Announcing General Availability of AWS Outposts
Today we are announcing the general availability of AWS Outposts, a new fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any customer datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience. AWS Outposts is ideal for workloads that need low latency access to on-premises applications or systems, local data processing, or for local data storage needs. You can now run Amazon EC2, Amazon EBS, container-based services such as Amazon ECS and Amazon EKS, database services such as Amazon RDS on AWS Outposts, and analytics services such as Amazon EMR locally on your Outposts. You can seamlessly connect to the broad range of services and tools available in the local AWS Region such as Amazon DynamoDB, AWS CloudFormation, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS CloudTrail, Elastic BeanStalk, Cloud 9, and others to run and manage workloads on Outposts the same way as you do in the cloud today. To order your Outpost, you can log-in to the AWS Management Console and select from a range of pre-validated Outposts configurations offering a mix of Amazon EC2 and Amazon EBS capacity that best suits your application needs and site characteristics. AWS Outposts infrastructure is delivered, installed, managed, and monitored by AWS, removing the need to manually administer, upgrade, and patch your on-premises infrastructure. Starting today, AWS Outposts can be installed and operated in the following countries: United States of America, all EU countries, Switzerland, Norway, Australia, Japan, and South Korea.
