In April, it emerged that AWS planned to open a new infrastructure region for its cloud computing services in the Stockholm region in 2018.
Sweden’s enterprise and innovation minister Mikael Damberg hailed the deal as “huge” for Sweden.
“They could do that wherever in the world, but chose to do it here,” he added.
Now the man responsible for expanding AWS’s cloud services operations in Sweden, American Darren Mowry, has disclosed the reasoning behind his company’s decision to invest in Sweden.
“Sweden truly does have it all,” Mowry writes in a blog post published on the Data Centers by Sweden website.
