When Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched its API tracking service CloudTrail last November, it was only available for US regions. Australian customers will finally get a crack at the service shortly, with chief technology officer Dr Werner Vogels telling attendees at this week’s AWS Summit that it will be launched for the Sydney region “next month”.
As well as being useful for performance management, CloudTrail can be helpful in tracking compliance issues, Vogels said. “The delivery of CloudTrail this year really helped our customers solve a number of issues.”
CloudTrail itself is free, but customers have to pay for S3 storage and SNS notifications generated by the service.
