AWS Showcases Latest Technology to 'Reinvent' the Cloud

Amazon Web Services (AWS) got its start by offering virtual compute instances, but over the years, the volume of connected cloud services has grown significantly to help organizations with all aspects of application delivery in the cloud. At AWS' 2014 re:Invent conference from Nov. 11 to 14, the company showcased new developer, security and deployment services. Among them was the unveiling of three new application lifecycle management (ALM) tools, each providing new ways for developers to optimize their workflow processes. Part of ALM tool rollout was the CodeDeploy service for automated code deployment; the CodeCommit service, which provides private Git code repositories; and the CodePipeline release automation service. Amazon also used re:Invent as the platform to announce three new enterprise security and governance services. The new Key Management Service (KMS) enables users to create and manage encryption keys, the AWS Config service provides change management and configuration information, and the AWS Service catalog provides approved resources that an administrator can control for users. This slide show highlights key announcements from this year's re:Invent conference.
