Breaking News: AWS Bedrock Lands in Sydney

Published Apr 9, 2024
I’m in Sydney this week for the AWS Summit Sydney and I’ve just been left with much excitement after a MASSIVE announcement.
This must be one of the year's most anticipated announcements (in our region).  I’ve had customers ask me every other week when this is happening.  I can now say… TODAY rather than SOON
I can practically hear you all leaning forward, eager to know what it is. Well, hold onto your seats because here it is: AWS Bedrock has officially landed in Sydney (ap-southeast-02)!
That’s right!  AWS Bedrock is now available in Sydney (ap-southeast-02)
