With today’s announcement, you can now use CloudFormation templates to setup, run, and clean-up AWS SimSpace Weaver simulations. AWS SimSpace Weaver is a fully managed compute service that helps customers deploy large spatial simulations in the cloud. Launched at AWS re:Invent 2022, AWS SimSpace Weaver allows customers to create seamless virtual worlds with millions of objects that can interact with one another in real time without worrying about managing the back-end infrastructure. AWS CloudFormation is a service that enables you to model, provision, and manage AWS and third-party resources by treating infrastructure as code.
You can create CloudFormation templates to provision new simulations, or to quickly launch a series of simulations with different settings and schemas. You can use a template to build an entire architecture that combines your SimSpace Weaver resources with other AWS services. CloudFormation makes it simple to clean-up your cloud resources when you no longer need them.
AWS SimSpace Weaver support for AWS CloudFormation is generally available in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Ireland), and Europe (Stockholm).
