From the dozens of new announcements at 2020's AWS re:Invent, by far the two categories with the most announcements have been in the areas of compute and machine learning. While attempting to summarize those here would not do them justice, I'd like to highlight three of the most interesting and eye-popping ones as we begin 2021.
The company needed flexible, short-term compute resources to support intensive training for a global network of installation partners. By working with InterVision to access resources hosted in the public cloud and by using its own private cloud resources, the client succeeded in cutting capital expenses, reducing operational costs, increasing productivity and enhancing competitive advantage.
An application delivery networking vendor had an increased desire to accelerate deployment lifecycles and deliver more features quickly to their community site, which required the company's development team to quickly improve the site's manageability, scalability and lifecycle management.
