Amazon Launches Quantum Ledger Database and Managed Blockchain

Amazon Web Services announced 13 new machine learning services and capabilities to add to its growing machine learning portfolio

Amazon Unveils 'Immutable' Quantum Ledger Database Product

"When users search for products in Private Marketplace, they can see which products are labelled as "Approved for Procurement" and quickly filter between their company's catalogue and the full catalogue of software products in AWS Marketplace", Ray says.

The company was reported saying that the Managed Blockchain services will have the ability to replicate an immutable copy of the user's blockchain network activity into Amazon Quantum Ledger Database, which is a completely managed ledger database. AWS Security Hub provides a comprehensive view to manage security alerts and automate compliance checks for AWS customers.

"VMware's vision is to provide customers with consistency of infrastructure, operations and developer experience, enabling them to build and run any application wherever the business requires".

For those unfamiliar with reinforcement learning, it's a subset of machine learning, which is a field that AWS has been investing in heavily over the past year, along with announcing several new services aimed specifically at this segment of the industry.

SageMaker "Ground Truth" capability produces high-quality labelled training data; SageMaker RL delivers Cloud's first managed service for reinforcement learning algorithms and simulators; and a new ML Marketplace offers more than 150 new models and algorithms to developers via SageMaker.

DeepRacer, which is about the size of a shoebox and designed by Amazon's cloud computing division, Amazon Web Services (AWS), can be preordered for US$249 and will sell for $399.

For customers who want to use the same VMware control plane and APIs they've been using to run their infrastructure, they will be able to run VMware Cloud on AWS locally on AWS Outposts.

Outposts can be upgraded with the latest hardware and next-generation instances to run all native AWS and VMware applications, AWS stated. AWS on its website commented on its managed blockchain service informing on how it will operate.

AWS had already announced some new updates to its cloud machine learning (ML) services, Amazon Polly, Amazon Translate and Amazon Transcribe. "So we started with what our customers were asking for and worked backwards".

"There just isn't a lot of value in that type of on-premises offering and that's why these solutions aren't getting much traction", he added.

It supports two popular open source blockchain frameworks - Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric.

Missing the mark with a forecast can have a significant impact, such as being unable to meet customer demand or significantly over-spending.

AWS's provisioning and management services give customers granular control over their environments, but many organisations also want prescriptive guidance and help setting up a secure, multi-account environment.

AWS also unveiled a breakthrough in building its own computer chip to handle certain AI processing jobs, which marks an attempt from Amazon to rely less on chip giant Intel.
