 As the year comes to a close, we wanted to take the opportunity to share and reflect on some of the exciting news recently announced at AWS re:Invent  the world’s largest gathering of the global AWS community  and the developments we’re most excited about for our customers heading into 2019.

 As seven-year re:Invent veterans, we’ve seen both the conference and industry grow (and eventually explode) with excitement, and this year was no exception. One of only 36 Premier-tier AWS Partners in North America – and the only one with a focus on HPC and Windows Workloads – we’re thrilled to see that AWS is continuing to enhance and improve their existing products while simultaneously releasing new technologies and services. From FSx, EFA and SFTP for S3 to growing buzz around AI/ML powered by HPC, we’re uniquely positioned to help customers discern which new offerings are the best fit for their organization.

AWS Announcements

AWS announced a number of innovative new services and capabilities that serve both existing and new Six Nines customers, including for Machine Learning (new EC2 GPU instances), VPC sharing (AWS Transit Gateway), storage (Amazon FSx, Amazon S3 Intelligent-Tiering), enhanced database capabilities (Amazon Aurora Global Database), building more quickly on AWS (AWS Control Tower, AWS Security Hub) and EFA – enabling any true MPI function to work on AWS.

With the combination of Hub VPC and the new EC2 “n” instance, Amazon is really stepping up their networking game. They’re working hard to distance themselves with competitors as well as remove disparities between on-premises and cloud workloads for even the most demanding applications.

Additionally, AWS announced its new Well Architected Partner Program and Tool, of which Six Nines is proud to be one of a select number of early launch partners.

Trendspotting at re:Invent -- AI/ML and HPC

Two of the most buzzworthy topics at this year’s re:Invent were Artificial Intelligence (AI) / Machine Learning (ML) and High Performance Computing (HPC), which fall directly in line with Six Nines’ core expertise, custom HPC solutions and offerings. There was a level of enthusiasm and focus around HPC that we’ve not seen before, specifically related to HPC powering AI/ML. We’re also excited to see AWS growing their focus on Windows Workloads as well as serverless and serverless applications. Looking ahead to 2019, it’s clear that AI/ML will only get bigger as AWS continues to add more quivers to its arrows with its HPC product updates and announcements.
