This week’s AI-powered episode of Cloud Pod discusses the varied and exciting machinations of GCP, Amazon, and Azure, as well as continued coverage of Oracle’s forays into the arena. Azure AI gets some billing, as well as an examination of Google AI’s plight to climb up from the third spot in the race.

The big news for AWS users was about Lamda, their event-driven, serverless computing platform, which now allows response payload streaming. The guys discussed how this feature can improve performance on the front and back ends of applications. Also discussed was AWS Proton’s new Git integrations and improvements to Elasticache’s compatibility with Amazon RDS.
Microsoft’s investments into Artificial Intelligence continued with Azure AI’s connected learning experience, or CLX, which will expand their user base even more going forward. Further, the team discussed Azure in Space and its initiatives across several government agencies, including the U.S Air Force Research Lab, Ball Aerospace, the Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC), and more. Finally, news has arrived of their new Azure App Service Plans, which should save money for developers who qualify for the Premium v3 and isolated v2 plans.
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) announced the general availability of internal and external HTTPS load balancers, for custom domains, identity-aware proxy tools, and better migration from legacy servers. And there’s also a new ‘observability tab’ in the Compute Engine, so users can see vital metrics in the form of visual graphs. GCP is expected to have more news in the coming weeks.
Don’t forget to check out the hosts’ discussion on Oracle as well. While they have a large gap to cover to reach the top provider class, their Sovereign Cloud Solutions should be of interest to admins.
