Amazon QuickSight is now available two new regions - Canada (Central) and South America (Sao Paulo). New users can sign up for QuickSight with either of these regions as their home region, making SPICE capacity available in these regions and ensuring proximity to AWS and on-premise data sources. Existing QuickSight users can switch to Canada (Central) or South America (Sao Paulo) via the region switcher in the User Interface to provision SPICE capacity, and to enable faster and cheaper connectivity to data sources in this region. With this launch, QuickSight is now available in 14 regions globally, US East (N. Virginia and Ohio), US West (Oregon), EU (Frankfurt, Ireland and London), and Asia Pacific (Mumbai, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo), GovCloud (US-West), Canada (Central) or South America (Sao Paulo).
