What's new at AWS¶
PSAs, in case you missed these launches:
- We launched out-of-the box, best practice alarm recommendations for AWS service-vended metrics in Amazon CloudWatch.
- AWS X-Ray now supports W3C format trace IDs for distributed tracing, which you may find particularly interesting in the context of tracing with OpenTelemetry.
