You can now view your AWS resources such as Instances, VPCs, Subnets, Security Groups, Volumes across AWS Regions. Previously, finding specific resources, monitoring for their status or taking inventory in the console was manual and time consuming. You had to know which region a particular instance resided in, or had to manually switch across multiple different regions to look for it. Global View provides visibility to all your resources in a single pane of glass across AWS regions. It helps monitor resource counts, notice abnormalities sooner rather than later, and find stray resources.

Global View can be accessed from the EC2 and VPC Consoles. It provides the ability to search across resources by resource ID or tag values. You can filter resources by regions or resource type. Once a resource is located, you can access the existing management screens of the selected resource in the right region.

This capability is currently available for 5 resources: Instances, VPCs, Subnets, Security Groups, Volumes. in all AWS Regions except Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region and AWS GovCloud (US).
