The AWS Europe (Paris) Region

Store your data in France and serve your end-users in and around France with low-latency connectivity

AWS is committed to customers and partners in France. In December 2017 we launched the AWS Europe (Paris) Region, which has allowed customers to store their data in-country and to benefit from low-latency connectivity. Customers can also leverage both core and advanced AWS services locally to drive innovation.

Enjoy the benefits of AWS Europe (Paris) Region

  • Reduce latency
  • The AWS Europe (Paris) Region allows customers to serve end-users in and around France for low-latency connectivity. In addition to the region, we have six edge locations in France (five in Paris and one in Marseille), available to customers wishing to offer internet sites, applications, and content to customers.

  • Keep your data in France
  • Since December 2017, the AWS Europe (Paris) Region allows customers with data localization requirements to store their data in France, with the assurance that the content will not be moved unless action is taken by them. Customers can build in this region, knowing they always own their data, including the ability to encrypt it, move it, and manage retention.

  • Be Secure and Compliant
  • Security at AWS starts with our core infrastructure. Our regions around the world are designed, built, and regularly audited to meet the most rigorous compliance standards and to provide high levels of security for all AWS customers. The AWS Europe (Paris) Region complies with ISO 27001, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, SOC 1 (Formerly SAS 70), SOC 2 and SOC 3 Security & Availability, PCI DSS Level 1, Hébergeur de Données de Sante (HDS) certification, and many more.

  • Reduce risks
  • The AWS Europe (Paris) Region offers three Availability Zones (AZs), which refer to technology infrastructures located in distinct geographical locations. These AZs are far enough apart to significantly reduce the risk that a single event will affect availability, but close enough to ensure the continuity of applications that require a quick recovery in the event of an event.

  • Establish Private Connectivity
  • To give you the best possible experience you can use AWS Direct Connect to hook up to the AWS Europe (Paris) Region via Telehouse Voltaire, Equinix Paris or Interxion Paris. By using AWS Direct Connect via Telehouse Voltaire, Equinix Paris, and Interxion Paris, you can establish private connectivity between AWS Europe (Paris) Region and your data center, office, or colocation environment, which in many cases allows you to reduce your network costs, increase your throughput on bandwidth and provide a more seamless network experience than Internet-based connections.

Sustainable setup in France

“For more than a decade AWS has been supporting builders, inventors and entrepreneurs in their quest to reinvent and develop the experience they offer their customers.

We have tens of thousands of French customers who use AWS. We have listened carefully to them and are delighted to make an AWS Region available to them to enable them to benefit easily from low latency for their applications that need it and to keep data that should be here on French soil.”
