Amazon Web Services Launches New Region in France

December 20, 2017 by · Comments Off on Amazon Web Services Launches New Region in France 

SEATTLE – Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ:AMZN), announced the launch of the AWS EU (Paris) Region. With this launch, AWS now provides 49 Availability Zones across 18 technology infrastructure regions globally with another 12 Availability Zones and four regions in Bahrain, Hong Kong SAR, Sweden, and a second AWS GovCloud Region in the US expected to come online by early 2019. The AWS EU (Paris) Region is AWS’s fourth in Europe, joining existing regions in Germany, Ireland, and the UK. Tens of thousands of French customers already use AWS in other regions, and starting today, developers, startups, and enterprises, as well as government, education, and non-profit organizations, can leverage AWS to run applications and store data in France by going to: https://aws.amazon.com/fr/paris/

The AWS EU (Paris) Region offers three Availability Zones. AWS Regions are comprised of Availability Zones, which refer to technology infrastructure in separate and distinct geographic locations with enough distance to significantly reduce the risk of a single event impacting availability, yet near enough for business continuity applications that require rapid failover. Each Availability Zone has independent power, cooling, physical security, and is connected via redundant, ultra-low-latency networks. AWS customers focused on high availability can design their applications to run in multiple Availability Zones to achieve even greater fault tolerance. Additionally, the new AWS EU (Paris) Region gives customers with data sovereignty requirements the ability to store their data in France with the assurance that their content will not move unless they move it. The new Region adds to the existing infrastructure AWS already has in France, which includes three Edge Network Locations in Paris and one in Marseille, for customers looking to deliver websites, applications, and content to end users with low latency. These are part of AWS’s existing network of 107 Points of Presence (96 Edge Locations and 11 Regional Edge Caches) globally.

The Cloud Competition Intensifies – Rapid Growth Ahead for Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform

December 18, 2017 by · Comments Off on The Cloud Competition Intensifies – Rapid Growth Ahead for Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform 

SANTA BARBARA, CA – A new LogicMonitor® survey of nearly 300 industry influencers predicts that enterprises will migrate the majority of their IT workloads from the data center to the cloud by 2020. Fueling this transition will be the 20.8 billion IoT devices Gartner predicts will come online, and the rapid maturation of AI and machine learning technologies. The Future of the Cloud Study also finds that while Amazon holds a dominant leadership position in the public cloud market, Microsoft and Google are closing that gap.

LogicMonitor, the leading SaaS-based performance monitoring platform for Enterprise IT, sponsored the survey, polling both AWS re:Invent attendees and industry analysts, media, consultants and vendor strategists to explore what the landscape for cloud services will look like in 2020. “Our customers continue to ask for guidance in planning their cloud migration strategies,” said Jeff Behl, Chief Product Officer for LogicMonitor. “We designed our survey to gather feedback from some key industry influencers to understand their predictions, and to provide our customers with insights and answers.”
