Over 43,000 people traveled to Las Vegas this year to attend the annual AWS re:Invent conference. AWS CEO, Andy Jassy, kicked off Wednesday morning’s keynote citing AWS’ impressive growth. The public cloud provider now operates with a $18B revenue run rate and 44% market share.
- Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is a managed service that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on AWS without needing to install, operate, and maintain your own Kubernetes clusters.
- AWS Fargate is an easy way to deploy your containers on AWS. It allows you to use containers as a fundamental compute primitive without having to manage the underlying instances.
- Amazon Aurora Serverless is an on-demand auto-scaling configuration for Amazon Aurora, where the database will automatically start up, shut down, and scale up or down capacity based on your application’s needs.
- Amazon Aurora Multi-Master allows you to create multiple read/write master instances across multiple Availability Zones.
- Global Tables builds upon DynamoDB’s global footprint to provide you with a fully managed, multi-region, and multi-master database that provides fast, local, read and write performance for massively scaled, global applications.
- On-Demand Backup allows you to create full backups of your DynamoDB tables data for data archival, helping you meet your corporate and governmental regulatory requirements.

- Amazon SageMaker is a fully-managed service that enables developers and data scientists to quickly and easily build, train, and deploy machine learning models at any scale.
- AWS DeepLens is a new video camera that runs deep learning models directly on the device, out in the field.
- Amazon Kinesis Video Streams is a fully managed video ingestion and storage service. Kinesis Video Streams makes it easy to securely stream video from connected devices to AWS for machine learning, analytics, and processing.
- Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for developers to add speech to text capability to their applications.
- Amazon Translate is a high-quality neural machine translation service that uses advanced machine learning technologies to provide fast language translation of text-based content and enable the development of applications that provide multilingual user experiences.
