Starting today, customers can use AWS Control Tower in the AWS Asia Pacific (Melbourne) Region. With this launch, AWS Control Tower is available in 28 AWS Regions and the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. AWS Control Tower offers the easiest way to set up and govern a secure, multi-account AWS environment. It simplifies AWS experiences by orchestrating multiple AWS services on your behalf while maintaining the security and compliance needs of your organization. You can set up a multi-account AWS environment within 30 minutes or less, govern new or existing account configurations, gain visibility into compliance status, and enforce controls at scale.

If you are new to AWS Control Tower, you can launch it today in any of the supported regions, and you can use AWS Control Tower to build and govern your multi-account environment in all supported Regions. If you are already using AWS Control Tower and you want to extend its governance features to the newly supported regions in your accounts, you can go to the settings page in your AWS Control Tower dashboard, select your regions, and then update your landing zone. You must then update all accounts that are governed by AWS Control Tower, then your entire landing zone, all accounts, and OUs will be under governance in the new region(s).
