We are excited to announce the availability of Amazon Elasticsearch Service in the China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet. With the addition of this region, Amazon Elasticsearch Service is now available in 18 regions globally: US East (N. Virginia, Ohio), US West (Oregon, N. California), Amazon Web Services GovCloud (US), Canada (Central), South America (Sao Paulo), EU (Ireland, London, Frankfurt, Paris), Asia Pacific (Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Seoul, Mumbai), China (Ningxia) operated by NWCD and China (Beijing) operated by Sinnet. 

For customers who are not familiar with the service, Amazon Elasticsearch Service makes it easy to deploy, secure, operate, and scale Elasticsearch for log analytics, full-text search, application monitoring, and more. Amazon Elasticsearch Service is a fully managed service that delivers Elasticsearch’s easy-to-use APIs and real-time analytics capabilities alongside the availability, scalability, and security that production workloads require. The service offers built-in integrations with Kibana, Logstash, and Amazon Web Services services including Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), Amazon Lambda, and Amazon CloudWatch so that you can go from raw data to actionable insights quickly and securely. 

It’s easy to get started with Amazon Elasticsearch Service. You can set up and configure your Amazon Elasticsearch Service domain in minutes from the Amazon Web Services Management Console. Amazon Elasticsearch Service provisions all the resources for your domain and launches it. You can securely access the domain from your VPC or from a public endpoint. The service automatically detects and replaces failed Elasticsearch nodes, reducing the overhead associated with self-managed infrastructure and the Elasticsearch software. Amazon Elasticsearch Service allows you to easily scale your cluster via a single API call or a few clicks in the console. With Amazon Elasticsearch Service, you get direct access to the Elasticsearch open-source API so the code and applications you’re already using with your existing Elasticsearch environments work seamlessly.
