AWS Config Rules is a set of governance capabilities that allow IT Administrators to define guidelines for provisioning and configuring AWS resources and then continuously monitor compliance with those guidelines. You can choose from a collection of AWS managed rules, which are predefined, customizable rules that are based on common best practices. AWS Config now offers a new managed rule that checks Amazon EC2 instances for a specified tenancy (host, dedicated or default). You can provide an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) ID to check EC2 instances launched only from that AMI and also specify an EC2 Dedicated Host ID to check whether your EC2 instances are launched on that EC2 dedicated host. This rule enables you to assess compliance with your server-bound software licenses by checking whether your EC2 instances are launched on a physical server dedicated to your use.  

In addition, the AWS Config console now supports Simplified Chinese language. Customers who prefer to interact with the AWS Config console in Simplified Chinese can do so using the Language Selector in the AWS Management Console footer. 

To start using these new capabilities, visit the AWS Config console. You can also download the latest AWS SDK or CLI to create the new rule.
