Today, AWS announces Systems Manager Explorer availability to customers in AWS GovCloud (US) Regions

Explorer is an operations dashboard providing you with an at-a-glance graphical view of relevant operations data, such as EC2 instance summaries and their patch compliance. With Explorer, you can view your operations data to see where attention, investigation, and remediation may be required.

Using Explorer, you can gain insight into your operations issues and sort them by category to focus on issues relevant to you. You can see how these issues trend over time, helping you determine where action is required. Explorer also gives a summary of your EC2 instances and their patch compliance to help you ensure you are up to date. All Explorer data can also be queried directly by API, allowing you to create your own customized reports.

Systems Manager Explorer is available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (N. California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), China (Beijing), China (Ningxia), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), and South America (São Paulo) AWS Regions.
