AWS Control Tower is now available in 3 additional AWS Regions: Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), and Asia Pacific (Tokyo). AWS Control Tower is also available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (London), Europe (Stockholm), and Asia Pacific (Singapore). With this launch, AWS Control Tower is now available in 13 AWS Regions.
AWS 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 AWS Control Tower, you can launch it today in any of the supported Regions. During the launch, you can select the Regions where you want AWS Control Tower to build and govern your multi-account environment.
If you are already using AWS Control Tower and you want to extend AWS Control Tower governance features (such as logging and monitoring capabilities, and detective guardrail coverage) to one or more of the newly supported Regions, you can go to the Landing Zone Settings page in your Control Tower dashboard, select the additional Regions for AWS Control Tower to govern, and update your landing zone to version 2.7. After updating your landing zone, you must then update all accounts that are governed by AWS Control Tower.
