AWS is excited to announce the immediate availability of the new EU (Frankfurt) infrastructure region. The Frankfurt region joins Ireland as AWS’ second European location, and provides customers with a new option for end users and applications benefiting from infrastructure located in continental Europe.

In the new Frankfurt region, as with all AWS regions, customers choose where their data is processed and stored. Additionally, customers can now further improve the fault tolerance of their applications using two infrastructure regions located exclusively in Europe.

AWS is now operating eleven regions worldwide, which serve customers from over 190 countries. Learn more about our growing global infrastructure footprint at our global infrastructure page.
