Amazon Cloud Control API has expanded its availability to the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. Cloud Control API is a set of common application programming interfaces (APIs) that enable developers to manage their cloud infrastructure in a consistent manner and leverage the latest Amazon Web Services capabilities faster. Using Cloud Control API, developers can manage the lifecycle of hundreds of Amazon Web Services resources with five consistent APIs instead of using distinct service-specific APIs. With this launch, Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN) Partners can now automate how their solutions integrate with existing and future Amazon Web Services through a one-time integration, instead of spending weeks of custom development work as new resources become available. Terraform by HashiCorp and Pulumi have integrated their solutions as part of this launch.

Cloud Control API enables developers to create, read, update, delete, and list (CRUDL) Amazon Web Services resources with consistent APIs. Resources include schema (properties and handler permissions) and handlers that control API interactions with the underlying services. Using Cloud Control API, developers have a consistent method to manage supported services throughout their lifecycle, so there are fewer APIs to learn as developers add services to their infrastructure. For instance, developers can create any supported cloud resource using Cloud Control API’s CreateResource API be it an S3 bucket, Lambda function, or over a hundred Amazon Web Services resources available on the Amazon CloudFormation Registry. Developers can move faster by eliminating the need to author, maintain, and set up custom code across distinct service-specific APIs. Furthermore, Cloud Control API is up-to-date with the latest Amazon Web Services resources as soon as they are available on Amazon CloudFormation, enabling APN partners to integrate their own solutions with Cloud Control API just once, and then automatically access new Amazon Web Services resources without additional integration work.

You can use the Amazon CLI or Amazon SDKs to get started with Cloud Control API. To learn more:
