We’re excited to announce today that we’ve added support for Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) to the AWS Management Console. Amazon SNS makes it easy to manage and send notifications from the cloud. This service offers ‘push’ notifications and pub-sub messaging which can be used to support distributed applications or exchange time-sensitive data with users or Amazon EC2 instances. The AWS Management Console adds the simplicity of a point-and-click web interface. You can now create topics, add subscribers, and send notifications – all from your browser. In addition, the AWS Management Console makes it easy to publish messages over your protocol of choice (HTTP, email, SQS protocol, etc.) and edit topic policies to control publisher and subscriber access. The AWS Management Console is available free of charge at: http://console.aws.amazon.com.
