Amazon Chime, Amazon Detective, and Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL updates – We start this week with Amazon Chime, the video conferencing service from AWS, which I’m sure is getting a lot of use around the world right now. Amazon Chime now supports up to 250 attendees for any meeting hosted by a user with Amazon Chime pro permissions without any extra fees for the increased meeting size. It’s all retroactive too, so meetings don’t have to be updated or rescheduled to support the new limit.
Additional logic has also been added to automatically mute new attendees, disabled status change notifications and silence. Join and leave tones for any meeting with 25 or more attendees invited or present. Next up, Amazon Detective is now generally available. Amazon Detective is a service that makes it easy to analyze, investigate, and identify the root cause of security issues or suspicious activities in your account.
It does this by collecting and analyzing log data from your AWS resources such as VPC flow logs, cloud trail, and Guard Duty. It then uses machine learning, statistical analysis and graph theory to build interactive visualizations which show you how your users interact with your resources over time, which then lets you more efficiently investigate possible security issues.
It’s available in 14 regions, so be sure to check it out. Finally, today, Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL now supports major version 12. This will provide better management of indexing, improved petitioning capabilities and many other cool features. To use the new version, you can create a new database instance with just a few clicks in the AWS management console.
All right time for my patented quick fire updates before we find out who our guru of the week is. Amazon Elastic File System announces a 400% increase in read operations for general purpose mode file systems. AWS Storage Gateway has added audit logs for file gateway to address enterprise compliance requests. AWS Lambda now supports .net core 3.1. AWS Canada’s central region has added a third availability zone, bringing AWS’s global availability zones to 70.
The AWS tool kit for visual studio code now supports AWS step functions and Amazon SES or simple email service is now available in the Canada, London, and Sao Paulo regions.
