The Ultimate List Of Announcements Expected From AWS re:Invent 2017 – Part 2

This is the second part of the article on what to expect from AWS re:Invent 2017.

As we gear up to attend yet another re:Invent, here is the master list of announcements that you can expect from AWS. Some of them are obvious, and some are just a part of my wish list. I am curious to see how many of these will make it to the keynotes delivered by Andy Jassy and Werner Vogels.

Compute Services

The writing is on the wall! Amazon is all set to announce managed Kubernetes running on top of EC2. In all possibilities, the new service, which is an extension to its existing EC2 Container Service (ECS), may be branded as EC2 Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS). Going by the branding of Google (which has renamed its service to Google Kubernetes Engine recently) and Microsoft, I expect Amazon to call the new container orchestration service as EKS. With Amazon joining CNCF and hiring container experts, it is clearly evident that the hosted Kubernetes offering is in works.

CloudWatch, the monitoring service may get an extension to track the health of containers and pods running within a Kubernetes cluster. Other services such as EBS and ELB will be integrated to deliver native persistence and ingress capabilities.

Amazon may launch container-optimized spot instances that provide short-lived execution of jobs handled by containers. This will lead to serverless containers where customers can point to a Docker image that will be run each time the spot instance comes up. This service may be modeled around Hyper.sh and Azure Container Instances.
