Announcing the new US West (Oregon) Region

Posted on: Nov 8, 2011

AWS is excited to announce the immediate availability of the US West (Oregon) Region, AWS’s newest infrastructure location in the United States.

Starting today, customers can access the Oregon Region, a new, lower priced Region for the US West. Oregon joins Northern California as AWS’s second US West location and provides businesses a new, low-cost, low latency option for serving customers and applications benefiting from infrastructure located in the Western United States. Businesses can now choose to locate their AWS resources in the Oregon Region, which like other AWS Regions contains multiple redundant Availability Zones for architecting highly available applications.

The new US West (Oregon) Region is priced approximately 10 percent lower than the existing US West (N. California) Region and equal to the US East (N. Virginia) Region. The new Region provides a broad suite of AWS services, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), Amazon SimpleDB, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS), Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon Elastic MapReduce, Auto Scaling, AWS CloudFormation, and Amazon CloudWatch.

AWS now operates seven Regions worldwide serving customers in over 190 countries. US West (Oregon) is the seventh AWS infrastructure Region, joining US East (N. Virginia), EU West (Dublin), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Singapore), GovCloud (US), and the existing US West (N. California) Region.
