120: The Cloud Pod crosses the data streams
71 / 100

This week on The Cloud Pod, apparently there was a machine learning conference because there is A LOT of machine learning news. For the listeners (and hosts of The Cloud Pod) who don’t understand machine learning, buckle up because this will be a long episode for you.    

A big thanks to this week’s sponsors:

  • Foghorn Consulting, which provides full-stack cloud solutions with a focus on strategy, planning, and execution for enterprises seeking to take advantage of the transformative capabilities of AWS, Google Cloud and Azure.

This week’s highlights

General News: Fake It Until You Make It

Amazon Web Services: Busy As Usual

  • 🤗 Amazon Redshift Machine Learning is now generally available. There’s a helpful table to explain the different machine learning products. 
  • 😞 Amazon ECS Anywhere is now generally available. A bit disappointed that they haven’t addressed the networking issue more.
  • 🎥 Introducing Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics Studio for analyzing streaming data. They’re really into studios at the moment.
  • 👍 Amazon SQS now supports a high throughput mode for FIFO Queues. This is nice. 
  • 🚚 Amazon Location Service is now generally available with new routing and satellite imagery capabilities. Just so you don’t run your truck under a bridge that’s too low.      

Google Cloud Platform: Not A Robot In Disguise

Azure: Crazy Naming Bot

TCP Lightning Round

⚡ Ryan wants to fight to the death but the others don’t want to get blood on the carpet so he takes this week’s point, leaving scores at Justin (9), Ryan (5), Jonathan (7).
