Amazon Web Services created a new “AWS Compute Services” team, according to an internal email seen by Insider, which combined services like its Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and container and serverless products like Lambda into one organization.
EC2 allows customers to easily scale up and down their cloud usage on AWS using virtual servers, while Lambda and other serverless products allow their applications to run in the cloud without having to manage servers. Amazon declined to comment for this story.
The new move to combine these services into one team as well as create a new team focused on helping customers use AI-powered technology on their cloud comes as the company struggles to respond to the AI boom, as reported A recent insider. Deepak Singh, the vice president who previously ran AWS containers and serverless products, is leading the new AI organization.
“Over the years, we have always worked closely across these organizations, and with this change I believe we will be even more aligned and have a better understanding of each other’s goals and challenges,” Dave Brown, AWS vice president in charge of EC2 and who will run the new organization, wrote in a May 25 email. “This will allow us to accelerate our journey across the various services, driving more efficiency, and delivering more value to our customers.”
Vice president of Serverless and Compute Holly Mesrobian now reports directly to Brown. She continues to run services such as Elastic Container Services under general manager Nick Coult, Lambda under general manager Ajay Nair, and Serverless Compute Fabric under director Spencer Dillard, Brown’s email said. The Events and Workflow team under director Usman Khalid will transition into the Mesrobian team.
Barry Cooks, the vice president who runs the Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service, now reports to Brown. Jody Gibney, the general manager in charge of the Elastic Container Registry, reports to Cooks.
