Best of AWS announcements before re:Invent 2018
As usual, AWS starts dumping announcements in the upcoming weeks before re:Invent, which means there is even bigger news coming next week.
I selected a few that caught my attention.
AWS Lambda timeout up from 5 to 15 minutes
Without notice, they just tripled the maximum execution time.
Amazon API Gateway finally support AWS WAF
This one is over due. We know API Gateway uses CloudFront which itself supports AWS WAF, so it always seemed weird not being able to do this.
Amazon Aurora custom endpoints
With custom endpoints, you can now group and choose which instances in your cluster you run your queries on.
AWS CloudFormation Drift Detection
AWS CloudFront Origin Failover
You can now have a primary and secondary for each origin in your distribution.
Predictive Scaling for EC2
Using Machine Learning based on daily and weekly trends, Predictive Scaling will provision new EC2 instances just in time.
AWS Resource Access Manager
I have sometimes been struggling with access to resources across accounts in the same organization. This seems to provide a lot of new possibilities.
Next week I will be at re:Invent to follow the next announcements first hand!
