Amazon VPC Generally Available in Multiple AZs in All Regions
We are excited to announce the global rollout of Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). Amazon VPC is now out of beta and is generally available in multiple Availability Zones in all AWS Regions (US East, US West, Europe, Singapore, and Tokyo.) Using Amazon VPC, you can provision a private section of the AWS cloud where you can a create virtual network that you control, including selection of IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration or route tables and network gateways. You can connect your Amazon VPC directly to the Internet while also extending your corporate data center to the cloud using encrypted VPN connections.
Starting today you can:
- Provision multiple VPCs to support different use cases, for example, a production network, a staging network, and a development and test network
- Launch Amazon EC2 instances into subnets in different Availability Zones to protect applications from failure of a single location
- Connect branch office locations to each other and to your Amazon VPC via encrypted VPN tunnels
- View the status of your Amazon VPC VPN connections on the AWS Management Console
In addition, this rollout also includes support for Windows Server 2008 R2 and for Windows SQL Server Reserved Instances in Amazon VPC. To get started using Amazon VPC, visit the Amazon VPC web page
