AWS CloudFormation has updated support for three services. You can now provision the following features using CloudFormation:

Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) updated support

  • Specify one or more transition rules for S3 buckets with versioning enabled. These define how S3 manages objects during their lifetime, such as automated transition of less-frequently accessed objects to low-cost storage alternatives and scheduled deletions.

AWS Lambda updated support

  • Enable Lambda functions to access resources in a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
  • Publish a version of a Lambda function. Versioning allows you to better manage your in-production Lambda function code by enabling you to publish one or more versions of your Lambda function.
  • Create an alias that points to a Lambda function version that you specify. An alias is a pointer to a specific Lambda function version.

Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) updated support

  • Define the properties of Amazon Elastic Block Store storage volumes attached to your Amazon EMR instances, such as their configuration or whether they are I/O optimized.
