Is there an actual use for this? seems like its another useless
service from the aws team instead on focusing on improving their
interfaces, api's and pricing options.

As many large enterprise shops migrate to cloud, they need a way
to handle data classification and sprawl in their s3 buckets.
Magic tools that can label data for them is more useful than
nothing, and those big shops wont blink at the pricetag.

Not cheap: https://aws.amazon.com/macie/pricing/After first GB, $5
per GB processed by the content classification engine

Dear aws,Could you guys take it easy for a moment with spawning new
weird services like horny hamsters, reflect on the ~372 you already
have, and fix some aspects of them? How about letting me add basic
auth to S3 or CloudFront? How about non-expiring signed s3 urls?
How about restricted access to api-gateway? Hey, how about fixing
Athena to stop throwing random errors, and actually support the
fully featured presto syntax? I could extend this list with 64
items more without even opening my dedicated aws complains

And if they decide to bring out a new service they could for once
continue building on one of the 10 existing different UI design
languages instead of introducing yet another "sporty user

You can implement basic auth using Lambda@Edge.You could also
implement your own non-expiring signed URLs with Lambda@Edge too.

Yes. I know how to solve all the issues on my list. But I'm
paying aws a fortune for them to solve my problems, not for me
to find workarounds./end rant

You're more likely to get a big promotion for creating a bold new
v1.0 than refining and polishing v3.5. This seems to be a big
problem with Google, too. Out of whack incentivization at work, I
suppose.I wish more companies rewarded employees based upon NPS
or some similar metric. I think that would address your complaint
in fairly short order.

If you have examples for the Google side, I'd legitimately love
to hear 'em (email dollars@ if the list is too long for
character limit).This has been far from my experience
internally and what we're trying to share with users, but that
doesn't mean we can't also improve.

How many chat apps and platforms has Google launched over the
past 10 years? I can't even keep track of them anymore. Here
are six'ish: https://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/google-
chat-video-apps-...Edit: I don't have any complaints about
GCP. I think you folks have done a great job of clearly
positioning and segmenting your product lines. Props to you

I don't think their svm classifier would work over encrypted data,
so if a service stores data encrypted at rest is this useful at

> once your data has been classified by Macie, it assigns each data
item a business value... and a thousand startup founders started
the process, looked at the results, put their heads down on their
desks, and wept quietly.

I don't get it. Are they crying because they have a ton of
unsecured PII or because all their data is worthless?
