The Cloud Pod returns this week with more updates from the big three in cloud computing Azure, GCP, and AWS! The highlights of this week include: Amazon rolling out new policies that allow cross-account and cross-region patching; the general availability of Azure’s advanced OpenAI service; and an examination of the Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE).
While the Cloud Pod has you covered for all the latest news and insights, we at Foghorn Consulting provide the go-to expertise needed to compete in today’s crowded markets. We are proud sponsors of this podcast, providing consumers will full-stack dependability on all cloud-related fronts.
By introducing new patch policies for AWS Systems Manager, Amazon has finally given users the ability to patch across different accounts and regions. This means users can control patches using centrally-defined patch rules and enforce consistent patch compliance, saving loads of time in the process. AWS was mentioned in at least a baker’s dozen of other headlines in this episode, covering everything from new local zones in Perth and Santiago to IPv6 support for AWS Network Firewall.
Microsoft’s big news this week is the general availability for their OpenAI service. As pioneers in the field of artificial intelligence, particularly in cloud computing, Azure has been working with OpenAI since 2019. Today, their investments have culminated in more in-depth ways to handle very large data sets, which should appeal to countless operations that want to shave time with automation and intelligent analysis.
In what was a quiet outing for GCP, The Cloud Pod turned its attention to the Cloud Center of Excellence instead. While it sounds like it could be an institution, the CCoE is actually an enterprise architecture function that increases the agility of IT teams by providing a structured approach to all cloud-based actions. The guys discussed how IM or Access management should be the first area of focus, as it is key in defining data protection boundaries. Follow along as they continue the Cloud Journey Series to find out more.
