SingaporeEC2AvailabilityOur friends in Asia and the Southwest Pacific area will be happy to learn that it’s now possible to deploy EC2-based JumpBoxes closer to home. All JumpBox Pro & Business customers starting today will see the option to deploy into the recently announced AWS datacenter in Singapore.

If you’re located in this area and are already running a JumpBox in the US or Europe regions you can take advantage of our migration mechanism to move your instance to the Singapore datacenter. You’ll need to first bring up a new JumpBox on EC2 in Singapore and then follow the instructions available here on our wiki.

Running your instances closer to home should enhance usability with faster response times and more reliable network connectivity. If you’re not currently a Pro customer but would like to test the responsiveness of Singapore-based instances sign up for a free trial now.
