The PostgreSQL-compatible edition of Amazon Aurora is now available in 12 regions. With the addition of the Asia Pacific (Singapore) AWS Region & EU London Region, you have a new option for database placement, availability, and scalability.

Amazon Aurora combines the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. It provides up to three times better performance than the typical PostgreSQL database, together with increased scalability, durability, and security. For more information, please visit the Amazon Aurora product page, and see the AWS Region Table for complete regional availability.

Amazon Route 53 Auto Naming Releases API for Managing Health Status of Service Instances

Now, you can use a new Amazon Route 53 Auto Naming API to update the health status of service instances manually. After you register a service instance with a new custom health check configuration, you can call the new API to mark the service instance healthy and start routing traffic to it. Alternatively, you can set the health status to “unhealthy,” and Route 53 will stop routing traffic to this service instance.

Now you can integrate third-party health checking systems with Route 53 Auto Naming. Additionally, you have more control over traffic routing decisions to help manage new deployments.

Elasticsearch 6.2 is now available on Amazon Elasticsearch Service

Amazon Elasticsearch Service supports Elasticsearch 6.2 and Kibana 6.2. Elasticsearch 6.2 offers several enhancements over the Elasticsearch 6.0 stack, including a new ranking evaluation API, index splitting API, Vega interactive visualizations, and composite aggregations with paging.

Amazon Elasticsearch Service delivers Elasticsearch’s easy-to-use APIs and real-time capabilities along with the availability, scalability, and security required by production workloads. When creating an Amazon Elasticsearch Service domain, you can now select Elasticsearch version 6.2. All Amazon Elasticsearch Service domains using Elasticsearch 6.2 are bundled with Kibana 6.2, the corresponding version of the open-source visualization tool.

Elasticsearch 6.2 on Amazon Elasticsearch Service is available in all AWS Regions where Amazon Elasticsearch Service is offered. To learn more about today’s announcement, check out our documentation.

AWS Serverless Application Model (AWS SAM) Supports Additional Amazon API Gateway Features

You now have more options to configure and deploy REST APIs using the AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM). You can now configure logging, metrics, CORS, and regional endpoints for Amazon API Gateway resources in your AWS SAM template. You can also configure APIs that support binary data and you can define method settings like throttling limits and CacheTTL. Visit the release notesfor more details on these new features.

Manage your Amazon RDS, Redshift, and ElastiCache Reservations via the Reserved Instance (RI) Coverage Report in AWS Cost Explorer

You can use the Reserved Instance (RI) Coverage report in AWS Cost Explorer to better understand and manage your Amazon RDS, Amazon Redshift, and Amazon ElastiCache reservations, in addition to your Amazon EC2 RIs. The RI Coverage report allows you to visualize the percentage of running instance hours that are covered by RIs against a user-defined coverage threshold and over a timeline that you define. You can view RI coverage at a high level (e.g., across all running hours) or dive into a detailed view by filtering on account, instance type, region, tags, and more. You can also access additional coverage-related information such as the number of On-Demand hours used, the node type, and the region in which it was used. From there, you can use this information to optimize your RI purchasing strategy (e.g., by identifying instance hours that are consistently running at on-demand rates and purchase matching RIs).

Amazon Inspector Now Supports Amazon Linux 2

Amazon Inspector now supports security assessments on Amazon Linux 2 for Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures (CVE), Security Best Practices, and Runtime Behavior Analysis. To run security assessments, simply install the Amazon Inspector Agent on the desired Amazon EC2 instance, configure your assessment in the Inspector console, and run your assessment.

Amazon Inspector is an on-demand security assessment service that helps AWS customers validate the security configurations of the applications and operating systems deployed in their Amazon EC2 environments. Inspector gives customers the flexibility to check EC2 instances for vulnerabilities and evaluate their instance configurations against security benchmarks any time they need.
