theCUBE | AWS Summit London 2019

theCUBE covered the AWS London Summit 2019 in early May. This one-day event attracted 12,000 AWS customers, partners, practitioners and companies within the AWS ecosystem. Summits are like mini re:Invent conferences with a heavy emphasis on AWS features, innovations, customer stories and the benefits of cloud computing. We interviewed a number of AWS execs, customers, partners, startups and pundits to extract the signal from the noise. Here are the highlights from the event.
