In this episode of AWS TechChat, TechChat turns 50 and Shane and Pete come at you with a raft of short sharp and important updates that occurred in June, in the year 2019. They started the show, introducing you to a new service that has gone GA - AWS IoT Events. AWS IoT Events is a new, fully managed IoT service that makes it easy to detect and respond to events from IoT sensors and applications without the traditional heavy lifting of building traditional IoT applications and brings a managed complex event detection service to our already buff IoT suit. Sticking with IoT theme, we quickly announced BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) support has landed in Amazon FreeRTOS, and a new MQTT library is now generally available in Amazon FreeRTOS 201906.00. With this update, you can now securely connect Amazon FreeRTOS devices using BLE to AWS IoT via Android and iOS devices, and use the new MQTT library to create applications that are independent of the connectivity protocol. We then spoke about two new features for Microsoft SQL. Always On Availability Groups have made their way to SQL Server 2017 Enterprise Edition and we let you know you can now restore a multi-file native SQL Server backup from Amazon S3 to an Amazon RDS SQL Server database instance. Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) for Windows containers has gone GA so prepare your BSODs, only kidding. We now support Amazon ECS clusters running Windows Server 2019 containers, so if Windows containers are your thing, take a look at Amazon ECS. Lastly, with Amazon API Gateway custom domains, you can now enforce a minimum Transport Layer Security (TLS) version and cipher suites through a security policy allowing you to further improve security for your customers.
