AWS introduces API tracking, Desktop-as-a-Service and app streaming

Cloud provider announces new tools to better support online developers

Amazon Web Services (AWS) kicked off its Re:Invent 2013 event in Las Vegas with a host of new announcements.

Developers can now keep track of AWS APIs with CloudTrail, which records usage of the APIs and creates log files in the vendor's S3 Cloud storage product.

With CloudTrail, users can see what actions have been carried out at what time, as well as which users have carried out what activity from which IP address.

AWA is throwing its hat into the virtual desktop space with Amazon WorkSpaces, which will enable Microsoft Windows and WorkSpaces compatible software to be usable on desktop and mobile devices via the Cloud.

Since WorkSpaces sessions run in the Cloud, users will have the ability to carry over their user experience from one device to the other.

The other major announcement was Amazon AppStream, which allows developers to stream application content to mobile devices with the help of the Cloud.

This product is targeted at developers that want to deliver HD video or 3D game content to Internet enabled devices, with the computational aspect carried out in the Cloud.

Pricing and availability in A/NZ for the three new products is yet to be announced.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
