AWS CEO Andy Jassy explains huge bets in hybrid cloud

  • Amazon Web Services CEO Andy Jassy used his keynote at the AWS re:Invent conference on Tuesday to announce the introduction of several new products and services for the hybrid cloud market.
  • Hybrid cloud is a model that connects public cloud platforms like AWS with a customer’s own servers and data centers. 
  • Notably, Amazon Web Services spent years ignoring — and sometimes trashing — hybrid cloud computing, even as rivals like Microsoft, IBM, and Google have invested heavily in the technology. Jassy now slams those efforts as having “never lived up to the hype.”
  • At re:Invent this year, AWS announced smaller sizes of its Outposts devices, which allows customers to host the company’s cloud services from their own data centers.
  • It also announced that it would allow customers to host from their own servers Amazon Elastic Container Service and Elastic Kubernetes Service, developer tools that help manage cloud infrastructure.

Amazon’s Andy Jassy talks up AWS Outposts, Wavelength as the right edge for hybrid cloud

At the end of a three-hour keynote address for Amazon’s annual re:Invent conference, which is taking place virtually this year, Amazon Web Services chief executive Andy Jassy wrapped up with an extended discussion about edge computing and its role in hybrid computing.

“Hybrid is not just about whether its on-premise or in the cloud,” said Jassy. Instead, IT needs “the same APIs, the same control plane, the same tools, the same hardware they get in AWS regions,” said Jassy. He was referring to Amazon’s AWS Outposts, a rack of equipment deployed at a customer facility that is a fully-managed service from Amazon. 

Jassy said Amazon has made the Outposts offering easier to purchase now with new form factors, 1U and 2U rack units, versus an entire rack-size deployment.

Amazon Web Services announced on Tuesday that Boom Supersonic is going ‘all-in’ as a cloud-computing customer, which the aviation start-up says will power the design, development and manufacturing of its next-generation jet.

Boom founder and CEO Blake Scholl told CNBC that the deal with AWS represents his company deepening its relationship with Amazon, with Boom expanding its use of cloud-computing to “new high performance instances” that will “further upgrade our ability to run simulations rapidly and inexpensively.”

“We’ve been working with [AWS] behind the scenes for several years, with 53 million compute hours running virtual wind tunnel tests,” Scholl said.

Boom declined to the specify the length or value of the contract it signed with AWS. But the deal represents one of the first public moves by the Aerospace and Satellite Solutions unit that AWS established in June. The unit is

These two services, ECS for generalized container orchestration and EKS for that’s focused on Kubernetes will let customers use these popular AWS services on premises. Jassy said that some customers still want the same tools they use in the cloud on prem and this is designed to give it to them.

Speaking of ECS he said,  “I still have a lot of my containers that I need to run on premises as I’m making this transition to the cloud, and [these] people really want it to have the same management and deployment

A “relatively small addition of capacity” to the Amazon Kinesis real-time data processing service triggered a widespread Amazon Web Services outage last week, the company said in a detailed technical analysis over the weekend.

The addition of the new capacity “caused all of the servers in the fleet to exceed the maximum number of threads allowed by an operating system configuration,”  describing a cascade of resulting problems that took down thousands of sites and services.

The outage impacted online services from big tech companies such as AdobeRokuTwilioFlickrAutodesk, and others, including New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority and the Washington Post, which is owned by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, was also impacted by the outage.

It was an especially ill-timed incident for Amazon, coming just days before its annual AWS re:Invent cloud conference. Reliability has
