Firecracker – Lightweight Virtualization for Serverless Computing

One of my favorite Amazon Leadership Principles is Customer Obsession. When we launched AWS Lambda, we focused on giving developers a secure serverless experience so that they could avoid managing infrastructure. In order to attain the desired level of isolation we used dedicated EC2 instances for each customer. This approach allowed us to meet our Read more about Firecracker – Lightweight Virtualization for Serverless Computing[…]

New C5n Instances with 100 Gbps Networking

We launched the powerful, compute-intensive C5 instances last year, and followed up with the C5d instances earlier this year with the addition of local NVMe storage. Both instances are built on the AWS Nitro system and are powered by AWS-custom 3.0 Ghz Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8000 series processors.

The first Read more about New – Predictive Scaling for EC2, Powered by Machine Learning[…]

New – Amazon Route 53 Resolver for Hybrid Clouds

I distinctly remember the excitement I felt when I created my first Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) as a customer. I had just spent months building a similar environment on-premises and had been frustrated at the complicated setup. One of the immediate benefits that the VPC provided was a magical address at 10.0.0.2 where our EC2 Read more about New – Amazon Route 53 Resolver for Hybrid Clouds[…]
