2016 was a busy year for AWS, launching 3 new regions in the last quarter of the year. These regions are located in Central Canada (ca-central-1), Ohio (us-east-2), and London (eu-west-2). In order to provide our customers with the options that fit their needs the best, Engine Yard is happy to announce the immediate availability of these regions.
These regions are available when booting up an environment for the first time. Just select the appropriate option from Region dropdown menu when creating the environment. Engine Yard clients who have their own AWS accounts will also be able to provision resources in these regions in the exact same fashion. If you have any questions, please contact our customer success team.
