Amazon Web Services database (AWS) is extraordinarily popular, with 80% of enterprises considering AWS as their favorite cloud-based service. Such popularity results in neverending growth for AWS. In fact, it can be pretty hard to keep up with all of the changes.

If you’re struggling to keep up with Amazon’s “AWS: What’s New” page, you’re not alone. We’ve compiled a list of the most important updates just for you.

AWS Backup

At the beginning of 2019, AWS created a brand new backup service: AWS Backup. It comes with a variety of advanced AWS features that make it stand out among competitors. One of the most notable features of the update is its ability to work with third-party products.

In other words, AWS Backup is completely centralized and simplified. Users can now run backups throughout all of AWS including Amazon RDS, Amazon EBS, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon EFS, as well as AWS Storage Gateway.

On-Demand DynamoDB

Introduced at last year’s AWS re:Invent conference, the On-Demand DynamoDB functions as a billing system that requires no capacity planning. It’s able to fulfill thousands of requests in just one second. Plus, the pay-per-request pricing makes it simple to weigh expenses and performance.

Amazon Timestream

Amazon Timestream comes in handy for DevOps looking for real-time performance data for their application. Timestream is capable of processing trillions of events in one day for at an affordable price. This makes it ideal for DevOps and other companies to use it to monitor their product or even a user’s experience with an app.

Amazon Textract

Amazon Textract was another groundbreaking announcement during 2018’s re:Invent AWS. The time-consuming process of manual data entry might not exist in the future–Amazon Textract is bound to eliminate it eventually.

Not only does Amazon Textract have the ability to read all kinds of documents, but it can accurately record any text in forms or tables. This makes a developer’s life a lot easier, as it can comb through millions of pages in mere hours.

AWS RoboMaker

Have you ever wanted to build your very own robot? Well, now you can.

Corporations are taking advantage of one of the most the shocking AWS announcements: AWS RoboMaker. This program gives businesses all the tools they need in order to plan, test, and set up robotic applications. AWS RoboMaker makes it easier for growing businesses to save time and money on IT costs.

Before AWS RoboMaker, there was no efficient way to develop robots for a company’s needs. The process was just too costly for many businesses, but AWS RoboMaker makes it much more cost-effective.
