Amazon CloudFront in China announces support for AWS CloudFormation templates and Amazon CloudWatch real-time metrics. With this launch, customers in China can now use CloudFormation templates to create CloudFront distributions with Amazon S3 origins or custom origins. CloudFormation simplifies provisioning and management on AWS. Customers can create templates for their desired service or application architectures and use those templates for reliable and repeatable provisioning. Customers can find sample templates and template snippets on the AWS CloudFormation Templates page.  

In addition, customers in China can now monitor, alarm and receive notifications on the operational performance of CloudFront using CloudWatch in the AWS China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. Both features launching today are now available to AWS customers at no additional cost.  

To get started with CloudFront in China, go to Amazon CloudFront. For documentation, see Amazon CloudFront in the AWS services in China guide.
