AWS launches in Sydney, Australia

In June 2011, I suggested that:

…if Amazon is to have a presence in Australia, the first step would be adding an Australian-based CloudFront edge location. This would help them evaluate costs, and if things work out then Amazon could introduce their other services such as EC2 and S3.

As of today, Amazon Web Services have announced a CloudFront / Route 53 Edge Location in Sydney, Australia.

Fantastic news for Australian-based AWS users!

Now, the next question: How long will it be before AWS add an AWS Region for EC2 in Australia?

My guess is by the end of 2012.
