The Amazon CloudWatch Events service is now available in the US West (N. California) and Asia Pacific (Singapore) regions.  

Amazon CloudWatch Events provides a stream of events describing changes to your AWS resources, such as an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance starting, stopping, or failing a system health check, Auto Scaling adding instances to an EC2 deployment, or routing suspicious API call patterns being logged by AWS CloudTrail to an Amazon Kinesis stream for detailed analysis.

This enables you to respond quickly to application availability issues or resource changes, with notifications from AWS services delivered in near-real-time. You simply write rules to indicate which events are of interest to your application and what automated action to take when a rule matches an event, such as stopping an EC2 instance, sending an Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) message, or adding the event to an Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) queue.

You may also schedule cron-like events, such as taking an Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volume snapshot every hour, at intervals down to 1-minute. 

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

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