Last week the Turbot team had the pleasure of spending an evening geeking out with Canadian customers, partners and the AWS account team during the first night of re:Invent. Part of what made the evening special was the great energy stemming from the impending launch of the new AWS Canada Region.

Well the wait is finally over and Amazon has now launched their 15th Global Region (first in Canada) in Montreal. The region contains two new availability zones, bringing the total number of AWS Global AZs to 40!

99% Sustainable

The other positive news coming from the launch is that the data centers in the new region draw 99% of their electrical power needs from hydroelectric sources! Meaning that customers now have a migration option for legacy workloads that offers deployment on a higher performance cloud ecosystem while reducing their environmental impact.
