Now In Europe: Amazon SimpleDB, CloudWatch, Auto Scaling, and Elastic Load Balancing

I’m happy to announce that the following AWS services are now available in Europe:

  • Amazon SimpleDB – Highly available and scalable, low/no administration structured data storage.
  • Amazon CloudWatch – Monitoring for the AWS cloud, starting with providing resource consumption (CPU utilization, network traffic, and disk I/O) for EC2 instances.
  • Elastic Load Balancing – Traffic distribution across multiple EC2 instances.
  • Auto Scaling – Automated scaling of EC2 instances based on rules that you define.

All of the services work just the same way in Europe as they do in the US. Existing applications and management tools should be able to access the services in this region after a simple change of the service endpoint. As is the case with S3 and EC2, these services are independent of their US counterparts.

Our full slate of infrastructure services is now available in Europe. With the European debut of these services, developers can now built reliable and scalable applications in both of the AWS regions (US and Europe).
