Slack Goes After Email With ‘Connect DM’ — Opening Up Chats With Folks Outside Your Company

An anonymous reader shares a report: Slack is useful to connect with your teammates and avoid sending them emails for things that can be discussed quickly through a chat. However, to talk to a person from a client or partner organization whom you interact with regularly, you’d need to email them and maybe even schedule a meeting or call them to check a trivial detail. Now, Slack is solving that problem by introducing a new feature called Connect DMs that’ll let you chat with someone from outside your organization through just a few clicks. This sounds like an email but in a chat format. In June, the company introduced Slack Connect, a way for multiple companies to have a joint slack channel. It said that over 56,000 organizations have been using this feature after the launch, and Slack Connect DM is the next step of that. The implementation is easy:

While Best Buy store listings were soon found by enterprising fans, those were eventually taken down, but they were followed by nonexclusive versions at Amazon: $90 for the normal trilogy, spread across nine Blu-ray discs, or $140 for a “gift set” version, which collects all of the normal cases in a larger, book-like case that may or may not include a replica of the One Ring.
Whichever set you buy, you can

New – Redis 6 Compatibility for Amazon ElastiCache

After the last Redis 5.0 compatibility for Amazon ElastiCache, there has been lots of improvements to Amazon ElastiCache for Redis including upstream supports such as 5.0.6.
Earlier this year, we announced Global Datastore for Redis that lets you replicate a cluster in one region to clusters in up to two other regions. Recently we improved your ability to monitor your Redis fleet by enabling 18 additional engine and node-level CloudWatch metrics. Also, we added support for resource-level permission policies, allowing you to assign AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) principal permissions to specific ElastiCache resource or resources.
Today, I am happy to announce Redis 6 compatibility to Amazon ElastiCache for Redis. This release brings several new and important features to Amazon ElastiCache for Redis:
