New – Building a Continuous Integration Workflow with Step Functions and AWS CodeBuild

Automating your software build is an important step to adopt DevOps best practices. To help you with that, we built AWS CodeBuild, a fully managed continuous integration service that compiles source code, runs tests, and produces packages that are ready for deployment.
However, there are so many possible customizations in our customers’ build processes, and we have seen developers spend time in creating their own custom workflows to coordinate the different activities required by their software build. For example, you may want to run, or not, some tests, or skip static analysis of your code when you need to deploy a quick fix. Depending on the results of your unit tests, you may want to take different actions, or be notified via SNS.
To simplify that, we are launching today a new AWS Step Functions service integration with CodeBuild. Now, during the execution of a state machine, you can start or stop a build, get build report summaries,

General Availability of UltraWarm for Amazon Elasticsearch Service

Today, we are happy to announce the general availability of UltraWarm for Amazon Elasticsearch Service.
This new low-cost storage tier provides fast, interactive analytics on up to three petabytes of log data at one-tenth of the cost of the current Amazon Elasticsearch Service storage tier.
UltraWarm, complements the existing Amazon Elasticsearch Service hot storage tier by providing less expensive storage for older and less-frequently accessed data while still ensuring that snappy, interactive experience that Amazon Elasticsearch Service customers have come to expect. Amazon Elasticsearch Service stores data in Amazon S3 while using custom, highly-optimized nodes, purpose-built on the AWS Nitro System, to cache, pre-fetch, and query that data.
There are many use cases for the Amazon Elasticsearch Service, from building a search system for your website, storing, and analyzing data from application or infrastructure logs. We think this new storage tier will work particularly well for customers that have large

New – Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) for VPC Endpoints

Although chat and messaging applications have been popular, the email has retained its place as a ubiquitous channel with the highest Return on Investment (ROI) because of its low barrier to entry, affordability and ability to target specific recipients. To ensure that organization’s marketing and transactional messages are received by the end customer in a timely manner and to drive deeper engagement with them, you need to partner with a mature and trusted email service provider that has built specialized expertise in delivering email at scale.
Amazon Simple Email Services(SES) has been the trustworthy, flexible and affordable email service provider for developers and digital marketers since 2011. Amazon SES is a reliable, cost-effective service for businesses of all sizes that use email to keep in contact with their customers. Many businesses operate in industries that are highly secure and have strict security policies. So we have enhanced security and compliance

AWS Chatbot – ChatOps for Slack and Chime

Last year, my colleague Ilya Bezdelev wrote Introducing AWS Chatbot: ChatOps for AWS to launch the public beta of AWS Chatbot. He also participated in the re:Invent 2019 Launchpad and did an in-depth AWS Chatbot demo:

In his initial post, Ilya showed you how you can practice ChatOps within Amazon Chime or Slack, receiving AWS notifications and executing commands in an environment that is intrinsically collaborative. In a later post, Running AWS commands from Slack using AWS Chatbot, Ilya showed how to configure AWS Chatbot in a Slack channel, display CloudWatch alarms, describe AWS resources, invoke a Lambda function and retrieve the logs, and create an AWS Support case. My colleagues Erin Carlson and Matt Cowsert wrote about AWS Budgets Integration with Chatbot and walked through the process of setting up AWS Budget alerts and arranging for notifications from within AWS Chatbot. Finally, Anushri Anwekar showed how to Receive

Amazon Elastic Container Service now supports Amazon EFS file systems

It has only been five years since Jeff wrote on this blog about the launch of the Amazon Elastic Container Service. I remember reading that post and thinking how exotic and unusual containers sounded. Fast forward just five years, and containers are an everyday part of most developers lives, but whilst customers are increasingly adopting container orchestrators such as ECS, there are still some types of applications that have been hard to move into this containerized world.
Customers building applications that require data persistence or shared storage have faced a challenge since containers are temporary in nature. As containers are scaled in and out dynamically, any local data is lost as containers are terminated. Today we are changing that for ECS by launching support for Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) file systems. Both containers running on ECS and AWS Fargate will be able to use Amazon Elastic File System (EFS).

Mitchell Hamline suspends in-person classes through April 3

Update, March 12, 2020
In response to health concerns related to COVID-19, Mitchell Hamline School of Law is suspending in-person classes through April 3. There are no known cases of COVID-19 at Mitchell Hamline, but the school is taking this step to help mitigate the effects of the disease on our campus. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and will make decisions for April and beyond as more information becomes available.

Students in Mitchell Hamline’s on-campus programs are currently on spring break. Instead of returning to campus for classes on Monday, March 16, those students will resume classes remotely starting on Wednesday, March 18. Though there will not be classes in the building, the building will remain open for students to use the library or other facilities. The only exception would be students who recently traveled to an area with widespread outbreaks of the disease or who are showing signs

New – T3 Instances on Dedicated Single-Tenant Hardware

T3 instances use a burst pricing model that allows you to host general purpose workloads at low cost, with access to sustainable, full-core performance when needed. You can choose from seven different sizes and receive an assured baseline amount of processing power, courtesy of custom high frequency Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors.
Our customers use them to host many different types of production and development workloads including microservices, small and medium databases, and virtual desktops. Some of our customers launch large fleets of T3 instances and use them to test applications in a wide range of conditions, environments, and configurations.
We launched the first EC2 Dedicated Instances way back in 2011. Dedicated Instances run on single-tenant hardware, providing physical isolation from instances that belong to other AWS accounts. Our customers use Dedicated Instances to further their compliance goals (PCI, SOX, FISMA, and so forth), and also use them to run software

New for Amazon EFS – IAM Authorization and Access Points

When building or migrating applications, we often need to share data across multiple compute nodes. Many applications use file APIs and Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) makes it easy to use those applications on AWS, providing a scalable, fully managed Network File System (NFS) that you can access from other AWS services and on-premises resources.
EFS scales on demand from zero to petabytes with no disruptions, growing and shrinking automatically as you add and remove files, eliminating the need to provision and manage capacity. By using it, you get strong file system consistency across 3 Availability Zones. EFS performance scales with the amount of data stored, with the option to provision the throughput you need.
Last year, the EFS team focused on optimizing costs with the introduction of the EFS Infrequent Access (IA) storage class, with storage prices up to 92% lower compared to EFS Standard. You can quickly start reducing your costs by
