AWS announce London region

Our Christmas present has arrived! Amazon Web Services have announced general availability of EU London Region.

This has most of the AWS services available but at a slightly higher price than Ireland but cheaper than Frankfurt.

There are other differences, like there are only 2 availability Zones for London currently in use. I expect that to increase to 3 soon along with the demand and growth.

A few services are not available in London region compared to Ireland, so you may need to wait before deploying apps that require one of these:- EFS (Elastic File System), Lambda,  ElasticSearch or SES (Simple Email Service).

ECS (Elastic Container Service) is available, so we can continue to grow our Docker workloads.
