AWS Elemental MediaStore is a video origination and storage service that offers the high performance, predictable low latency, and immediate consistency required for live streaming media combined with the security and durability AWS offers across its services. MediaStore offers an inexpensive method for pass-through and low-latency segmented video content delivery, with pay-as-you-go pricing.

AWS Systems Manager now supports taking action for Automation step failure by allowing branching to another step within the Automation Document. This feature allows customers to perform graceful exits, send notifications, and a variety of clean up actions when an automation step fails. For example, when an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) update automation step fails midway, the customer can now call for automation to take a snapshot, close the EC2 instance, notify admin, and exit gracefully. Previously, there were only two choices, “Continue” and “Abort” upon failure of a step.

This Quick Start builds a highly available, secure Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) Egress Filtering service on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in about 10 minutes. It automatically deploys an Aviatrix Controller for enabling Egress Filtering in a new or existing virtual private cloud (VPC). You can connect to VPCs in the AWS Cloud with enhanced security, and access your Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, applications, and services.  

Amazon Polly is a service that turns texts into lifelike speech, allowing you to create applications that talk, and build entirely new categories of speech-enabled applications. Starting today, you can put up to 100,000 characters in an input text using the new asynchronous synthesis task and store the output files in S3. This greatly simplifies the process of voicing long form content like news articles and documents.

Today, AWS AppSync has released a new flow for provisioning a GraphQL endpoint. Customers can now model logical types and automatically create resolvers along with Amazon DynamoDB tables without needing to first write a GraphQL schema. The process includes a new query and filtering system that allows logical comparisons (greater than, contains, etc.) against fields in a schema without requiring any coding from the developer.
