We have extended AWS CloudFormation support for a few additional features of Amazon RDS, Amazon EBS, and Amazon ElastiCache.

You can now use CloudFormation to specify which AWS KMS master key to use when creating EBS encrypted volumes.

CloudFormation now allows you to specify if you want to create your ElastiCache Memcached cache cluster nodes in a single Availability Zone or across multiple Availability Zones. You can create a list of the different Availability Zones that you want to place each node. Learn more here.

CloudFormation now supports Amazon RDS Event Subscriptions. You can now enable Event Subscriptions to get notifications for RDS through Amazon SNS. You can also indicate whether to encrypt your database instance and specify which AWS Key Management Service (KMS) master key to use for the encryption, and you can use CloudFormation to specify the character set to associate with a specific RDS instance.
