Amazon EventBridge is a serverless event bus that makes it easy to connect applications together using data from your own applications, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, and AWS services. EventBridge delivers a stream of real-time data from event sources, such Zendesk, Datadog, or Pagerduty, and routes that data to targets like AWS Lambda. You can set up routing rules to determine where to send your data to build application architectures that react in real time to all of your data sources. EventBridge allows you to build event-driven architectures, which are loosely coupled and distributed. This improves developer agility as well as application resiliency. EventBridge makes it easy to build event-driven applications because it takes care of event ingestion and delivery, security, authorization, and error-handling for you. EventBridge leverages the CloudWatch Events API, so CloudWatch Events users can access their existing default bus, rules, and events in the new EventBridge console, as well as in the CloudWatch Events console.

EventBridge supports 10 SaaS application partners and 90+ AWS Services as event sources. To become an EventBridge SaaS integration partner, please visit the EventBridge partner page.  

There is no up-front cost commitment or minimum fee for using EventBridge, and you pay only for the events published to your event bus. All state change events published by AWS services are free.

You can get started with EventBridge using the AWS Management Console, Command Line Interface (CLI), or SDK. You can create a new event bus and receive events from SaaS applications in minutes; then simply create a rule to match events from a list of AWS services or SaaS applications and proceed to set up targets for your events.

EventBridge is generally available today in the following regions: US East (Ohio and N. Virginia), US West (Oregon and N. California), Canada (Central), EU (Stockholm, Paris, Ireland, Frankfurt, and London), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore, and Sydney), and South America (Sao Paulo).
