Amazon Web Services launched EU (Frankfurt) Region in Germany

Lets make the web a faster place!

Amazon Web Services launched a new Region in Frankfurt am Main / Germany. We offer you a discount on Load and Performance Testing your application in the EU (Frankfurt) Region.

The new Region1 supports most of the services as @jeffbar announced on the Amazon Web Services Blog.


To be honest, I personally don’t know Frankfurt that much. Like probably for most Germans Frankfurt is about:

  • the Frankfurt Stock Exchange2
  • the Frankfurt Airport3
  • and food like Frankfurter Würstchen4 or Grüne Soße5

And of course, Frankfurt has DE-CIX6, the largest internet exchange point worldwide in peak terms.

Finally, Frankfurt now has an Amazon Web Service Region. Nice!
Welcome your data in Germany!
