Ltd (NWCD) Announce a Second AWS Region in China, Now Available to Customers <p> Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an company (NASDAQ:AMZN), and Ningxia Western Cloud Data Technology Co. Ltd. (NWCD), a cloud services provider in China, today announced a strategic technology partnership and the launch of the AWS China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD. NWCD operates and provides services from the AWS China (Ningxia) Region, in full compliance with Chinese regulations. Founded in 2015, NWCD is a licensed datacenter and cloud services provider, based in Ningxia, China. NWCD joins Sinnet, the operator of the AWS China (Beijing) Region, as AWS’s second operating partner in China. Through these relationships, AWS provides its industry-leading technology, guidance, and expertise to NWCD and Sinnet, while NWCD and Sinnet operate and provide AWS Cloud services to local customers. While the cloud services offered in both AWS China Regions are the same as those available in other AWS Regions, the AWS China Regions are isolated from all other AWS Regions and operated by AWS’s Chinese partners separately from all other AWS Regions. Customers using the AWS China Regions enter into customer agreements with Sinnet in Beijing and NWCD in Ningxia, rather than with AWS. Existing customers can choose the AWS China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and/or the AWS China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD, by selecting either AWS China Region directly from the Management Console, while new customers can request an account at to begin using either AWS China Region.</p>Mon, 11 Dec 2017 23:24:01 +0000general:products/amazon-snsaws@amazon.com RDS now supports MariaDB Minor Versions 10.1.26 and 10.0.32<p><a href="">Amazon RDS for MariaDB</a> now supports MariaDB minor versions 10.1.26 and 10.0.32.

Previously, you could only log Lambda management events, which provide information on when and by whom a function was created, modified, or deleted. Now, you can also record Lambda data events and get additional details on when and by whom an Invoke API call was made and which Lambda function was executed. All Lambda data events are delivered to an Amazon S3 bucket and Amazon CloudWatch Events, which allows you to respond to events recorded by CloudTrail. For example, you can quickly determine which Lambda functions were executed in the past three days and identify the source of the Invoke API calls. You can take immediate action to restrict Invoke API calls to known users or roles if you detect inappropriate Lambda activity.</p> <p>You can turn on logging for AWS Lambda data events using the AWS CloudTrail console, AWS CLI, and SDKs. You can view and select which Lambda functions get logged by creating a new trail or editing an existing trail.</p> <p>Please visit <a href="" target="_blank">AWS CloudTrail documentation page</a> for more information.</p>Wed, 06 Dec 2017 22:49:37 +0000general:products/aws-cloudtrailaws@amazon.com RDS for SQL Server now supports SQL Server 2017 and SQL Server 2016 SP1 CU5 is now available in AWS China (Beijing) region, operated by Sinnet<p>Amazon RDS for SQL Server now supports Microsoft SQL Server 2017 and SQL Server 2016 SP1 CU5 for Express, Web, Standard and Enterprise Editions on the Windows Operating Systems.
