AWS Weekly Roundup: Amazon Bedrock, AWS CodeBuild, Amazon CodeCatalyst, and extra (April 29, 2024)

Voiced by Polly

This was a busy week for Amazon Bedrock with many new features! Utilizing GitHub Actions with AWS CodeBuild is far simpler. Additionally, Amazon Q in Amazon CodeCatalyst can now handle extra advanced points.

I used to be amazed to fulfill so many new and previous buddies on the AWS Summit London. To present you a fast glimpse, right here’s AWS Hero Yan Cui starting his presentation at the AWS Community stage.

Final week’s launches
With so many attention-grabbing new options, I begin with generative synthetic intelligence (generative AI) after which transfer to the opposite matters. Right here’s what received my consideration:

Amazon Bedrock – For supported architectures akin to Llama, Mistral, or Flan T5, now you can import custom models and entry them on demand. Model evaluation is now generally available that can assist you consider, evaluate, and choose one of the best basis fashions (FMs) on your particular use case. Now you can access Meta’s Llama 3 models.

Agents for Amazon Bedrock – A simplified agent creation and return of control, with the intention to outline an motion schema and get the management again to carry out these motion with no need to create a selected AWS Lambda perform. Brokers additionally added support for Anthropic Claude 3 Haiku and Sonnet to assist construct quicker and extra clever brokers.

Knowledge Bases for Amazon Bedrock – Now you can ingest data from up to five data sources and supply extra full solutions. Within the console, now you can chat with one of your documents with no need to arrange a vector database (learn extra in this Machine Learning blog post).

Guardrails for Amazon Bedrock – The potential to implement safeguards primarily based in your use instances and accountable AI insurance policies is now available with new safety filters and privacy controls.

Amazon Titan – The brand new watermark detection feature is now generally available in Amazon Bedrock. On this approach, you’ll be able to establish photos generated by Amazon Titan Picture Generator utilizing an invisible watermark current in all photos generated by Amazon Titan.

Amazon CodeCatalyst – Amazon Q can now split complex issues into separate, simpler tasks that may then be assigned to a consumer or again to Amazon Q. CodeCatalyst now additionally supports approval gates within a workflow. Approval gates pause a workflow that’s constructing, testing, and deploying code so {that a} consumer can validate whether or not it ought to be allowed to proceed.

Amazon EC2 – Now you can remove an automatically assigned public IPv4 address from an EC2 instance. Should you now not want the robotically assigned public IPv4 (for instance, since you are migrating to utilizing a personal IPv4 deal with for SSH with EC2 instance connect), you need to use this feature to shortly take away the robotically assigned public IPv4 deal with and cut back your public IPv4 prices.

Community Load Balancer – Now supports Resource Map in AWS Management Console, a instrument that shows all of your NLB assets and their relationships in a visible format on a single web page. Word that Application Load Balancer already supports Resource Map in the console.

AWS CodeBuild – Now helps managed GitHub Action self-hosted runners. You’ll be able to configure CodeBuild tasks to obtain GitHub Actions workflow job occasions and run them on CodeBuild ephemeral hosts.

Amazon Route 53 – Now you can define a standard DNS configuration in the form of a Profile, apply this configuration to a number of VPCs, and share it throughout AWS accounts.

AWS Direct Connect – Hosted connections now support capacities up to 25 Gbps. Earlier than, the utmost was 10 Gbps. Increased bandwidths simplify deployments of functions akin to superior driver help programs (ADAS), media and leisure (M&E), synthetic intelligence (AI), and machine studying (ML).

NoSQL Workbench for Amazon DynamoDB – A revamped operation builder user interface that can assist you higher navigate, run operations, and browse your DynamoDB tables.

Amazon GameLift – Now supports in preview end-to-end development of containerized workloads, together with deployment and scaling on premises, within the cloud, or for hybrid configurations. You should utilize containers for constructing, deploying, and operating sport server packages.

For a full list of AWS announcements, be sure to keep an eye on the What’s New at AWS page.
