The Canadian PressEvent organizer drops BookExpo, annual publishing conventionNEW YORK — The annual publishing convention and trade show known as BookExpo, a decades-old tradition where guest speakers have ranged from Bill Clinton to Margaret Atwood, may be coming to an end.
ReedPop, which has managed BookExpo for a quarter century, announced Tuesday that effectively immediately it was “retiring” the event, along with the fan-based BookCon and merchandise-based UnBound. Any future for the convention depends on the wishes of the book community. As in other industries, publishers have debated the necessity of holding BookExpo when much of the business once conducted there has moved online.
BookExpo used to be rotated around the country, from Los Angeles to Chicago to Washington, D.C., but it was held almost exclusively in recent years in Manhattan’s Jacob Javits Center. New York publishers looked to reduce costs, including cutting back sharply on how much space they purchased on the convention floor.
Earlier this year, BookExpo and BookCon were held virtually because of the coronavirus. The status for next year’s show was already in doubt.
“The pandemic arrived at a time in the life cycle of BookExpo and BookCon where we were already examining the restructure …

AWS: Containers, serverless, and cloud-native computing oh my!

aws: containers, serverless, and cloud-native computing oh my!

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Amazon Web Services (AWS) CEO Andy Jassy is famous for his hours-long keynotes, but his 2020 AWS re: Invent took the cake. While numerous AWS hardware upgrades and the eye-popping announcement that AWS and Apple are now offering macOS as a desktop-as-a-service got most of the headlines, what I see as the most significant updates is how AWS is improving its Lambda serverless function service.

AWS re:Invent

Of course, we still have to be on servers. Serverless services like Lambda must run on something after all. But serverless computing functions don’t require management. You simply call these functions as needed; they’re executed, scaled, and billed in response to the exact demand needed at the moment.And, when AWS says “the moment,” it means a millisecond of moment. Starting now, AWS announced, “We are rounding up the duration to the nearest millisecond with no minimum execution time.” This is going to save many AWS customers some serious coin.Making it even more useful, you can now allocate up to 10GB of memory to a Lambda function. That’s three-times bigger than before. To put all that RAM to good use, Lambda also allocates CPUs and other resources linearly in proportion to the …

AWS Unveils Batch of Analytics, Database Tools

aws unveils batch of analytics, database tools

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

(Michael-Vi/Shutterstock)

A trio of analytics tools announced by Amazon Web Services are aimed at improving the performance of the cloud vendor’s Redshift data warehouse by easing data movement across different storage platforms.
The analytics tools along with a serverless configuration tool for its Aurora database were among the first wave of AWS product announcements during this week’s virtual re:Invent gathering.
The analytics package unveiled Tuesday (Dec. 1) includes and “advanced query accelerator” dubbed AQUA designed to speed Redshift queries via “hardware-accelerated cache.” Another tool branded as Glue Elastic View allows developers to draw on scattered data to build applications. The tool provides materialized views used to combine and replicate data across storage, warehouses and databases.
The third piece, called QuickSight Q, is a machine learning-based tool that allows natural language expressions to be used for business queries.
AQUA is aimed at overcoming performance and scaling bottlenecks as data movement increases between computing nodes and shared data stored in Amazon Redshift cloud instances. Data movement hogs available networking bandwidth, thereby eroding performance.
Hence, AQUA is positioned as a distributed and hardware-accelerated cache for boosting analytics performance on Redshift. The query accelerator “brings compute to the storage layer, so …

AWS introduces Proton container management service

aws introduces proton container management service

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Amazon Web Services made several announcements related to its container offerings during its annual re:Invent developer conference, including the public preview of AWS Proton and the official launch of the Amazon Elastic Container Registry Public (ECR Public).

AWS has three core container offerings: Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), and AWS Fargate. With the addition of Proton, AWS is aiming to provide a fully managed application deployment service for container and serverless applications.Proton allows platform teams to create a “stack” that defines everything needed to provision, deploy, and monitor a service, including compute, networking, code pipeline, security, and monitoring. In a nutshell, the service aims to help infrastructure teams manage microservices and update infrastructure without impacting developer productivity, AWS said.During his re:Invent keynote, AWS chief executive Andy Jassy said customers still have containers that need to run on-premises, but also want the same management mechanisms that they have in the cloud. To that end, the company also announced ECS Anywhere and EKS Anywhere, both of which are designed to let customers run container services on-premises as well as in the cloud. AWS also said it was open sourcing EKS, its managed Kubernetes …

AWS announces high resource Lambda functions, container image support & millisecond billing

aws announces high resource lambda functions, container image support & millisecond billing

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

AWS announced some big updates to its Lambda serverless function service today. For starters, starting today it will be able to deliver functions with up to 10MB of memory and 6 vCPUs (virtual CPUs). This will allow developers building more compute-intensive functions to get the resources they need.
“Starting today, you can allocate up to 10 GB of memory to a Lambda function. This is more than a 3x increase compared to previous limits. Lambda allocates CPU and other resources linearly in proportion to the amount of memory configured. That means you can now have access to up to 6 vCPUs in each execution environment,” the company wrote in a blog post announcing the new capabilities.
Serverless computing doesn’t mean there are no servers. It means that developers no longer have to worry about the compute, storage and memory requirements because the cloud provider — in this case, AWS — takes care of it for them, freeing them up to just code the application instead of deploying resources.
Today’s announcement combined with support for support for the AVX2 instruction set, means that developers can use this approach with more sophisticated technologies like machine learning, gaming and even high performance computing.
One of the …
