Bill Vorhies of Data Science Central and Rick Negrin of MemSQL recently delivered a webinar on data lakes and the use of Hadoop in the age of operational machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI). In this blog post, we summarize some of the key points from the webinar, as a preview for the webinar. You can also view the recorded webinar at any point. Businesses need flexible access to their data to make the best decisions. Unfortunately, the systems in use today impose complexity and structural delays. MemSQL, a fast, fully scalable relational database that supports ANSI SQL, can …

Today, I'm happy to announce that the AWS GovCloud (US-East) Region, our 19th global infrastructure Region, is now available for use by customers in the US. With this launch, AWS now provides 57 Availability Zones, with another 12 zones and four Regions in Bahrain, Cape Town, Hong Kong SAR, and Stockholm expected to come online by 2020.

The AWS GovCloud (US-East) Region is our second AWS GovCloud (US) Region, joining AWS GovCloud (US-West) to further help US government agencies, the contractors that serve them, and organizations in highly regulated industries move more of their workloads to the AWS Cloud by implementing a number of US government-specific regulatory requirements.

Similar to the AWS GovCloud (US-West), the AWS GovCloud (US-East) Region provides three Availability Zones and meets the stringent requirements of the public sector and highly regulated industries, including being operated on US…
