AWS Server Migration Service (SMS) is now available to customers in the AWS US West (Oregon), US East (Ohio), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Seoul), and Asia Pacific (Mumbai) regions. AWS Server Migration Service (SMS) is an agentless service which makes it easier and faster for you to migrate thousands of on-premises workloads to AWS. AWS SMS allows you to automate, schedule, and track incremental replications of live server volumes, making it easier for you to coordinate large-scale server migrations. 

Amazon WorkSpaces now allows you to integrate with your on-premises Microsoft Active Directory using an interforest trust with the AWS Directory Service for Microsoft Active Directory (Enterprise Edition), also called AWS Microsoft AD. By establishing a single interforest trust relationship, you can assign Amazon WorkSpaces for users in any of your on-premises domains. AWS Microsoft AD automatically discovers and routes authentication requests to the correct domain controller, which means that your users can use their existing Microsoft Active Directory credentials to log in to their WorkSpaces, without having to specify their domain name.

You can now limit the maximum number of device minutes that your AWS Device Farm test runs can use by setting a timeout on each device. You can also request that your maximum timeout be extended beyond the default of 60 minutes, allowing you to run longer workloads on real Android and iOS devices in the AWS Cloud. If execution exceeds your timeout, execution on that device will be forcibly stopped, and partial results will be available if possible.

We are pleased to announce support for three new pre-defined security policies ELBSecurityPolicy-TLS-1-1-2017-01, ELBSecurityPolicy-TLS-1-2-2017-01 and a default security policy, ELBSecurityPolicy-2016-08 for the Application Load Balancer to support your TLS workloads. The new policies give you the flexibility to pick the TLS ciphers and protocols for your workloads on the Application Load Balancer.
