Amazon Web Services Announces New Lower Priced US West Region

(NASDAQ: AMZN) — Amazon Web Services LLC (AWS), an Amazon.com company, today announced the launch of a new lower priced US West Region – US West (Oregon). Starting today, businesses can choose to locate their AWS resources in the Oregon Region, which like other AWS Regions, contains multiple redundant Availability Zones for architecting highly available applications. Oregon joins Northern California as AWS’s second US West location and provides businesses a new, low-cost, low latency option for serving customers and applications benefiting from infrastructure located in the Western United States. To sign up and get started using the new US West (Oregon) Region, visit http://aws.amazon.com.

We continue to be relentlessly focused on lowering costs so we can pass these savings to our customers in the form of lower prices. Since the launch of AWS over five years ago, we’ve lowered our prices over a dozen times,” said Andy Jassy, Senior Vice President, AWS. “Launching this new lower-priced US West Region today is another example of our commitment to driving down costs for our customers – now, developers and businesses with operations or end users near the west coast of the United States can use our US West Infrastructure at an even lower cost than they could before.

US West (Oregon) is the seventh AWS infrastructure Region, joining US East (N. Virginia), EU West (Dublin), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Singapore), GovCloud (US), and the existing US West (N. California) Region.

The new US West (Oregon) Region is priced approximately 10 percent lower than the existing US West (N. California) Region and equal to the US East (N. Virginia) Region. The new Region provides a broad suite of AWS services, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), Amazon SimpleDB, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS), Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon Elastic MapReduce, Auto Scaling, AWS CloudFormation, and Amazon CloudWatch.
