Amazon’s cloud computing service is already huge, they provide access to cloud services that amass the entire Earth, providing websites with a way of getting data to their users at speed, with minimal latency and faster loading times.
Today, Amazon AWS announced that they will be expanding this service even further.
Some time ago, they revealed that they would be launching a new data center in the UK by the end of 2016 and that time is now.
Today AWS launched its Europe (London) region that will allow AWS to offer even better services throughout Europe and the US, building upon the current offering, that includes Ireland and Frankfurt in Europe.
This now means that AWS offers access to a total of 16 regions, with a total of 42 availability zones to take advantage of around the world.
This is an increase of 11 regions in a year.
The new London region will offer access to all of AWS’ core services, however, some of its more advanced tools won’t be available for access just yet.
Amazon CTO Werner Vogels explained more about it with the following:
“With the launch of the AWS Europe (London) Region, AWS can enable many more UK enterprise, public sector and startup customers to reduce IT costs, address data locality needs, and embark on rapid transformations in critical new areas, such as big data analysis and Internet of Things.”
