AWS makes Arm-powered Lambda functions generally available
AWS has made the option of using Graviton2 Arm-based processors for Lambda functions generally available. The functionality is offered in Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Frankfurt, Ireland, London, North Virginia, Ohio, and Oregon availability zones. The cloud giant is claiming that using Arm processors provides up to 19% higher performance at a 20% cost reduction compared to x86.
New Azure Active Directory password brute-forcing flaw has no fix

Using the new service, developers can create backups plans to schedule periodic backups of both application data and GKE cluster state data, and restore each backup to a cluster in the same or in a different region.
