AWS beefs up DC capacity at their London availability zone

The data center upgrade aims to allow customers more flexibility to build fault-tolerant applications.

Cloud giants AWS have announced that they will be boosting resources at their London availability zone in a bid to provide more flexibility to customers architecting fault-tolerant applications. With this upgrade, AWS will add one more data center to their availability zone.

AWS availability zones are regions that are made of more than two to three cloud computing data centers, spread across geographies. By spreading these data centers across geographies, business continuity does not get affected in cases of rapid failovers. By upgrading its data center, AWS aims to provide its customers with the freedom to continue building more applications through AWS cloud.

AWS claims that its client roster in London includes big names like BBC, British Telecom, Delloite and Travis Perkins who have migrated to their cloud and data center services. They added that these clients will be able to build more applications without having to worry about server crashes.

AWS say that their current count of availability zones stands at 50 across 18 geographies. In closing, they said that they plan to build 12 more zones along with data center expansion in Bahrain, Hong Kong, Sweden and the United States.
