In addition to its new managed ledger database, Amazon also revealed that it had created its own managed blockchain service called AWS Managed Blockchain which also works with QLDB. The company is also releasing a minimum viable cloud framework for AWS to help clients establish foundational infrastructure. "You'll be able to run software on that, starting with the VMware software, that allows you to manage your presence on-premises and across the cloud", Jassy said.

While the chip was announced today, AWS CEO Andy Jassy indicated it won't actually be available until next year.

By leveraging AWS Security Hub, Check Point can provide a almost seamless experience to customers in providing additional protection to their AWS environments against advanced cyber-threats in real time and mitigating compliance risks at any scale.

The second product announced by Amazon was the AWS Managed Blockchain.

Outpost delvers racks of AWS compute and storage with the ability to run services like Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) on this AWS-designed infrastructure.

AWS Outposts will allow enterprise customers that require on-premises infrastructure to run AWS cloud infrastructure in their own data centre. AWS on its website commented on its managed blockchain service informing on how it will operate.

With machine learning of the key areas that AWS is focusing on over the coming years, it should be interestign to see if more fun offerings like the DeepRacer will be on the way.

"There just isn't a lot of value in that type of on-premises offering and that's why these solutions aren't getting much traction", he added. They told us they want an extension of their AWS or VMware Cloud on AWS environment on-premises, using the same hardware we're using, the same interfaces, the same APIs, the same instant access to the latest AWS capabilities the minute they become available, and they don't want to manage hardware or software.

Amazon, which is starting with its own hardware, will deliver and install Outposts at customers' facilities and then provide maintenance, fix the hardware and automatically update the software.

That fact may be as important a motivator for Outposts' debut as customer demand.

"Building a scalable blockchain network with existing technologies is just too hard today, and that's why customers pay expensive consultants to help them", said Rahul Pathak, General Manager, Amazon Blockchain at AWS.

VMware said that hybrid cloud service lets customers migrate VMware-based workloads to the cloud. Amazon Personalize is a real-time personalization and recommendation service.

"This is a technology that has been nearly completely out of reach to all but the most well-funded and -motivated organizations", the AWS AI programs leader Matt Wood said on November 28, when the DeepRacer was launched during the AWS re:Invent 2018 in Las Vegas, the United States.
