Amazon Zocalo – Now Generally Available

By Jeff Barr

Amazon Zocalo has been available in a Limited Preview since early July
(see my blog post,
Amazon Zocalo –
Document Storage and Sharing for the Enterprise
to learn more). During the
Limited Preview, many AWS users expressed interest in evaluating Zocalo and were
admitted in to the Preview on a space-available basis.

AWS customers. You can sign up today and start using
Zocalo now. There’s a 30-day free trial (200 GB of storage per user for up to 50 users); after
that you pay $5 per user per month
(see the Zocalo Pricing page for more information).

As part of this move to general availability, we are also announcing
that AWS CloudTrail now records calls made to the Zocalo API. This
API is currently internal, but we plan to expose it in the
future. If you are interested in building applications that work
with the Zocalo API, please express your interest by emailing us
at We
are very interested in learning more about the kinds of applications
that you are thinking about building.

early drafts to smooth out any kinks, and then share it with a wider audience for
final review. When multiple reviewers provide feedback on the same document, Zocalo’s
Feedback tab lets me scan, summarize, and respond to the feedback quickly and
