AWS 推出了與 5G 結合的 AWS Wavelength

看到「Announcing AWS Wavelength for delivering ultra-low latency applications for 5G」這篇,裡面提到了與 5G 結合的 AWS Wavelength

裡面提到的東西包括了把 AWS 的架構延伸到各家電信的架構裡面,看起來跟剛推出的 AWS Outposts 有關 (參考「AWS Outposts 總算要開始出貨了」這邊的介紹):

AWS Wavelength brings AWS services to the edge of the 5G network, minimizing the network hops and latency to connect to an application from a 5G device.


AWS is partnering with leading telecommunications companies around the world, including Verizon, Vodafone, SK Telecom, and KDDI, to launch Wavelength across North America, Europe, Japan, and South Korea in 2020.


AWS Outposts 總算要開始出貨了

去年 AWSre:Invent 喊的 AWS Outposts 總算是有東西要出貨了:「AWS Outposts Now Available – Order Yours Today!」。

放在自家實體的機櫃,然後掛到 AWS 上變成一個特殊的 region。目前一個特殊的 region 只能放 16 個機櫃,但預期之後可以更多:

Capacity Expansion – Today, you can group up to 16 racks into a single capacity pool. Over time we expect to allow you to group thousands of racks together in this manner.

不過要注意的是,需要有 AWS Enterprise Support 才能下單,而且看起來硬體的維修也包在內了:

Support – You must subscribe to AWS Enterprise Support in order to purchase an Outpost. We will remotely monitor your Outpost, and keep it happy & healthy over time. We’ll look for failing components and arrange to replace them without disturbing your operations.

看了一下價錢的頁面,如果以北美的 upfront 來算,最便宜的是 OR-L8IF4WFOR-I0OGL02 的 USD$225,504.81,最貴的是 OR-HSZHMMF 的 USD$898,129.52,暫時應該用不到 XDDD
