Garman reiterated that AWS is working on a VMware version of Outposts – expected in the second half of the year. This will likely lead to a strange situation where Amazon will sell VMware into enterprise data centres.

Comic Relief switched from multi-cloud to serverless with AWS and saw a 93% cost reduction
As a team, going serverless has given us a lot more velocity, we can rapidly release, we can test the same infrastructure we’re deploying in production, in a pull request environment, in a staging environment, we can rapidly retest ideas- and every developer can do that because we’re using Lambda to load test, so the power it gives you as a developer and engineering team is pretty amazing.

AWS For Everyone: New clues emerge about Amazon's secretive low-code/no-code project
> Earlier reports indicated that AWS has for some time been working on a cloud service that would allow people with little to no software development experience create simple business applications without having to call up the IT department, but it wasn’t clear what that entailed.

AWS, MongoDB, and the Economic Realities of Open Source
> This leaves MongoDB Inc. not unlike the record companies after the advent of downloads: what they sold was not software but rather the tools that made that software usable, but those tools are increasingly obsolete as computing moves to the cloud. And now AWS is selling what enterprises really want.

You wait for one IT giant to show up with its sales figures, then two come at once: Red Hat, Oracle
Still swinging:

> "Jeff Bezos gave the command, 'I want to get off the Oracle database.' And they've been working on this for a few years to try to get off Oracle Database, and get on to the Amazon databases. It's taken Amazon, which is dedicated to doing this, several years, and they are not there yet. Nobody else is going to go through that forced march, to get onto Amazon databases, if Amazon can't even get there without this effort."

AWS’s Snowball Edge
A private cloud box from Amazon:

> The Snowball Edge Compute Optimized with GPU includes an on-board GPU that you can use to do real-time full-motion video analysis & processing, machine learning inferencing, and other highly parallel compute-intensive work. You can launch an sbe-g instance to gain access to the GPU.

It has Lamda and EC2 capability, targeted at data
manipulation and getting it into (and out of?) AWS. There’s a lot of IoT stuff in AWS now, opening their platform up to things like smart cities, power grid management, and thermostats and lights and shit.

This is the Amazon everyone should have feared — and it has nothing to do with its retail business
“the massive online retailer once again posted its largest quarterly profit in history — $2.5 billion for the quarter — on the back of two businesses that were afterthoughts just a few years ago: Amazon Web Services, its cloud computing unit, as well as its fast-growing advertising business.”

Good charts, too.

"AWS has been trying to peel off those Oracle workloads and make them easier to extract."

Good coverage and commentary on the recent Google Cloud stuff, including this marketshare sum-up:

"Enterprise service, AWS, which has a network of more than 30,000 enterprise end users, was the most cited (56.6% of survey respondents) for multi-tenant IaaS interest in 2015, with Microsoft's Azure trailing at 42.7%. AWS claims over one million active customers in 190 countries, and reports that it has a roughly $10bn run rate."

DOD Certifies AWS Cloud for 'Sensitive' Data
Early on, vendors who wanted to compete with AWS would speak to the idea of an “enterprise cloud.” All the US Federal activity that AWS had been up to - including that $600m private cloud for the CIA - seems to nullify most of that. I think what will be more important is targeting the type of application supported: old school, three tier app that are statefull everywhere, or cloud native, microservices apps that are stateless (shoving statefullness of to caches and databases).

The New Stack Analysts: Azure Rising? - YouTube
I was on The New Stack Analyst podcast today along with Nancy Gohring, one of the tech reports who’s work I’ve always enjoyed, and, of course, Alex Williams. We discuss Nancy’s recent piece on Azure cloud seeming to grow faster than Amazon’s cloud, the problem with figuring comparisons like this out, some different scenarios for big cloud vendor success and failure based on where the packaged software market goes, and then DaaS and WaaS. The last is a topic I know less about than I’d like, but that never stops a analyst from talking about a topic…at length. Pretty wide-ranging topics, but all trying to sort through what “IT” is becoming with all this cloud nonsense running around. My connection was slow so I shut down my video. Enjoy milkman meets pie man.

Infor bets big on Amazon Web Services for cloud ERP | CITEworld
A few weeks ago, I talked with Chris Kanaracus for his story on Infor moving parts of their application portfolio to Amazon Web Services. Chris said this looked like a pretty strong endorsement for using AWS, and asked for my thoughts, which were: Yes, this a nice vote a confidence for AWS. However, I think most SaaS companies would look at AWS as capable of being used like this. There might be questions about pricing long-term, but technologically it’s just a stack of middleware running on a bunch of servers. The larger bet by Infor is around that: do they want to align their application to Amazon’s services and cloud-based middleware? (Maybe they’re not and just using raw EC2, S3, etc…but you’d assume they’d want to use things like Red Shift and other services/middleware offered by Amazon). What with the pricing war that Google is announcing right now (reducing cloud prices by 32% across the board for it’s Google Cloud offering, and deeper for some other services), Infor has to be thinking that the costs will be cheap. The longer-term hope is that their agility - measured by how fast they can code and releases features to their existing products, as well as modify how current features work - will increase as well. We all know in our guts that after 4-5 years, software is incredibly hard to change due to the code getting stale, supporting middleware being antiquated, and the difficulty of shifting around the underlying infrastructure. I’m not sure “cloud” will solve those problem, but hopefully it’ll make it a bit better. (Enterprises tend to be more leery of relying on cloud and are feeding the current interest in “private cloud”, along with vendors who’d love to preserve that market. Enterprise FUD around public cloud is mostly because their needs are much different than ISVs/SaaSes: enterprises have 100’s, if not 1,000’s of applications behind their firewall that must be supported that may be technologically, culturally, or otherwise incompatible due to drivers like policies and regulations.)

AWS opens its desktop as a service to the market, joins the growing DaaS fray
Our report on Amazon WorkSpaces is up. The full report is available for 451 research clients, but here’s the 451 Take. When it comes to making things cheap, few companies have the zeal and credibility of Amazon. While new, mostly non-Microsoft devices are rapidly changing and fragmenting the end-user device market, there’s still a palpable need to support existing Windows applications. DaaS seems like a viable ‘green screen’ strategy for supporting these corporate applications on new devices. While some of the early reviews of Amazon WorkSpaces have surfaced, the usual bucket of 1.0 hiccups, like speed and locale shenanigans, will undoubtedly be ironed out. The DaaS space is just emerging as a broad market, and we predict many players on this scene, each hopefully figuring out new and unique ways to differentiate. You can always apply for a free trial to take a test run behind the paywall.

Moz's 2013 Year in Review: More Than You Ever Wanted to Know About Moz, and Then Even More - Moz
We spent part of 2012 and all of 2013 building a private cloud in Virginia, Washington, and mostly Texas. This was a big bet with over $4 million in capital lease obligations on the line, and the good news is that it’s starting to pay off. On a cash basis, we spent $6.2 million at Amazon Web Services, and a mere $2.8 million on our own data centers. The business impact is profound. We’re spending less and have improved reliability and efficiency. Our gross profit margin had eroded to ~64%, and as of December, it’s approaching 74%. We’re shooting for 80 %, and I know we’ll get there in 2014. About $51,000/month on AWS for those who like to track these things by month. Spotted by Nancy Gohring.

Amazon CIA cloud row: US judge slaps down IBM as 'manipulative', inferior • The Register
The contentious section asked the parties to price up a fault-tolerant cluster of 1,000s of commodity servers running a MapReduce scatter-gather job on about 100TB of data with a 100 per cent duty cycle. In other words, the CIA wanted Amazon and IBM to cost out a cloud cluster that would run MapReduce continuously for a year so spies could prod large chunks of data.
