AWS Strengthens its AI and Machine Learning Offerings

In addition to Amazon’s announcements, Sumo Logic announced four new Sumo Logic AWS Quick Start integrations and expanded tracing visibility into AWS Lambda functions.

At its annual AWS re:Invent held this week, Amazon Web Services made several announcements relevant to the real-time community. For example, it announced six new capabilities for its machine learning service, Amazon SageMaker, that make machine learning more accessible and cost effective. The announcements bring together new capabilities, including a no-code environment for creating accurate machine learning predictions, more accurate data labeling using highly skilled annotators, a universal Amazon SageMaker Studio notebook experience for greater collaboration across domains, a compiler for machine learning training that makes code more efficient, automatic compute instance selection machine learning inference, and serverless compute for machine learning inference.

AWS also announced three new database capabilities that make it easier and more cost efficient for customers to scale and run the right databases for their job. The announcements introduce a new managed database service for business applications that allows customers to customize the underlying database and operating system, a new table class for Amazon DynamoDB designed to reduce storage costs for infrequently accessed data, and a service that uses machine learning to better diagnose and remediate database-related performance issues.

Additionally, Amazon announced new Amazon EC2 C7g instances powered by the latest generation custom-designed AWS Graviton3 processors are available in preview. Amazon EC2 C7g instances are designed for compute-intensive workloads such as CPU-based machine learning inference. They also support Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA) for applications that require high levels of inter-node communication.

New call-to-action

Sumo Logic strengthens its AWS offerings

Also at the conference, Sumo Logic announced four new Sumo Logic AWS Quick Start integrations for rapid access to security and compliance insights and support for Amazon Inspector. Aligned with the AWS Security Reference Architecture, the Quick Start integrations automate the collection and analysis of security events. 

Specifically, Sumo Logic offers 12 Quick Start integrations for Amazon Web Services delivering out-of-the-box queries, alerts, and dashboards to detect active threats quickly. This allows security engineers to set a common architecture to tackle critical detection and investigation use cases. This includes the new AWS Inspector as well as integrations for AWS GuardDuty, AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF), and AWS Security Hub.

As an integration partner for Amazon Inspector, Sumo Logic reveals trends and identifies anomalies in Inspector scan results in real-time. This helps customers surface critical security insights by understanding how application and infrastructure changes impact scan results to help provide critical insights customers need to be successful.

Additionally, Sumo Logic announced expanded tracing visibility into AWS Lambda functions is now available. Powered by AWS CloudWatch, AWS CloudTrail, and OpenTelemetry, Sumo Logic now leverages AWS Lambda telemetry: logs, metrics, and traces required to provide full end-to-end application visibility.

This allows Sumo Logic to deliver unified observability to customers building and operating Lambda functions, providing unique views into resource utilization and application stack performance for the best possible end-user experience. In addition to telemetry, Sumo Logic analyzes how functions perform during transactions and correlates that performance to the wide range of Amazon services in a customer application.
