AWS Outposts is now supported in AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any customer datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility.

The AWS GovCloud (US) Regions are designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads in the cloud for public and private sector customers that have U.S. federal, state, and local government compliance requirements.

Federal, state, and local government agencies, and commercial customers in regulated industries can now connect their Outposts to AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. With Outposts they can use AWS Services to process data and run applications in on-premises locations that they own, manage, and control. Outposts enables them to run workloads that need low latency access to on-premises systems locally while connecting back to the AWS GovCloud Regions for application management. They can also use Outposts and AWS Services to manage and process data that remain on premises.
