The Amazon CloudWatch Events service is now available in the EU (Frankfurt) AWS region.

Amazon CloudWatch Events provides a stream of events describing changes to your AWS resources, such as an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance coming into service or failing a system health check, EC2 instances added to a deployment by Auto Scaling, or suspicious API call patterns being logged in AWS CloudTrail.

Amazon CloudWatch Events is also available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo) regions. 

You can get started monitoring system events in the CloudWatch Events console, or by reading our documentation.
