  1. Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for Oracle now supports the October 2023 Release Update (RU) for Oracle Database versions 19c and 21c. View the full article
  2. The entire AWS News Blog team is fully focused on writing posts to announce the new services and features during our annual customer conference in Las Vegas, AWS re:Invent! And while we prepare content for you to read, our services teams continue to innovate. Here is my summary of last week’s launches. Last week’s launches Here are some of the launches that captured my attention: Amazon CodeCatalyst – You can now add a cron expression to trigger a CI/CD workflow, providing a way to start workflows at set times. CodeCatalyst is a unified development service that integrates a project’s collaboration tools, CI/CD pipelines, and development and deployment environments. Amazon Route53 – You can now route your customer’s traffic to their closest AWS Local Zones to improve application performance for latency-sensitive workloads. Learn more about geoproximity routing in the Route53 documentation. Amazon RDS – The root certificates we use to sign your databases’ TLS certificates will expire in 2024. You must generate new certificates for your databases before the expiration date. This blog post details the procedure step by step. The new root certificates we generated are valid for the next 40 years for RSA2048 and 100 years for the RSA4098 and ECC384. It is likely this is the last time in your professional career that you are obliged to renew your database certificates for AWS. Amazon MSK – Replicating Kafka clusters at scale is difficult and often involves managing the infrastructure and the replication solution by yourself. We launched Amazon MSK Replicator, a fully managed replication solution for your Kafka clusters, in the same or across multiple AWS Regions. Amazon CodeWhisperer – We launched a preview for an upcoming capability of Amazon CodeWhisperer Professional. You can now train CodeWhisperer on your private code base. It allows you to give your organization’s developers more relevant suggestions to better assist them in their day-to-day coding against your organization’s private libraries and frameworks. Amazon EC2 – The seventh generation of memory-optimized EC2 instances is available (R7i). These instances use the 4th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processors (Sapphire Rapids). This family of instances provides up to 192 vCPU and 1,536 GB of memory. They are well-suited for memory-intensive applications such as in-memory databases or caches. X in Y – We launched existing services and instance types in additional Regions: Amazon Bedrock is now available in Europe (Frankfurt). This is important for customers in Europe because they often have to ensure their data stays in the European Union. You can now embed generative AI functionalities and access to large language models in your applications with the assurance that the prompts and customizations will stay in Europe. Amazon EC2 extended its footprint for multiple families of instances: m6gd instances are now available in Canada (Central) and South America (São Paulo), c6a in Canada (Central), m6a in Canada (Central) and Europe (Milan), and r6a instances in US West (N. California) and Asia Pacific (Singapore). Finally, m6id instances are now available in Europe (Zurich). Amazon EMR managed scaling is now available in Asia Pacific (Jakarta). Other AWS news Here are some other blog posts and news items that you might like: The Community.AWS blog has new posts to teach you how to integrate Amazon Bedrock inside your Java and Go applications, and my colleague Brooke wrote a survival guide for re:Invent first-timers. The Official AWS Podcast – Listen each week for updates on the latest AWS news and deep dives into exciting use cases. There are also official AWS podcasts in several languages. Check out the ones in French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

AWS Innovate: Every Application Edition – Join our free online conference to explore cutting-edge ways to enhance security and reliability, optimize performance on a budget, speed up application development, and revolutionize your applications with generative AI. Register for AWS Innovate Online Asia Pacific & Japan on October 26. AWS re:Invent (November 27 – December 1) – Join us to hear the latest from AWS, learn from experts, and connect with the global cloud community. Browse the session catalog and attendee guides and check out the re:Invent highlights for generative AI. You can browse all upcoming in-person and virtual events. And that’s all for me today. I’ll go back writing my re:Invent blog posts. Check back next Monday for another Weekly Roundup! -- seb This post is part of our Weekly Roundup series.

  3. Don’t be surprised if you have seen the Certificate Update in the Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) console. If you use or plan to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) with certificate verification to connect to your database instances of Amazon RDS for MySQL, MariaDB, SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and Amazon Aurora, it means you should rotate new certificate authority (CA) certificates in both your DB instances and application before the root certificate expires. Most SSL/TLS certificates (rds-ca-2019) for your DB instances will expire in 2024 after the certificate update in 2020. In December 2022, we released new CA certificates that are valid for 40 years (rds-ca-rsa2048-g1) and 100 years (rds-ca-rsa4096-g1 and rds-ca-ecc384-g1). So, if you rotate your CA certificates, you don’t need to do It again for a long time... View the full article
  4. Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) now supports a Dedicated Log Volume for PostgreSQL, MySQL, and MariaDB databases. An Amazon RDS Dedicated Log Volume allows customers to select a configuration where the most latency sensitive components of their database, the transaction logs, are stored in a separate, dedicated volume. Dedicated Log Volumes work with Provisioned IOPS storage and are recommended for databases with 5,000 GiB or more of allocated storage. View the full article

S3 now support datasets that are replicated across multiple AWS accounts with cross-account support for S3 Multi-Region Access Points. You can now create and configure replication rules to automatically replicate S3 objects from one AWS Outpost to another. Amazon S3 has also simplified private connectivity from on-premises networks: with private DNS for S3, on-premises applications can use AWS PrivateLink to access S3 over an interface endpoint, while requests from your in-VPC applications access S3 using gateway endpoints. We released Mountpoint for Amazon S3, a high performance open source file client. Read more in the blog.
