We are happy to announce the Frankfurt AWS region is now available for all Engine Yard customers. This region currently supports all C3, M3, R3, and T2 instances.
You can now tailor your application delivery to your European clients by complementing the Ireland facility with Frankfurt. On top of all of the latency benefits you gain by having a data center closer to your customers, you can also keep all of your data within Germany and comply with the EU Data Protection Directive, also known as Directive 95/46/EC. AWS provides a detailed explanation of how compliance works in this region.
As always, Engine Yard is committed to conducting business in a manner that complies with the US–EU Safe Harbor Framework and the US–Swiss Safe Harbor Framework. More details can be found in our EU Safe Harbor Policy.
If you are interested in utilizing this setup or want additional information, please contact our Customer Success team.
