Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) introduces two new features that can help to protect your sender reputation: email pausing and reputation metrics. You can use API operations to automatically pause email sending when reputation metrics cross certain thresholds. These features are now available in the following AWS Regions: US West (Oregon), US East (N. Virginia), and EU (Ireland). Read more on the new SES features.
Amazon Route 53 releases API to view service limits: hosted zones, health checks, reusable delegation sets, traffic policies, and traffic policy instances. You can watch your usage and compare it against your current limits, so you can ask for an increase well before reaching a limit.
Amazon EC2 is announcing an increase to the monthly service commitment in the EC2 Service Level Agreement, for both EC2 and EBS, to 99.99%. This change is effective immediately in all regions, and is available to all EC2 customers.
