Amazon Web Services (AWS) has added another region for its cloud computing services. With the US East (Ohio) Region, AWS now has 14 separate regions.
The Ohio region will offer all the core AWS cloud computing services, and because it is so close to the Virginia region, customers will be able to move data between the two free of charge.
“We strive to place customer feedback first in our considerations for where to open new regions,” said Amazon CTO Werner Vogels. “The Ohio Region is no different. Now customers who have been requesting a second US East region have more infrastructure options for running workloads, storing files, running analytics, and managing databases.”
