Amazon Web Services opens new West Coast hub in Oregon

Companies utilizing Amazon Web Services now have a new option. The Seattle company today opened a new U.S. West regional hub in Oregon, one that the company said will offer lower-cost pricing.

“Since the launch of AWS over five years ago, we’ve lowered our prices over a dozen times,” said Andy Jassy, Senior Vice President of AWS. “Launching this new lower-priced US West Region today is another example of our commitment to driving down costs for our customers….”

The company said that pricing at the new Oregon operation is 10 percent lower than the existing U.S. West facility in Northern California and equal to the U.S. East operation in Northern Virginia.

The Oregon facility marks the company’s seventh AWS infrastructure region. Others include US East (N. Virginia), EU West (Dublin), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Singapore), GovCloud (US) and US West (N. California) Region.
