Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX) – In-Memory Caching for Read-Intensive Workloads

Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator(DAX)は、開発者がキャッシュの無効化、データ集計、またはクラスタ管理を管理する必要なしに、DynamoDBテーブルにメモリ内アクセラレーションを追加するための機能です。

Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX) is a fully managed, highly available, in-memory cache for DynamoDB that delivers up to a 10x performance improvement – from milliseconds to microseconds – even at millions of requests per second. DAX does all the heavy lifting required to add in-memory acceleration to your DynamoDB tables, without requiring developers to manage cache invalidation, data population, or cluster management. Now you can focus on building great applications for your customers without worrying about performance at scale. You do not need to modify application logic, since DAX is compatible with existing DynamoDB API calls. You can enable DAX with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console or using the AWS SDK. Just as with DynamoDB, you only pay for the capacity you provision. Announcing Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX), Delivering up to 10X Faster Query Performance

Amazon Redshift Spectrum – Exabyte-Scale In-Place Queries of S3 Data

Amazon Redshift Spectrumは、直接Amazon S3上のデータに対してSQLクエリを実行できる機能です。

Today we announced the general availability of Amazon Redshift Spectrum, a new feature that allows you to run SQL queries against exabytes of data in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). With Redshift Spectrum, you can extend the analytic power of Amazon Redshift beyond data stored on local disks in your data warehouse to query vast amounts of unstructured data in your Amazon S3 “data lake” — without having to load or transform any data. Redshift Spectrum applies sophisticated query optimization, scaling processing across thousands of nodes so results are fast – even with large data sets and complex queries. Introducing Amazon Redshift Spectrum: Run Amazon Redshift Queries directly on Datasets as Large as an Exabyte in Amazon S3

With X-Ray, you can understand how your application and its underlying services are performing to identify and troubleshoot the root cause of performance issues and errors. X-Ray provides an end-to-end view of requests as they travel through your application, and shows a map of your application’s underlying components. You can use X-Ray to analyze both applications in development and in production, from simple three-tier applications to complex microservices applications consisting of thousands of services. AWS X-Ray Now Generally Available

AWS Lambdaのトレース機能がプレビューで使用できます。

You can now use AWS X-Ray to trace requests made to your serverless applications built using AWS Lambda. This enables you to gain insights into the performance of serverless applications, allowing you to pinpoint the root cause of issues so that you can address them. This feature is available now in Preview. AWS X-Ray Now Supports Tracing for AWS Lambda (Preview)

Amazon Rekognition Update – Image Moderation

Amazon Rekognitionは、画像内の明示的かつ示唆的なアダルトコンテンツを検出できるようになり、不適切なコンテンツからユーザーを保護することができるようになりました。

Amazon Rekognition can now detect explicit and suggestive adult content in images, enabling you to protect users from inappropriate content. Beyond flagging an image based on presence of adult content, Image Moderation also returns a hierarchical list of labels with confidence scores. These labels indicate specific categories of adult content, thus providing more granular control to developers to filter and manage large volumes of user generated content (UGC). Detect explicit or suggestive adult content using Amazon Rekognition

Amazon Polly – Speech Marks and Whispering

Amazon Pollyの出力に、囁き声のエフェクトが追加できるようになりました。また、Speech Marksを使用してビジュアルアニメーションとスピーチを同期させることができるようになりました。

You can now add a whispered speech effect in your Text-to-Speech output with Amazon Polly, and synchronize speech with visual animation using Speech Marks. To create voices with a whispered effect, you simply use the SSML tag “whispered” to mark the text input to be spoken in a hushed or whispered voice. This tag can be applied to any of the 47 voices in Amazon Polly’s Text-to-Speech portfolio. Visit the Amazon Polly documentation for more information on how to use the new “whispered” SSML tag.

SaaS Contracts for AWS Marketplace

SaaS契約により、AWS Marketplace上のソフトウェア調達が簡素化されました。

AWS Marketplace, which lists over 3,800 software listings from popular software vendors across 35 product categories, has announced that customers can now contract for one, two, or three year terms for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Application Programming Interface (API) products directly through AWS Marketplace with SaaS Contracts. With this feature, buyers use a shopping-cart like experience to determine the size (number of units) and duration (length of time) for their contract. For example, they can enter how many users they want and can choose if they want to make a multi-year commitment. Buyers also have the ability to increase the size of their contract at any time, and can upgrade from a monthly term to a one, two, or three year term when needed. With the launch of SaaS Contracts on AWS Marketplace, customers can choose from more products than ever before- and sellers can offer better discounts for longer commitments.
