You can now create machine learning models and obtain predictions with Amazon Machine Learning (Amazon ML) in the AWS EU (Ireland) region. Using Amazon ML in the EU (Ireland) region and accessing your data from Amazon S3 buckets also located in this region, you will not incur data transfer costs. Additionally, when using Amazon ML in the EU(Ireland) region, you can use data stored in Amazon Redshift clusters and Amazon RDS instances that are also hosted in this region. Using Amazon ML in the region that is nearest to your predictive applications may result in lower real-time prediction latencies. Further, availability of Amazon ML in this region may address limitations your organization may have related to data governance restrictions and other data control mandates with dependencies on geographic location.

Amazon Machine Learning makes it easy for developers of all skill levels to use machine learning technology, providing visualization tools and wizards that guide you through the process of creating machine learning models without having to learn complex algorithms and technology. Amazon Machine Learning is highly scalable and can generate billions of predictions daily, and serve those predictions in real-time and at high throughput.

With this release, Amazon Machine Learning is now available in the US East (N. Virginia) and EU (Ireland) AWS regions. Visit the Amazon Machine Learning pages to learn more and start creating your models, today.
