Amazon Systems Manager Distributor is a new feature that you can use to securely store and distribute software packages, such as software agents, in your accounts. Distributor integrates with existing Systems Manager features to simplify and scale the package distribution, installation, and update process. 

With Distributor, you manage your software packages from a centralized location. Software packages are stored in Systems Manager, providing a centralized repository with version control. Software packages can also be shared with other v accounts in your organization. By using Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) policies, you can control who can manage and install the packages in your Amazon Web Services account. You can use Run Command to install packages on demand, or you can use State Manager to update packages on target instances automatically or on a schedule. 

The Amazon Systems Manager Distributor feature is available in Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region operated by Sinnet and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region operated by NWCD. This feature is priced on a pay-per-use model. See the Amazon Systems Manager Pricing Page for details.
