- Amazon Web Services’ CTO said the company is dedicated to making continuous improvements to increase the value of its cloud to the enterprise, and made a number of announcements last week to back that up.
- CTO Werner Vogels, speaking at AWS’ New York Summit, said the company plans to focus on initiatives that will help enterprises prepare for micro services running in a "serverless" cloud environment, according to eWeek.
- For starters, AWS is adding an option to its API Gateway service that will give developers more control over APIs and help them develop serverless apps.
From the beginning, AWS’ strategy has included keeping ahead of competitors by consistently offering new services. And although few enterprises are close to the point where they are ready to employ microservices or serverless code, AWS is determined to be ready for them.
Vogels updated the audience on microservices initiatives and the Lambda serverless computing architecture -- two technologies he believe will be the future of application development on AWS.
"We will never stop" building up the AWS cloud, Vogels told the audience.
The company also doesn’t want to lose site of the present, so it is also pushing services that help enterprises that have not yet taken the plunge to move applications to the cloud, including a new data migration appliance AWS has dubbed “Snowball.”
