AWS-oriented developers will be able to speed along their work a lot more when they get their hands on the new free tools
Amazon Web Services has brought some lubrication to cloud software development with a new compute service that will save time and repetitive work for developers by automating compute resources for them.
AWS Lambda also runs code automatically in response to events, making it easier for developers to build, test and manage cloud applications that need to respond quickly to new information. Virtually every new enterprise cloud application now falls into that category.
The company also launched Amazon EC2 Container Service, a highly scalable, high-performance container management service that AWS claims makes it easier to run and manage distributed applications using Docker containers in its cloud.
The Seattle-based Web services giant made the announcements at its re:Invent 2014 conference at the Venetian in Las Vegas.
