Originalwortlaut heute zu den Web Services (AWS):
AWS announced Amazon Chime, a unified communications service that makes meetings easier and more efficient than ever before.

AWS currently operates 42 Availability Zones across 16 infrastructure regions worldwide, with another five Availability Zones across two AWS Regions in France and China expected to come online this year.
Recent AWS enterprise customer highlights include: Live Nation, the world’s leading live entertainment and ticketing company, announced it is going “all-in” on AWS; Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc., the parent company of Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, migrated their business-critical mobile applications, e-commerce websites, and key corporate IT infrastructure applications to AWS; HERE Technologies, a leading global provider of maps and location services, disclosed that AWS is its preferred cloud infrastructure provider and continues to expand its use of AWS to power its new Open Location Platform services; Liberty Mutual announced it is using AWS to speed implementation of a new state-of-the-art business platform to quickly bring new products and capabilities to their customers and operations; and Snap, Inc. expanded their use of AWS and announced a new, enterprise agreement to use $1 billion of AWS services over the next five years.
AWS launched Redshift Spectrum, a new feature of Amazon Redshift that allows customers to run queries on exabytes (1 exabyte = 1,000 petabytes) of data in Amazon S3 just as easily as they run queries against petabytes of data stored in their Amazon Redshift data warehouse. Redshift Spectrum uses the same SQL as Amazon Redshift and scales query processing across thousands of nodes to deliver fast results — even with large data sets and complex queries. For example, a complex query on an exabyte of data using 1,000 notes and the Hive Query Language would take five years. With Amazon Redshift Spectrum, the same query takes just 155 seconds.
AWS announced Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX), a fully-managed, highly available, in-memory cache that can reduce Amazon DynamoDB response times from milliseconds to microseconds, even at millions of requests per second. With DAX, customers using DynamoDB for mobile, web, gaming, ad tech, IoT, and many other types of applications can achieve 10x faster query performance.
AWS announced that customers have migrated more than 23,000 databases using the AWS Database Migration Service since it became generally available in 2016.
