Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon Web Services, Introduces New and Enhanced AWS Services at re:Invent

Las Vegas — Wednesday, November 29, 2017

It was 8:00 a.m. when AWS CEO Andy Jassy took to the stage to offer up the latest AWS news and announcements. And offer up he did. To my recollection, the number of services announced today dwarfed anything unveiled at any previous AWS re:Invent show. (To see the ever-growing list of services debuted this year, head over to the AWS blog.)

The sheer number of new services blew away all expectations. Not only did Amazon announce new compute instances and enhancements to some of their existing services, but the big news was their flurry of announcements about new services that continue down the path of Serverless and Machine Learning.

Here are some of the highlights, along with my points of view from a DevOps perspective. Read more “Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon Web Services, Introduces New and Enhanced AWS Services at re:Invent”

AWS re:Invent 2016 Sets Records for New Services and Attendance

Interested in attending AWS re:Invent 2017? Take a look at what we’ll be up to.


AWS re:Invent 2016 has come and gone and what an event it was! This year had a record-breaking attendance of more than 30,000 people, showing the tremendous interest in all the advantages that the cloud has to offer. The expo floor (where Threat Stack was a Gold Sponsor) mirrored this growth with many new vendors to full-scale enterprise offerings with multi-floor architectures. It’s clear from this year’s re:Invent that the cloud industry has moved out of its infancy into full scale adoption across a vast number of  implementations.

So, what were our team’s key takeaways? It’s become clear that security is no longer a tax, but rather an investment into long-term organizational growth and success. Given the cloud’s explosive growth, security must be considered early on rather than as an afterthought. In addition to a strong interest in security, AWS launched many new services that will help to accelerate cloud adoption and enable companies to move even faster.
