Amazon Launches Amazon Sumerian for Developing AR, VR, and 3D Apps


It leverages AWS services such as Amazon Lex, Amazon Polly, AWS Lambda, AWS IoT, and Amazon DynamoDB.

The company announced this new service at "Midnight Madness" pre-show event as reported by TechCrunch.

The software can also handle animation as well, so that developers are able to create 3D characters that can guide users through a scene by narrating scripts or answering questions.

The news follows less than a week after Fortinet announced the addition of 11 technology providers to its Fabric-Ready Partner Program, including ADVA Optical Networking, Bradford Networks, Cyber Observer, CSPi, FireMon, ForeScout Technologies, Intel Corporation, Microsoft Azure, Ribbon Communications (formerly Sonus Networks) and SentinelOne. The platform provides a consistent set of services - elastic load balancing (L4-L7), global server load balancing, DNS services, traffic encryption and security, and real-time application performance analytics - across both on-premises data centers and cloud. The competency already has 18 partners, including Telstra.

Tuesday's announcement includes enhancements in four key areas: The service, which was previously available only in the AWS US West Region, is now available in the AWS US East Region.

Enterprise Contract for AWS Marketplace is now available in preview to interested enterprise customers and will be generally available to all sellers and enterprise buyers who choose to accept the standardised enterprise contract terms in the first quarter of 2018.
