I wanted to share a little bit about myself. I am an innovator and builder. I am a patent holder. Prior to joining AWS, I ran a startup, developed a Machine Learning MVP, and worked within the Ecosystem of Watson, Cloud, and IoT, helping to build corpus of knowledge for training modules.
Transition: This year marks an important year for us, as we celebrate our 10 year anniversary of running Windows Workloads on AWS
Windows Server 2019 Windows Server 1809 (semi-anual cannel release with containers) Windows Server 2019 base with Containers SQL Server 2017 Amazon Linux with SQL Server 2017 Ubuntu Server 16.04 with SQL Server 2017

These launches represent key components of a larger puzzle, combining enhancements across experiences, migration and modernization, and integration to offer you the best in running Windows on AWS.
Transition: it all starts with experiences!
AWS offers flexible cost optimization choices for customers and have options that best fits your needs. We categorize licenses into 3 types..
License-included: You can buy Windows Server, or Windows Server + SQL Server from AWS with EC2 Instances Current and legacy versions available from AWS Marketplace or AWS Management Console License costs included in AWS bill AWS handles license compliance
Using License Mobility through Software Assurance or dedicated AWS infrastructure, you can save money on existing Microsoft licenses on AWS and derive a number of benefits:
Bring your own licenses: Can use License Mobility through Software Assurance or Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts Extend license investments to the cloud and pay only for AWS services you use You are responsible for license compliance
Using AWS Config as the data source you can track configuration changes against physical resources such as sockets and cores. Before you begin launching BYOL instances onto AWS, ensure AWS Config has been enabled to record any changes. AWS Config keeps track of the changes that occur, including the instances and corresponding AMI IDs that ran. These changes are paired with Host level data, such as the Host ID and the number of sockets and physical cores installed. AWS Config will also keep track of instance tags. We recommend that you tag your instances with a meaningful identifier if you would like a human-readable way to identify BYOL instances in your AWS Config logs. Visit: https://aws.amazon.com/config/ for more information on AWS Config.
Windows on AWS continues to provide innovative offerings at a competitive TCO on a superior platform trusted by thousands of enterprises. We offer enhanced experience, reliability, performance, availability, and choice, and continue to make AWS the best place to run Windows workloads.
Transition: to learn more, there are a variety of resources and tools available here at re:Invent and when you get back to the office.
Get started by attending several deep dive sessions, which are recommended here. You can also access previews or betas for different products by visiting the ”Windows New” page. Also stop by our Windows Booth to say hi!
Transition: I want to thank you for joining us today. And I want to thank you for being an AWS customer. For giving us feedback that has helped us deliver the innovation you need to realize your business objectives over the last 10 years and for decades and decades to come.
