Amazon plans to launch the AWS European Sovereign Cloud, a new, independent cloud for Europe. The new service will use data centers within the EU that are separate and independent from the company’s existing Regions.
Amazon says the AWS European Sovereign Cloud will be sovereign-by-design, and will be built on more than a decade of experience operating multiple independent clouds for the most critical and restricted workloads. It will also be built with separate, in-Region billing and usage metering systems.
The new AWS European Sovereign Cloud promises the same security, availability, and performance as existing Regions. To deliver enhanced operational resilience within the EU, only EU residents who are located in the EU will have control of the operations and support for the AWS European Sovereign Cloud
The AWS European Sovereign Cloud will launch its first AWS Region in Germany available to all European customers.
