New AWS region: eu-west-2

Two years ago I've leaked the eu-central-1 in Frankfurt. Today I found the first hints for a new region called eu-west-2.

There are already API endpoints with a valid DNS record and a correct TLS subject in the certificate reachable:

$ timeout 1 openssl s_client -connect ec2.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com:443 2>&1 |grep subject
subject=/C=US/ST=Washington/L=Seattle/O=Amazon.com, Inc./CN=ec2.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com  

This region is located is somewhere located in the UK. Based on latency it's in the metro region London.

regions

From a host located in London we have a latency to this region between 1-3ms.
