AWS : Keeping up with the changes
As we all know, working in the public cloud space means changes in the blink of an eye. Services are added, updated (and in some cases, removed) at short notice and it’s vital from not just a Solutions Architect’s perspective but from an end user or operational standpoint that we keep up to date with these announcements, as and when they happen.
In days of old, we’d keep an eye on a vendor’s annual conference when they’d reveal something cool in their keynote, with a release on that day or to follow shortly after. In the public cloud, innovation happens much quicker and it’s no longer a case of waiting for “Geek’s Christmas”.
To that end, today I was pointed towards the AWS “What’s New” blog, which in essence is a change log for AWS services. Yesterday alone lists 8 announcements or service updates.
It’s a site well worth bookmarking and reviewing on a regular basis, I’d suggest weekly if you have time. If you’re designing AWS infrastructures or running your business on AWS, you need to know what’s on the roadmap so you can plan accordingly.
