Amazon EC2 Now Available In Europe

We learned something today: Amazon EC2 wasn’t available in Europe up until today. That’s news to us, because we thought it already was. Amazon Web Services just released a statement announcing that European developers and businesses can now run their Amazon EC2 instances locally.

With today’s launch, European developers and businesses with European customers can take advantage of the latest features for Amazon EC2 including multiple Availability Zones, Elastic IP addresses, and Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS). In the near future, Amazon EC2 will also add support for Windows Server and SQL Server in the EU which is a new feature that was recently introduced on Amazon EC2 in the U.S.

Amazon S3 had already been available for about a year in the EU, but it’s good to see the popular cloud computing service making its way across the Atlantic now, too.
