Amazon launches VR and AR app platform

29 November 2017

The company made an announcement at midnight during its AWS re:Invent Midnight Madness kick-off event.

Applications that rely on technology like VMware's vSphere software will be able to get access to those same tools in the cloud, while also providing easier access to AWS' suite of first-party services that run in its public cloud datacenters. The platform provides a consistent set of services - elastic load balancing (L4-L7), global server load balancing, DNS services, traffic encryption and security, and real-time application performance analytics - across both on-premises data centers and cloud.

Today, AWS introduced the AWS Solution Provider Program for APN Consulting Partners and new programmes for Technology Partners to build and grow their AWS-based SaaS offerings.

As part of the Fabric-Ready Partner Program, AWS and Fortinet will integrate their security services within the Fortinet Security Fabric.

The AWS Marketplace is armed with software offerings for each step of the migration and post-migration process, he said. "The cloud consultant partner [offering migration] now, all of a sudden, becomes this partner who can actually do a full end-to-end solution for customers", he said.

Note that disabling the root user does not fix this, as you'll still be able to bypass it. We've reached out to Apple for comment and will update it we hear back.

The AWS Competency Program includes 17 categories in solution areas such as IoT, DevOps, Big Data, as well as industry verticals such as Education, Financial Services, Government, and Healthcare/Life Sciences.

The AWS Premier Consulting Partner tier highlights the top APN Consulting Partners globally that have significant AWS investments. Avi Vantage delivers one-click load balancer provisioning, simplified troubleshooting, consistent multi-cloud architecture, and cost savings of more than 50 percent to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS. That's where the AWS Marketplace came in. "The solution is helping enterprises accelerate cloud adoption and become more agile".

Intuit, which has 40 AI and ML features within its products, says that with the use of AWS it will further the development and deployment of its AI and ML capabilities at scale for its customers. Amazon Sumerian also includes templates with pre-populated scenes.

The best thing is that it doesn't require you to be a VR or AR expert. This is now available in preview mode.
