Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) now includes integrated service discovery in EU (Frankfurt), EU (London), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) regions.

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.

Today, service discovery is availablefor all networking modes for EC2 launch type or with AWS Fargate.

To learn more, visit the Amazon ECS Service Discovery documentation.  

You can use Amazon ECS Service Discovery in all AWS regions where Amazon ECS and Amazon Route 53 Auto Naming are available. These now include EU (Frankfurt), EU (London), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) regions in addition to US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), and EU (Ireland) regions where ECS service discovery was already available.
