Amazon S3 on Outposts is now available in both AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. The expansion into the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions allows U.S. government agencies and contractors to move sensitive workloads onto their AWS Outposts by addressing their specific regulatory and compliance requirements for object storage.

Amazon S3 on Outposts helps you meet your low latency, local data processing, and data residency needs by delivering object storage to your Outpost on premises. Using the S3 APIs and features, S3 on Outposts makes it easier to store, secure, tag, retrieve, report on, and control access to the data on your Outposts. AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, services, and tools to virtually any data center, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience.

For a list of all regions where S3 on Outposts is available, see the Outposts Region table. To learn more about S3 on Outposts, visit our documentation.
