Amazon Web Services Launches in Germany

Amazon Web Services launched its new AWS EU (Frankfurt) region, its 11th technology infrastructure region globally for AWS and the second region in the European Union (EU).  AWS also operates in Ireland.

AWS said all its data centers are designed, built, and regularly audited to meet rigorous compliance standards, including ISO 27001, SOC 1 (Formerly SAS 70), PCI DSS Level 1, and many more, providing high levels of security for all AWS customers. The new AWS EU (Frankfurt) region consists of two separate Availability Zones at launch. Availability Zones refer to data centers in separate, distinct locations within a single region that are engineered to be operationally independent of other Availability Zones, with independent power, cooling, and physical security, and are connected via a low latency network.

The AWS EU region in Frankfurt operates on carbon neutral electricity.  It also conforms with EU data protection laws, ensuring that data remains within Germany.
“Our European business continues to grow dramatically,” said Andy Jassy, Senior Vice President, Amazon Web Services. “By opening a second European region, and situating it in Germany, we’re enabling German customers to move more workloads to AWS, allowing European customers to architect across multiple EU regions, and better balancing our substantial European growth.”

The new Frankfurt region provides a broad suite of AWS services, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon RDS, Amazon Redshift, AWS CloudHSM, Amazon Glacier, Auto Scaling, Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon Storage Gateway, Amazon Elastic Map Reduce (EMR), Amazon Kinesis, Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM), AWS CloudTrail, Amazon CloudWatch, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, AWS CloudFormation, AWS OpsWorks, AWS CloudSearch, Amazon SWF, Amazon SQS, Amazon SNS, AWS Direct Connect, and Amazon VPC.
