Looks like it is my turn once again to write the AWS Weekly Roundup. I wrote and published the first one on April 16, 2012 — just 4,165 short day ago!
Last Week’s Launches
Here are some of the launches that caught my eye last week:
R7iz Instances – Optimized for high CPU performance and designed for your memory-intensive workloads, these instances are powered by the fastest 4th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable-based (Sapphire Rapids) instances in the cloud. They are available in eight sizes, with 2 to 128 vCPUs and 16 to 1024 GiB of memory, along with generous allocations of network and EBS bandwidth:
|r7iz.large||2||16||Up to 12.5 Gbps||Up to 10 Gbps|
|r7iz.xlarge||4||32||Up to 12.5 Gbps||Up to 10 Gbps|
|r7iz.2xlarge||8||64||Up to 12.5 Gbps||Up to 10 Gbps|
|r7iz.4xlarge||16||128||Up to 12.5 Gbps||Up to 10 Gbps|
|r7iz.8xlarge||32||256||12.5 Gbps||10 Gbps|
|r7iz.12xlarge||48||384||25 Gbps||19 Gbps|
|r7iz.16xlarge||64||512||25 Gbps||20 Gbps|
|r7iz.32xlarge||128||1024||50 Gbps||40 Gbps|
As Veliswa shared in her post, the R7iz instances also include four built-in accelerators, and are available in two AWS regions.
Amazon Connect APIs for View Resources – A new set of View APIs allows you to programmatically create and manage the view resources (UI templates) used in the step-by-step guides that are displayed in the agent’s UI.
Daily Disbursements to Marketplace Sellers – Sellers can now set disbursement preferences and opt-in to receiving outstanding balances on a daily basis for increased flexibility, including the ability to match payments to existing accounting processes.
Enhanced Error Handling for AWS Step Functions – You can now construct detailed error messages in Step Functions Fail states, and you can set a maximum limit on retry intervals.
Amazon CloudWatch Logs RegEx Filtering – You can now use regular expressions in your Amazon CloudWatch Logs filter patterns. You can, for example, define a single filter that matches multiple IP subnets or HTTP status codes instead of having to use multiple filters, as was previously the case. Each filter pattern can have up to two regular expression patterns.
Amazon SageMaker – There’s a new (and quick) Studio setup experience, support for Multi Model Endpoints for PyTorch, and the ability to use SageMaker’s geospatial capabilities on GPU-based instances when using Notebooks.
X in Y – We launched existing services and instance types in new regions:
- ROSA in the Europe (Spain) Region.
- AWS NAT Gateway in the Los Angeles Local Zone us-west-2-lax-1a.
- Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) email receiving service in the US East (Ohio), Asia Pacific (Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo), Canada (Central), and Europe (Frankfurt, London) Regions.
- IAM roles last used and last accessed in AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.
- AWS Security Hub findings consolidation in AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.
- C6id instances in the Europe (London) Region.
