We are happy to announce the immediate availability of Amazon CloudWatch Logs in the AWS China (Beijing) region. 

With CloudWatch Logs, you can monitor and troubleshoot your systems and applications using log data from other AWS services along with your own system, application, and custom log files. Logs are streamed in near real-time to highly durable, low-cost storage. In the Amazon CloudWatch Console, you can view and search your logs plus configure metrics extraction for specific phrases, values or patterns in your log data. 

To get started with CloudWatch Logs, opt in to your AWS service logs or install the CloudWatch Logs agent for Amazon Linux, CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and Ubuntu. You can also use the Amazon EC2 Config service for Windows to start monitoring logs on Microsoft Windows Server. 

To learn more about how CloudWatch Logs can help you better understand and operate your systems and applications, see the Amazon CloudWatch product details. To get started with Amazon CloudWatch Logs subscriptions, see the Amazon CloudWatch Logs Developer guide.
