Amazon Web Services has released CloudTrail, an API that it says provides tracking and greater visibility into what users are doing. It seems to be intended to complement Amazon CloudWatch, Frederic Lardinois writes. Separately, the Amazon AppStream service for mobile developers was unveiled at a developer conference. Amazon says AppStream lets developers "build high-fidelity, graphically rich applications that run on a wide variety of devices, start instantly, and have access to all of the compute and storage resources of the AWS Cloud."
