Amazon Web Services has opened a new cloud region in Zurich, Switzerland.
“I am pleased to announce today the opening of our 28th AWS Region: Europe (Zurich), also known by its API name: eu-central-2,” said Sébastien Stormacq, principal developer advocate for AWS.
The region has gone live with three availability zones located ‘in the vicinity’ of Zurich.
The company first announced plans for a Swiss cloud region in late 2020 and said it plans to invest up to 5.9 billion Swiss francs (approximately $5.9 billion) in the Europe (Zurich) Region from 2022–2036
Existing Swiss AWS customers include Fisch Asset Management, Helvetia, Richemont, Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (RSI), Swiss Post, Swisscom, and Swisstopo.
