Week 48 - Issue #55
AWS Outposts servers are on-premises compute and storage that is monitored and managed by AWS, and controlled by the same, familiar AWS APIs. The c6gd.16xlarge model supports six instance sizes, as follows: 2x 1.9 TB, 4x 4x 237 GB, 8 16 GiB 474 GB, 16 32 GiB 950 GB, 32 64 GiB 1.8 TB c6id.8xlarge supports all but the largest of the following instance sizes. Each Outposts server connects to the cloud via the public Internet or across a private AWS Direct Connect line.
Amazon Redshift Serverless is a new capability that makes it super easy to run analytics in the cloud with high performance at any scale. There is no need to set up and manage clusters, and you pay for the duration in seconds when your data warehouse is in use, for example, while you are querying or loading data. With the new serverless option, you can continue to query data in other AWS data stores, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) data lakes and Amazon Aurora and Amazon Relational Database Service.
A reproducible environment is one that can be recreated from scratch in an identical way (ideally bit-for-bit) Practically, this means having the same tools, versions, and configuration between the environments. Nix provides a whole build system that allows for building packages in an isolated way. Docker doesn't have any guarantees that creating images is reproducible -- If you run docker build twice with the same Dockerfile you might get 2 images that behave in different ways. Nix takes a first-priniciples approach to reproducible builds and package management.
