We are delighted to announce that the AWS Management Console for the AWS GovCloud (US) region now supports Amazon Simple Workflow (Amazon SWF)!

The AWS GovCloud (US) region is designed to allow U.S. government agencies and contractors to move more sensitive workloads into the cloud by addressing their specific regulatory and compliance requirements. The console provides an easy-to-use graphical interface to manage your AWS GovCloud (US) resources.

Amazon Simple Workflow is a service to coordinate work across multiple machines. With our APIs, ease-of-use libraries, and control engine, you can build multi-step application components that are independent of any single component’s state and progress. This allows you to change and scale your business logic with greater selectivity and ease – across the AWS Cloud or your own data centers.

With Amazon Simple Workflow, there is no need to write your own state machine or infrastructure code. Instead, you can focus on writing the business logic that makes your application unique. The AWS Management Console provides an easy-to-use graphical interface to manage these powerful capabilities of Amazon SWF. Instructions on how to access the console are available in our Users Guide.

To learn more about the service, please visit the Amazon SWF detail page, the AWS GovCloud (US) home page and contact us to get started!
