With the steady rise of AWS adoption in the UK, it should come as no surprise that AWS will be adding a new UK region by the end of 2016. Last week, Amazon CTO Werner Vogels announced the new AWS UK region amongst five other regions set to open in 2016: India, Ohio, South Korea, the UK and a second region in China. The new regions are a welcome addition for UK businesses that are interested in migrating to the cloud, but are struggling with data sovereignty issues, increased regulatory restrictions, and a greater prominence of security threats. Businesses must balance the regulatory risk of cloud migration against escalating costs associated with local providers and/or hosting in-house.
