About AWS:

Amazon Web Services (AWS), an Amazon cloud computing platform, offers a variety of services encompassing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). These services provide organizations with essential tools such as computing power, storage, and content delivery.

Launched in 2006 from Amazon’s internal infrastructure to support its online retail operations, AWS pioneered the pay-as-you-go cloud computing model, allowing users to access compute, storage, and throughput at scale.

With its extensive range of tools and solutions, AWS caters to software developers and enterprises worldwide, operating in data centres across approximately 190 countries. Notably, AWS services are accessible to government agencies, educational institutions, non-profits, and private organizations alike.

What AWS does:

 AWS can be broken down into services. Each service can be configured differently depending on the user’s requirements. AWS services should allow users to view configuration options and individual server map information.

The Amazon Web Services portfolio includes more than 100 services, including application development and infrastructure management. The most important services are:

  • Storage databases
  • Data management
  • Hybrid Cloud
  • Networking
  • Tools for development
  • Governance
  • Big Data Management
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI).
  • Mobile development
  • Notifications and messages

  • Amazon Virtual Private Cloud customers can now assign IP prefixes for their EC2 specimen

AVPC now enables you to assign IPv4 or IPv6 prefixes for your EC2 instances, thereby facilitating the management of container and networking applications that demand multiple IP addresses.

In container orchestrators, it’s common for each container workload to require a unique IP address. With the AVPC feature, you can assign hundreds, or even thousands, of IP addresses to an instance. Consequently, this expands the capacity for hosting containers within an instance. Additionally, prefixes can be assigned to an instance, streamlining management processes. As a result, you can launch and terminate containers from one centralized location without the need to manage individual IP assignments.

  • Introducing the AWS Edit in the Cloud

Amazon Web Service Edit in the Cloud is an AWS Solutions Implementation that empowers content creators to establish a virtual editing environment on AWS. By leveraging this solution, editors and creative professionals can seamlessly collaborate from anywhere on the planet, utilizing only a laptop connected to a high-speed internet connection. This innovative solution harnesses the power of the AWS Cloud to facilitate editorial and content delivery, enabling collaborators to publish content on their preferred platforms via high-speed internet connectivity.

This infrastructure is what powers the AWS Edit in the Cloud Solution:

  1. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon GC2) instance for Windows Server 2019 with Teradici Cloud Access Software, NVIDIA T4 GPU drivers, and Teradici Cloud Access Software for your Non-Linear Editor software.
  2. AWS Directory Service for user authentication.
  3. AWS FSx for Windows File Server to access digital assets via the AWS EC2 instance through your editor of choice. FSx for Windows File Server will automatically mount the network share when the Windows Amazon EC2 instance starts. FSx for Windows File Server is used to store your media assets that can be used by your nonlinear editor (NLE).
  • AWS Informs the General Availability of Amazon EBS Block Express Volume

Amazon Web Services announced the availability of io2 Block Express volumes. These volumes can deliver up to 4x more throughput, IOPS, and capacity than io2 volume and are designed for sub-millisecond latency, 99.999% durability, and 99.999% durability. The io2 Block Express is an io2 volume that runs on the EBS Block Express architecture and supports standard features like Multi-Attach or Elastic Volumes. io2 Block Express volumes will be available with the Amazon EC2 R5b sample, which offers the best EBS-optimized performance. Support for other instances is coming soon. Customers can now create a single R5b volume that has up to 256,000 IOPS and 4000 MB/s throughputs. It also has a 64 TiB storage capacity. This combination of R5b instances and io2 Block express makes it ideal for mission-critical, large, I/O-intensive, and mission-critical deployments of Oracle, SAP HANA, and Microsoft SQL Server.
