Level 200 | What's New / Cloud Innovation

Cloud storage is a critical component of cloud computing, holding the information used by applications. Big data analytics, data lakes, Internet of Things, databases, backup and restore, and archive applications all rely on some form of data storage architecture. AWS offers a complete range of cloud storage services that are typically more reliable, scalable, and secure than traditional on-premises storage systems. In this tech talk, learn about the key AWS storage announcements that occurred just prior to and at re:Invent 2018. Object Storage had the most announcements with 8 new Amazon S3 features, including additional storage classes (S3 Intelligent-Tiering and S3 Glacier Deep Archive is Pre-announced), security and compliance (S3 Block Public Access and S3 Object Lock), storage management (S3 Batch Operations in Preview), and new S3 features that make it even easier to use Amazon S3 Glacier (S3 PUT to Glacier, S3 Cross-Region Replication to Glacier, S3 Restore Notifications, and S3 Restore Speed Upgrade). With new Amazon S3 storage classes, security and compliance, storage management and automation, and S3 API unification for the S3 Glacier storage class, you will be able to start designing the foundation of your cloud IT environment for any application and easily migrate data to AWS.

Learning Objectives

  • Reduce storage costs and easily transition objects between storage classes, especially S3 Glacier
  • Enforce a "no public access" security policy and set retention dates for compliance or as an added layer of protection
  • Perform batch operations on billions of S3 objects easily

Who Should Attend?

IT Leaders and Professionals, IT Managers of Infrastructure, Cloud Architects, Application Owners, Software Developers, Security Operations Administrators, and Storage Administrators and Architects
