EventBridge Pipes provides a simpler, consistent, and cost-effective way to create point-to-point integrations between event producers and consumers, expanding the EventBridge offering beyond event buses and scheduling. EventBridge Pipes makes it easy to connect your applications with data from sources including Amazon SQS, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Managed Streaming Kafka, self-managed Kafka, and Amazon MQ. EventBridge Pipes supports the same target services as event buses, such as Amazon SQS, AWS Step Functions, Amazon Kinesis Data Streams, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, Amazon SNS, Amazon ECS, and event buses themselves.

Creating a pipe is as simple as selecting a source and a target, and you can customize batching, starting position, concurrency, and more, if desired. An optional filtering step allows only specific source events to flow into the pipe and an optional enrichment step using AWS Lambda, AWS Step Functions, API Destinations, or Amazon API Gateway can be used to enrich or transform events before they reach the target. By removing the need to write, manage, and scale undifferentiated integration code, EventBridge Pipes allows you spend your time building your services rather than connecting them.

Amazon EventBridge Pipes is available in the following regions: US East (Ohio and N. Virginia), US West (Oregon and N. California), Canada (Central), Europe (Paris, Stockholm, Ireland, Frankfurt, London, and Milan), Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Tokyo, Seoul, Singapore, Hong Kong, Osaka, Sydney and Jakarta), Middle East (Bahrain and UAE), Africa (Cape Town) and South America (São Paulo).
