Amazon today said that its region of Amazon Web Services (AWS) data centers in London is now live for customers to use. A wide range of services are available from the EU (London) region, along with basic cloud-based computing and storage resources.
This is the third AWS region to go live in Europe, AWS chief evangelist Jeff Barr wrote in a blog post on the news. AWS now has 16 available regions and 42 availability zones inside of those regions, according to a statement.
AWS first announced the coming of a London region in November 2015.
AWS leads the public cloud infrastructure market. Its biggest competitors, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform, have also been expanding their geographical reach.
