This week in CloudTalk we go all in on re:Invent 2019. With 65,000 people spread out across the campus map, and over 2,500 technical sessions, we have you covered with the least you need to know about the biggest AWS re:Invent, to date. 


CTO, Bobby Allen shares how CloudGenera evaluates customer workloads at AWS re:Invent2019.


Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon Web Services, delivers his AWS re:Invent 2019 keynote, featuring the latest news, announcements, and a jab at Oracle and IBM (41:22). Again.




New Services

Graviton2: AWS is launching more powerful processors it developed in house based on the Arm architecture to power computing resources, representing an alternative to existing cloud servers containing Intel and AMD chips. The chips promise to provide lower cost for the same level of performance in tasks like handling user requests in applications, analyzing user data or monitoring performance.

Wave Length: The new Wave Length service, thanks to collaborations with Verizon and other service providers, will enable faster cloud computing and storage services to keep applications moving quickly as 5G arrives.

Fraud Detector: A new service for fraud detection will help companies suss out fake sign-ups and transactions from stolen credit cards. It draws on knowledge Amazon has built up over the years about selling products online.

Kendra: Kendra will be able to search for information stored in various enterprise content repositories, including Box and Microsoft’s SharePoint.

Managed Apache Cassandra Service: Amazon revealed a new service for using the open-source database Cassandra that will compete with products from a start-up called DataStax. The company has done this before with companies like Elastic and MongoDB.


Quantum Technologies

Amazon Braket: “A fully managed service that helps you get started with quantum computing by providing a development environment to explore and design quantum algorithms, test them on simulated quantum computers, and run them on your choice of different quantum hardware technologies.”


Machine Learning 

CodeGuru: Programmers can access when they want a computer to review their source code so that it runs efficiently. The service will work with code storage service GitHub, which is owned by cloud rival Microsoft.



SageMaker: People who come up with artificial-intelligence models can now use a web application from AWS called SageMaker Studio IDE that’s designed just for that work. In addition, a new tool called SageMaker Autopilot can help customers train AI models — all one has to do is feed it some data.



Contact Lens: New analytics technology for its Connect contact center service can recognize people’s emotions on phone calls coming in from customers, so representatives can provide better support.



IAM Access Analyzer: A new tool to help customers avoid leaky S3 buckets.


“I came across this article this morning and it is a great synopsis of the space we play in. After reading it, my thought was, how can any company NOT want our platform with all the choices they have to make??” – CloudGenera Senior Account Manager, Tony Damiano
