AWS Step Functions is now available in AWS GovCloud (US). AWS Step Functions makes it easier to coordinate the components of distributed systems, serverless applications, and microservices using visual workflows. Building applications from individual components that each perform a discrete function lets you scale and change applications quickly.

AWS Step Functions provides a graphical console to arrange and visualize the components of your application as a series of steps. It automatically triggers and tracks each step, and retries when there are errors, so your application executes in order and as expected.

For a complete list of regions where AWS Step Functions is offered, see AWS Regions. You can build your first state machine in minutes using the console, AWS SDKs, or an HTTP API. For a quick introduction to Step Functions, watch this short video, or see the AWS Step Functions webpage
