Everything we learned at AWS re:Invent 2018

Everything we learned at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas last week


Every year AWS announces a raft of small upgrades to its cloud products and services portfolio during its re:Invent conference in Las Vegas, often making it tricky to nail down a prevailing theme or a 'big' announcement.

This year was no different, with every day sprinkled with announcements, from a new service to ease data transfer from satellites to ground stations, to some more incremental updates to existing services, like three new EC2 instances or updates to the SageMaker machine learning platform.

That doesn't mean that the vendor was losing its lustre however, with some major step changes in the areas of blockchain, hybrid cloud, serverless computing and machine learning all announced from the stage in Las Vegas last week. Here's what we learned.
