Amazon Web Services has launched VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) in Europe, the company has announced.
The service is a secure and seamless bridge between a company’s existing IT infrastructure and the AWS cloud. Amazon VPC enables enterprises to connect their existing infrastructure to a set of isolated AWS compute resources via a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection, and to extend their existing management capabilities such as security services, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems to include their AWS resources.
“Since the launch of Amazon VPC in the U.S. last fall, European customers have been requesting this same capability in Europe,” said Adam Selipsky, Vice President of Amazon Web Services. We’re excited to announce Amazon VPC’s arrival in Europe as it gives enterprises the attractive combination of being able to further isolate their AWS resources, use all the same security and management tools they normally use, yet still take advantage of the most powerful benefits of the cloud.”
