Amazon Web Services’ global customer and partner conference AWS re:Invent 2019 has kicked off this week in Las Vegas. The conference will feature sessions, breakout content, bootcamps, certifications, hands-on labs and an expo hall.
In addition to the number of announcements being made by the company, third-party vendors are also announcing new solutions and support.
Here are some highlights:
Matillion Data Loader launched
Matillion announced a free SaaS data integration solution designed to simplify, easily load, and migrate data. The Matillion Data Loader will help teams centralize the management of BI and analytics by allowing them to take data for different sources and load it to their chosen cloud data warehouse.

Instana announces Node.js functions for AWS Lambda
Users can now trace serverless Node.js functions running on AWS Lambda with Instana’s new announcement. The capabilities feature zero code modification, automated native serverless tracing, and performance metrics.
“As companies continue to push the envelope in creating smaller, more dynamic services, developers will use serverless functions more often, and in more critical applications,” said Mirko Novakovic, co-founder and CEO of Instana. “By providing Native Node.js tracing on AWS Lambda, Instana helps application stakeholders like DevOps see how individual functions are performing call by call, but also provides the necessary details developers need to make their code perform as expected.”
Dynatrace supports AWS hybrid clouds
Dynatrace announced it is extending its AI-powered software intelligence platform to support AWS hybrid clouds. According to the company, this will give users complete visibility and actionable insights into the performance of their applications running in AWS hybrid clouds.
“AWS Outposts extends AWS public cloud services to create a seamless hybrid experience in how organizations build, operate and manage their application workloads across cloud and on-premise environments,” said Steve Tack, SVP of products at Dynatrace. “To maximize benefits, organizations need the same consistent experience from their monitoring solutions for AWS hybrid environments. Dynatrace offers the same manageability, control, and functionality across hybrid environments, reducing the complexity and risk associated with alternative approaches that do not support hybrid environments in a single platform.”
PagerDuty for Cloud Operations
The newly announced solution is designed to help IT and DevOps teams transform operation practices as they move to the cloud. Together with AWS solutions, users will be able to automatically detect incidents, respond in real time and automate workflows.
Core components include: PagerDuty’s digital operations management platform, join integrations with PagerDuty and AWS services, DagerDuty’s Digital Operations Maturity Model, and solution architecting.
MongoDB Atlas adds support for AWS services
The cloud database will now support AWS CloudFormation, EventBridge, PrivateLink and more. MongoDB Atlas with AWS PrivateLink will help ensure private connectivity to apps running on AWS. SAML authentication will be added through AWS Single Sign-On and other identity management providers. The company’s client-side field level encryption can now be used with AWS Key Management Service. Atlas will also be able to support X.509 client certificates.
In addition, Amazon EventBridge will help customers build event-even apps that leverage operational data from Atlas. And AWS CloudFormation support will help Atlas users automate data infrastructure deployments.
