AWS opens swiss region eu-central-2
Yesterday was an exiting day for the swiss IT industry with the opening of the new swiss AWS region eu-central-2; AWS being the last of the three largest cloud providers to open a region in Switzerland. What will change for Swiss customers? Even though AWS has had a presence in Switzerland for quite a while now, Swiss customers had to use a non-local regions. This has now changed, and we believe that the Swiss AWS region will grow quickly; as many Swiss companies will move their workloads into the AWS cloud, many from other, local cloud providers, since the option now exists to keep data within Switzerland itself.
