2019. AWS Outposts brings Amazon cloud to data center

Amazon announced general availability of Outposts - a private cloud hardware stack they install in your data center. There are certain workloads like running a factory that need compute resources to be close because of low-latency requirements. That’s where Outposts could play well, and where similar existing solutions in his opinion fell short because there wasn’t a smooth connection between the on-prem hardware and the cloud. The hardware is equipped with a slew of services, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, Amazon ECS, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service and Amazon EMR. Amazon is following Microsoft and Google's footsteps that already have their own hybrid cloud offerings for customers: Azure Arc and Google Anthos.
