AWS Local Zones are now available in Hamburg and Warsaw—the first AWS Local Zones launch in Europe. You can now use AWS Local Zones in these metro areas to deliver applications that require single-digit millisecond latency or local data processing.

At the beginning of this year, AWS announced plans to launch AWS Local Zones in an additional 33 metro areas across 27 countries outside the US. AWS Local Zones are also generally available in 16 metro areas in the US (Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, and Seattle) and two metro areas (Delhi and Taipei) outside of the US.

You can enable AWS Local Zones from the Zones tab in Settings of the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) console, or ModifyAvailabilityZoneGroup API. To learn more, see AWS Local Zones.
