Amazon EBS direct APIs for Snapshots now available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions

Starting today, Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) direct APIs for Snapshots are available in the AWS GovCloud (US) Regions. Using Amazon EBS direct APIs, customers can create snapshots of their block storage data, regardless of where it resides, including data on-premises. This enables customers to achieve business continuity in AWS at a lower cost and use the existing Fast Snapshot Restore feature to quickly recover this data into Amazon EBS volumes for use cases like disaster recovery.
