Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) service discovery is now available in the AWS US West (N. California) region.

Amazon ECS service discovery makes it easy for your containerized services to discover and connect with each other. Amazon ECS creates and manages a registry of service names using the Route53 Auto Naming API so you can refer to a service by name in your code and write DNS queries to have the service name resolve to the service’s endpoint at runtime.

Amazon ECS service discovery is natively integrated with Amazon ECS. Learn more in the Amazon ECS documentation.

You can use Amazon ECS Service Discovery in all AWS regions where Amazon ECS and Amazon Route 53 Auto Naming are available. These include US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), and EU (Ireland) regions. For more information on AWS regions and services, please visit the AWS global region table.
