Amazon Elastic Container Registry (Amazon ECR) now emits Amazon EventBridge events when customers successfully replicate images using ECR’s replication capability. Amazon EventBridge is a serverless service that makes it easy for customers to connect their applications using events generated from variety of sources.

With ECR’s replication capability, you can easily copy container images between the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet and the Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. Storing images locally allows you to pull images in-region which makes your applications start faster as pull latency is reduced. Geographically dispersed images also help you meet backup and disaster recovery requirements for your applications. With today's launch, ECR will automatically generate events when image replication is successfully completed across configured source and destination regions and/or accounts. This allows you to know once your replicated images are available for use in the destination registry, and trigger automated actions following replication completion. To receive ECR events, you can write a simple rule in your EventBridge console, and include automated actions that should be triggered when an event matches the rule.

EventBridge support in ECR is available in both Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD and Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet. To get started and learn more about EventBridge events with Amazon ECR, see our user guide.
