AWS Local Zones are now available in four new metro areas—Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Helsinki, and Muscat. You can now use these Local Zones to deliver applications that require single-digit millisecond latency or local data processing. 

This launch includes the first Local Zones launch in Latin America (Buenos Aires, Argentina), and also expands Local Zones in EMEA to three new countries (Denmark, Finland and Oman). At the beginning of this year, AWS announced plans to launch AWS Local Zones in over 30 metro areas across 27 countries outside of 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 four metro areas (Delhi, Hamburg, Taipei, and Warsaw) 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 and visit our guide on the Getting Started Resource Center.
