AWS Control Tower is now available in the AWS Asia Pacific (Sydney) Region, in addition to US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Sydney).

Control Tower offers the easiest way to set up and govern a new, secure, multi-account AWS environment. It builds a landing zone that is based on AWS best practices, and customers can enable its governance features such as guardrails, centralized logging and monitoring, and preconfigured VPCs in supported Regions in new accounts that they create using AWS Control Tower’s account factory.

If you are new to Control Tower, you can launch it today in any of the supported Regions.

If you are already using Control Tower and want to extend its governance features (such as logging and monitoring capabilities and detective guardrail coverage) to the Asia Pacific (Sydney) Region in your accounts, you can go to the Settings page in your Control Tower dashboard, update your landing zone to the latest release, and then update your provisioned accounts.

For a full list of regions where AWS Control Tower is available, see the AWS Region Table. To learn more, visit the AWS Control Tower homepage or see the Control Tower User Guide.
