Amazon Web Services chief Andy Jassy kicked off the AWS re:Invent developers conference today. Jassy unveiled a new data-warehouse-as-a-service offering, [[artnid:443177|dubbed Redshift]], and also announced a [[artnid:443222|price cut for the cloud giant's S3 service]].
Some 6000 people are attending the two-day conference.
AWS unveiled a Sydney Region [[artnid:441818|earlier this month]]. The Sydney Region launched with two Availability Zones. However Jassy has said that he expects that demand will likely lead to the cloud wing of Amazon [[artnid:441855|launching further Availability Zones in Australia the future]].
