Features eagerly awaited by the cloud community

Whereas re:Inventthe major annual gathering ofAWSOur AWS experts take a look back at the major new features announced by the hyperscaler and what they will mean for our customers.

These new features focus on three key aspects of the work of IT teams specialising in the cloud: migration, management and deployment of new solutions.


Among the announcements, our team's first choice was the possibility of processing applications in waves. Why is this interesting? Most migration projects involve grouping applications together in batches. So being able to trigger migration scripts for groups of applications will save IT teams a lot of time.

Another important announcement is the availability of a fully managed database schema conversion service, DMS Schema Conversion. It will be very useful for the always complex migration of databases. This service, which is directly integrated into the AWS console, will no longer require the execution of tools such as AWS SCT. This should simplify conversion when migrating via DMS (Data Migration Services). This new solution automatically converts the source to the target format and remaps any objects that cannot be converted in the process.


On the management side, the safety aspect has not been overlooked, with the announcement ofElastic Disaster Recoverya managed service that will automate Disaster Recovery Plans. Our experts believe that this service will offer real security in the event of a disaster, and is likely to save a great deal of time in post-disaster recovery.

Still on the subject of safety, Amazon Inspector will now scan the functions Lambda (a service widely used for Serverless applications). When the function is triggered, Inspector will launch and publish its report at the same time. This should be a real time-saver for all users of Lambda.

Another long-awaited announcement by Cloud Temple and many of its partners: multi-account management for CloudWatch. Until now, the AWS monitoring service was restricted to a single account and it was therefore necessary to agglomerate the metrics in a third-party tool. Now, metrics from several accounts can be traced back to a single location.


Finally, on the solutions front, our team picked out the announcement of Amazon's new ECS service, Service Connectwhich will facilitate communication between microservices. This new feature simplifies the creation and operation of resilient distributed applications. From now on, it will be possible to add a layer of resilience to your service communication DHW (Elastic Container Services) and obtain traffic information without having to modify the code of your application.
