Amazon EC2 Run Command is now available in China (Beijing) and Asia Pacific (Seoul) regions. AWS customers in these regions can now automate administrative tasks such as executing Linux Shell scripts and commands, running Windows PowerShell commands, installing software or patches, and more across instances. Furthermore, customers can now perform these tasks on instances or virtual machines across any location, enabling hybrid cloud and cross cloud management.

In addition, customers now have access to AWS' best of breed services across all your environments, providing enhanced visibility and control into configuration changes. For example, commands are centrally logged to CloudTrail for easy auditing. With AWS IAM, you can set controls to support delegated administration, ensuring only certain users can perform changes against a fleet of virtual machines.

Amazon EC2 Run Command is completely free to use. You can get started today with a few quick steps from the Amazon EC2 console. For more information on Amazon EC2 Run Command, please read the documentation here.
