AWS has just opened the AWS Sweden Region. It is based in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden and has the name ‘eu-north-1’.
AWS now provides five regions in europe. Each region provides three availability zones which means you now have fifteen availability zones to create highly resilient applications in Europe.
| Region name | API name | Number of AZs |
| — | — | — |
| Stockholm | eu-north-1 | 3 |
| Frankfurt | eu-central-1 | 3 |
| Ireland | eu-west-1 | 3 |
| London | eu-west-2 | 3 |
| Paris | eu-west-3 | 3 |
Deploying a bucket in Stockholm
To deploy a bucket in Stockholm, just change the region to ‘eu-north-1’ and execute the CloudFormation template like in the example project that we have prepared.
It is very exciting to have a fifth AWS region that provides services to create highly scalable, highly resilient solutions for our clients.
