Last Friday, Amazon held an online conference called AWS Re:Cap to summarise all the new Amazon Web Services features presented at the end of 2020. Let’s take a look at the exciting new features!
Amazon started with announcing the new EC2 P4d instances, which can support up to 400Gbps networking speed on the cloud. These are the first instances with such a blazing fast networking speed!
But that’s not all, Amazon also announced the new P4d instances to have up to 2.5x better deep learning performance, which could mean up to 60% cost savings in using these fast and powerful instances.
For SAP use cases, Amazon now has a newer largest high memory of 24 TB.
Further on, new EC2 M5zn instances were discussed, which provide higher processing capabilities. This is especially interesting in the case of software licensing. If you are only allowed to run the software on a specific amount of servers, this could help you save money, as you get more processing power on each M5zn service. These instances offer up to 45% better price-performance compared to the previous EC2 M5 instances.
Companies need to be thinking long-term before even starting a software development project. These needs are solved at the level of architecture: business owners want to assure agility, scalability, and performance.

A while ago, we covered the invocation (trigger) methods supported by Lambda and the integrations available with the AWS catalog. Now we’re launching a series of articles to correlate these integration possibilities with common serverless architectural patterns (covered by this literature review). In Part I, we will cover the Orchestration & Aggregation category. Subscribe to our newsletter and stay tuned for the next parts of the series.
This article aims to explain how organizations and individuals can benefit from the efficiency that serverless architectures offer. This article shares the top 4 cost centers that serverless-based systems help in optimizing. AWS handles the server management activities on our behalf so that we can focus on writing our application’s features and capabilities.
