6. Amazon Is Hiring Staff To Run And Support Sentinel 

In job listings posted to third-party job websites in recent months, AWS referred to an "AWS Sentinel support product offering" and a "Sentinel operations team," according to cached versions of those pages in Google search results. 

Those listings have since been edited to read "AWS Services" instead of "Sentinel." AWS typically comes up with thoughtful and original names for its products, but this completely simple, even redundant approach would seem to go against that pattern. 

AWS also apparently intends to make Sentinel available in a variety of geographical locations. In one job listing for a senior manager, the cloud vendor lists as a requirement the ability to "ensure the AWS Services support product offering reflects the needs of the regional market." 

Sentinel is said to exist because big AWS multinational customers want it, and so it would make sense that a senior position involved in supporting the product would need to be savvy enough to know what matters most to customers in certain geographical regions.
