Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) now allows you to use your own publicly-routable IP addresses with AWS resources such as EC2 instances, Network Load Balancers, and NAT Gateways. After you bring your IPs to AWS, AWS will advertise your public IP addresses on the Internet. You will continue to have access to Amazon IP addresses and can choose to use your own IP addresses, Amazon’s IP addresses, or both with your AWS resources.

Your applications might use trusted IP addresses that are whitelisted by your partners and customers. With Bring Your Own IP, you can move these applications to AWS without requiring your partners and customers to change their IP address whitelists. Bring Your Own IP is also useful for applications such as commercial email services that rely on IP address reputation to allow traffic from your endpoints to reach intended recipients.

Bring Your Own IP is available for preview in the US West (Oregon) region. You can request access to this feature by completing this request form.

Amazon S3 now provides increased performance to support up to 3,500 requests per second to add data and 5,500 requests per second to retrieve data, which can save significant processing time for no additional charge. Each S3 prefix can support these request rates, making it simple to increase performance exponentially.

Customers in industries such as mining, energy, military, retail, and manufacturing use Snowball Edge to collect data in remote locations and ship these devices and data back to AWS with a standard freight carrier. These devices can also perform simple local pre-processing tasks using AWS Greengrass, AWS Lambda functions, and Amazon S3.

Starting today, Amazon Comprehend supports Syntax analysis —enabling customers to analyze text using tokenization and Parts of Speech (PoS). The Amazon Comprehend Syntax API allows customers to identify word boundaries and labels like nouns and adjectives within the text.  

Amazon Translate is a neural machine translation service that delivers fast, high-quality, and affordable language translation. Starting today, Amazon Translate is adding the following six new languages that are highly requested by customers: Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Turkish. These languages expand upon the existing six languages already available in Amazon Translate: Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Amazon Transcribe is an automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for you to add a speech-to-text capability to your applications. You can use Amazon Transcribe to create text transcripts of audio and video files. Coming soon, Amazon Transcribe will support a feature called channel synthesis to better handle audio where each speaker records on a different channel. For example, a stereo track with the interviewer is stored in the left and the interviewee on the right.

This Quick Start deploys McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud in less than one hour, using services such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS). The Quick Start also uses AWS best practices for common scalability, high availability, and security requirements.
