Amazon Web Services has launched Amazon VPC in Europe. AWS customers can now connect their existing infrastructure to a set of isolated AWS compute resources in the EU via a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection, and use their existing management capabilities such as security services, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems to include their AWS resources. Customers based in Europe will benefit from reduced network latency between Amazon VPC and their existing IT infrastructure, allowing enterprise IT departments to provide the best possible user experience to their end users. Amazon VPC in the EU will also help European customers meet EU requirements for where their data is stored.
