Amazon Web Services’ Re:Invent cloud event is this month, and already I’m getting emails around announcements. Here are the three key trends that will be highlighted not only at the show but in the broader world of cloud providers and users in the next few months.
1. An updated tactical push from AWS
We’ll see many tactical announcements around every topic, including security monitoring services, better service discovery, and better scaling algorithms.
The tactical features that pop up continuously from AWS typically align to customer requests. Thus, AWS — like Google and Microsoft — is doing a fair job at keeping an eye on the current use cases for its technology and, true to the gods of agile and devops, are pushing those features into its cloud services quickly.
