AWS Summit Keynote: Sivasubramanian Unveils New Offers
Amazon Web Services launched a slew of offerings at its AWS Summit event today in San Francisco around its Aurora Serverless, IoT TwinMaker, Amplify Studio and AWS Glue cloud solutions.
Swami Sivasubramanian, vice president of data, analytics, and machine learning services at AWS, unveiled the new innovations during his keynote address—touting AWS’ strategy of hiring builders and inventors.
“We hire builders who are always thinking about inventing on behalf of customers, looking for ways to simplify, and they do not accept the premise that we have to build things a certain way because this is how things are always done,” said Sivasubramanian on stage during his AWS Summit keynote speech.
New product launches on Thursday revolved around AWS’ cloud relational database solution Aurora; AWS IoT TwinMaker, which creates digital twins of real-world systems along with management capabilities; Amplify Studio for building and shipping web and mobile applications at speed; and AWS Glue for serverless data integration.
“The benefits of the cloud are so strong that virtually every workload and application is either running in the cloud today, or it’s moving to the cloud as quickly as possible. And analytics and big data workloads are no exception,” said Sivasubramanian. “The opportunity to analyze data at very large scale, at speed and low cost, are second to none on AWS.”
Sivasubramanian first joined Amazon in 2006, rising from the rank of principal engineer to general manager of AWS’ NoSQL and analytics business within a few years. He became one of AWS’ top executives for machine learning in 2017, before taking on his current role of managing AWS’ database, analytics and machine learning services.
Here is what Sivasubramanian said on stage during his keynote at AWS Summit regarding the launch of five new offerings.
