We are pleased to announce that Run Command has been expanded to the following 6 regions: US West (N. California), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney) and South America (Sao Paulo). This is in addition to existing support for US East (N. Virgina), US West (Oregon), and Europe (Ireland). Run Command provides a simple way to securely manage the configuration of your AWS EC2 instances and lets you automate simple tasks like executing Shell scripts on Linux, running PowerShell commands on Windows, installing software or patches, and more.

In addition, Run Command now supports RHEL 6.5, CentOS 6.3 and 7.1 along with Amazon Linux, Ubuntu 12 and 14, RHEL 7.x and all versions of Windows Server. You can start using Run Command today in the new regions from the EC2 Console or the AWS CLI or API.

To get started, please visit the EC2 Run Command webpage and the getting started documentation.
