Amazon EC2 Systems Manager can now send inventory data to Amazon S3 buckets, enabling data queries and visualization across multiple accounts and regions.
Previously, you had to create custom scripts to send inventory data to Amazon S3 buckets. Now you can select an Amazon S3 bucket and automatically send and aggregate inventory data from multiple accounts and regions. By syncing software inventory to Amazon S3, you can run Amazon Athena queries to gain greater inventory insight, such as understanding application use or reviewing application version compliance. You can also use Amazon QuickSight to visualize your software inventory, enabling you to drill down into queries in a point-and-click fashion. Inventory data synced in Amazon S3 will remain even after the instance is terminated.
Systems Manager is available in all regions.
