You can now provision Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts in the AWS GovCloud (US) Region. Dedicated Hosts are physical servers with EC2 instance capacity fully dedicated for your use. Dedicated Hosts can help you reduce costs by allowing you to use your existing server-bound software licenses, including Windows Server, SQL Server, and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, and can also help you meet license compliance requirements. For more information on Dedicated Host availability and pricing, visit the Dedicated Hosts pricing page.

In addition to AWS GovCloud (US) Region, Dedicated Hosts are currently available in US East (Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (Northern California), Canada (Central), EU (Ireland), EU (London), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), and South America (São Paulo) regions.
