We are excited to announce that AWS CloudTrail is now available in Beijing, China region. AWS customers can use CloudTrail to troubleshoot operational and security incidents, track changes to AWS resources and demonstrate compliance with internal or external policies. Customers can look up API calls in their AWS account and answer important questions such as Who made a particular API call, When was the API call made, What is the source IP address of the API call and Which resources were acted upon in the API call.

CloudTrail records API activity and delivers it to an S3 bucket, so log files are stored inexpensively and durably. Customers can specify their own S3 object expiration policies or life cycle configuration policies and move the log files to Glacier for longer term retention.

For more information, go to the AWS CloudTrail detail page for the Beijing, China region.
