Amazon has launched its Relational Database Service (RDS) in Europe, claiming that businesses and Amazon Web Services (AWS) developers can now make sure that their data stays in Europe.
The European RDS will offer "resizable database capacity in the cloud while automating time-consuming database administration tasks", according to Amazon.
The RDS servers are located in the European Union and provide lower latency and higher performance, Amazon said, adding that it made more sense to operate its business closer to other European AWS resources like Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3.
RDS is a easy-to-use web service for hosting scalable relational databases in the cloud, and provides full MySQL database capabilities.
This means that all operational procedures in existing MySQL databases work with Amazon RDS, and users can scale resources or storage capacity via a single application programming interface call.
"RDS is one of the fastest growing AWS services, attracting leading firms from industries such as technology, media, communications and the public sector, " said Adam Selipsky, vice president of AWS.
"We have been working hard to extend the same high-quality low-cost service to customers who have told us they want to deploy in Europe."
