You can now copy your Amazon AppStream 2.0 images across AWS Regions. Using the same image across AWS Regions makes it simpler to manage global deployments of your applications on AppStream 2.0. By deploying your applications in AWS Regions closer to your users, you provide them with a more responsive experience.  

To copy an image to another AWS Region, launch the AppStream 2.0 console and select the region that contains your existing image. In the navigation pane, choose Images, select your existing image, click Actions, select Copy, and then pick your target AWS Region. You can also use the CopyImage API to programmatically copy images. Visit Tag and Copy an Image for more information.

This feature is available today in all AWS Regions where AppStream 2.0 is offered. There are no charges for copying an image across regions, but pricing for AppStream 2.0 usage does vary based on the region where your applications are deployed. AppStream 2.0 offers pay-as-you-go pricing, please see Amazon AppStream 2.0 Pricing for more information, and try our sample applications.
