Amazon ElastiCache for Redis is now FedRAMP authorized with a Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) at the High Impact Level provided by the Joint Authorization Board (JAB). United States government customers and their partners can now use the latest version of ElastiCache for Redis to process and store their FedRAMP systems, data, and mission-critical, high-impact workloads in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region, and at moderate impact level in AWS US East/West Regions.

Amazon CloudWatch Metrics for Amazon S3 now includes storage metrics for Amazon Glacier and S3 OneZone-Infrequent Access (S3 One Zone-IA) storage classes in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region. Storage that has been uploaded to S3 One Zone-IA or transitioned to S3 One Zone-IA or Amazon Glacier from S3 Standard or S3 Standard-IA storage classes using S3 Lifecycle policies will be available in CloudWatch storage metrics. These storage metrics will also include object overhead bytes applied to objects in Amazon Glacier and small objects in S3 Standard-IA and S3 One Zone-IA.

Amazon SageMaker now supports a new HTTP header for the InvokeEndpoint API action called CustomAttributes, which can be used to provide additional information about an inference request or response. Using this header, it is easy to pass custom information such as trace ID, application specific identifier or other metadata to the inference request or response. This will help customers keep track of their requests or responses for audits or tracking metrics.

AWS Glue now supports data encryption at rest for ETL jobs and development endpoints. You can configure ETL jobs and development endpoints to use AWS Key Management Service (KMS) keys to write encrypted data at rest. You can also encrypt the metadata stored in the Glue Data Catalog using keys that you manage with AWS KMS. Additionally, you can use AWS KMS keys to encrypt job bookmarks and the logs generated by crawlers and ETL jobs.

AWS WAF now supports full logging of all web requests inspected by the service. Customers can store these logs in Amazon S3 for compliance and auditing needs as well as use them for debugging and additional forensics. The logs will help customers understand why certain rules are triggered and why certain web requests are blocked. Customers can also integrate the logs with their SIEM and log analysis tools. 

The Amazon Kinesis Video Streams Producer SDK is now available for Microsoft Windows to help you stream video into AWS from sources such as webcams, USB cameras, or RTSP (network) cameras connected to your Microsoft Windows machine.

Amazon Kinesis Video Streams makes it easy to securely stream video from millions of connected devices to AWS for real-time machine learning (ML), storage, and batch-oriented processing and analytics. It also durably stores, encrypts, and indexes video data in your streams, and allows you to access your data through easy-to-use APIs.

Amazon Kinesis Video Streams provides Producer SDKs in C++ and Java that you can build, configure, and install on devices. This software makes it easier to securely and reliably stream video into AWS frame-by-frame in real-time. In addition to Mac OS, Android, Linux, and Raspbian, the C++ Producer SDK is now also available for Microsoft Windows. Developers can use the Minimal GNU for Windows (MinGW) or the Microsoft Visual Studio C++ Compiler (MSVC) to build the producer SDK from source and start streaming from cameras connected to a Microsoft Windows machine. Additionally, we have also packaged the Producer SDK GStreamer Plug-in for Windows as a Docker image so you can simply do a Docker pull and get started with streaming video in minutes. Please refer the developer documentation to learn more.
