# AWS London Region Open 2016/12/15

AWS has just opened a new region in London making the total number of regions 16, of which three are in Europe. When will we see the first one in northern Europe? Finland, maybe? :)

Google is already here enjoying the cold weather and Yandex heats up a small Finnish town with their datacenter. Where's AWS?

# CloudFront Supports gzip 2015/12/20

Amazon CloudFront can now compress your objects at the edge. You can now configure CloudFront to automatically apply GZIP compression when browsers and other clients request a compressed object with text and other compressible file formats.

This is great news, it's about time. Hopefully HTTP/2 comes next, right Amazon?
