AWS Unveils AWS European Sovereign Cloud – a Dedicated Cloud Solution for Europe
Amazon Web Services Launches AWS European Sovereign Cloud to Meet Data Residency and Regulatory Requirements for Public Sector Customers
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has introduced a dedicated cloud offering for Europe, referred to as AWS European Sovereign Cloud. This launch is aimed at meeting the data residency and operational regulatory needs of its public sector clientele.
The European variant of AWS cloud will maintain a physical and logical separation from existing AWS Regions while delivering the familiar advantages of AWS services. Amazon has specified that only its employees residing in the EU will have control over the operations and support for AWS European Sovereign Cloud. This setup ensures that customers can manage metadata, such as roles, permissions, resource labels, and configurations, without the risk of it being accessible in other regions.
