Amazon Goes South: New Region in Sao Paulo

We’re still waiting on a South Pole region for AWS, but it might be a while before Amazon sets up shop in Antarctica. However, the company announced today that they’ve got South America covered. Amazon has opened its South America (Sao Paulo) region in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

This will be useful for organizations in South and Central America that want to use AWS services with low latency. Amazon is also working to reach customers in the new region with blogs in Spanish and Portuguese.

Amazon is kicking off the new region with a hefty list of services. EC2 and its related offerings like Elastic Block Store (EBS), Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), Elastic Load Balancing, Auto Scaling, and VM import. Naturally they’ve also got S3 from day one, plus CloudFormation, CloudWatch, SimpleDB, Simple Queue Service, and Elastic MapReduce.

This follows a launch of the edge location in Sao Paulo for CloudFront and Route 53 in September.
