VM::EC2::Region(3) Object describing an Amazon region


use VM::EC2;
$ec2 = VM::EC2->new(...);
@regions = $ec2->describe_regions();
$region = $regions[0];
$name = $region->regionName;
$url = $region->regionEndpoint;
@zones = $region->zones;


This object represents an Amazon EC2 region, and is returned by VM::EC2->describe_regions().


These object methods are supported:

 regionName      -- Name of the region, e.g. "eu-west-1"
 regionEndpoint  -- URL endpoint for AWS API calls, e.g. 
 zones           -- List of availability zones within this
                    region, as VM::EC2::AvailabilityZone

Note that you should prefix the endpoint with http:// or https:// before using it to change the VM::EC2 endpoint with the endpoint() call. If you do not do so, then https:// will be assumed.


When used in a string context, this object will interpolate the regionName.
