Join our ACG hosts as they recap the most important developments in the AWS world from the past week. Keeping up with ever-changing world of cloud can be difficult, so let us do the hard work sifting through announcements to bring you the best of what's new with AWS This Week.

Hello, Cloud Gurus and welcome  to AWS This Week. And there are   some very cool announcements  to tell you about this week,   including the new VPC Resource Map that enables  you to visualize the architecture of your VPC.   ElastiCache for Redis 7 now supports enhanced  I/O multiplexing, and the first new Graviton3   based instance types have been released. You're  watching AWS This Week with me, Faye Ellis. This week saw the launch of the new VPC Resource  Map, which is a great new feature that enables   you to visualize the architecture of your VPC.  With Resource Map, you can quickly understand   the architectural layout of your VPC, including  the number of subnets, all their connections,   which subnets are associated with your public  route table, and which route tables have roots   to an Internet Gateway all in one single  diagram. Resource Map makes it really easy  

to identify any undesirable configurations,  and you can even select components within the   diagram to navigate directly to a particular  resource in order to update the configuration. ElastiCache for Redis 7 now includes  enhanced I/O multiplexing. And if you   haven't used ElastiCache before, it's  an in-memory, key-value data store,   which is used to accelerate application and  database performance by caching frequently   accessed data in memory, and with  sub-millisecond response times. And with this new announcement, ElastiCache for  Redis 7 now includes enhanced I/O multiplexing,   which is a great new feature that delivers up  to a 72% increase in read and write operations   per second, and up to a 71% decrease in  latency compared with the previous version.   And the really great thing about this announcement  is that it's enabled automatically when using   ElastiCache for Redis 7 and at no additional  cost. And finally, AWS have released the very  

first Graviton3 based instance types. And of  course, Graviton3 processors are the latest in   the AWS graviton processor family, and they're  designed to deliver the best price performance   for EC2 workloads. And Graviton3 gives you up  to a 25% better compute performance and up to   three times faster CPU-based machine learning  performance than the previous generation. And   it's particularly suitable for high  performance computing in the cloud. So first of all, they've announced the C7g  metal instances, which are designed for   applications that cannot run in a virtualized  environment and require direct access to bare   metal infrastructure. There's also the new M7g  instances, which are suitable for general purpose  

workloads like application servers, microservices,  gaming servers, and databases. And then finally,   there's the new R7g instances, which are  designed for memory-intensive workloads,   like in-memory caches, and real-time big data  analytics. Well, that's all for this week. Keep   being awesome Cloud Gurus. Take care of yourselves  and I'll look forward to seeing you soon.
