AWS Opens 50th Availability Zone and 3rd in London

AWS has announced the opening of its 50th AWS Availability Zone, with the addition of a third AZ to the EU (London) Region.

The AWS Cloud now spans 50 Availability Zones within 18 geographic Regions around the world, with announced plans for 12 more Availability Zones and four more Regions in Bahrain, Hong Kong SAR, Sweden, and a second AWS GovCloud Region in the US.

The AWS EU (London) Region has achieved Public Services Network (PSN) assurance, which provides UK Public Sector customers with an assured infrastructure on which to build UK Public Sector services. In conjunction with AWS’s Standardized Architecture for UK-OFFICIAL, PSN assurance enables UK Public Sector organizations to move their UK-OFFICIAL classified data to the EU (London) Region in a controlled and risk-managed manner.

The new AZ in London will allow us to provide UK clients with additional flexibility to architect highly scalable, fault-tolerant applications that run across multiple AZs in the UK.
