly a gap in the market for those wanting AWS services snugly integrated with on-prem infrastructure, and with Outposts Amazon will hope they have filled it.

The data-mining service, which is eligible to meet health privacy law standards, uses natural language processing to unearth data regarding diagnoses, treatment histories, medication dosages, symptoms and more. This covers AWS' GovCloud and Secret Regions across almost every data classification. AWS Outposts is a fully managed and configurable compute and storage racks built with AWS-designed hardware, 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. The service learns in real time from a sample of labels assigned by humans and automatically applies labels to much of the remaining data. "Solving this challenge at low cost requires a dedicated inference chip", the company said. "Amazon SageMaker RL, the pre-built models, and available frameworks made everything really accessible, such that in less than a day I was able to have this fantastic outcome". Ethereum, however, is not yet available for the development of the platform. Once your network is up and running, Managed Blockchain makes it easy to manage and maintain your blockchain network. As a result, developers no longer need to spend time hand tuning their trained models for each and every hardware platform (saving time and expense).

"A lot of times people get focused on the wrong things when they think about how to build sustainable businesses", he said. "We're excited to expand our relationship with NAB as their strategic cloud provider as they migrate more workloads to AWS and help them realize efficiencies and benefits in areas like performance computing, security and compliance, data analytics, and machine learning".

Essentially customers want consistency in their control plane, APIs, tools and basic functionality between their on-premise and cloud applications, and while AWS has capabilities that allow enterprise customers to make that transition - like Virtual Private Cloud, Direct Connect or Storage Gateway - that's not true hybrid cloud in the eyes of some customers. The new offering will include several VMware technologies and services from VMware. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ:AMZN), launched the AWS DeepRacer League (DRL), the first global, autonomous racing league, open to everyone.
