Amazon Web Services to open infra region in India

New Delhi, June 30 (IANS) Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company on Tuesday said it will open an AWS infrastructure region in India for its cloud computing platform in 2016.

“Thousands of customers in India are using AWS from one of AWS’s eleven global infrastructure regions outside India. Several customers have asked us to locate infrastructure in India so they can enjoy even lower latency to their end users in India and satisfy any data sovereignty requirements they may have,” Andy Jassy, senior vice president, AWS said.

“Indian customers will be able to use AWS infrastructure in India in 2016 — and India will be one of AWS’s largest regions over the long term.”

Launched in 2006, Amazon Web Services offers a fully featured technology infrastructure platform in the cloud comprised of a broad set of compute, storage, database, analytics, application and deployment services from data center locations in the US, Australia, Brazil, China, Germany, Ireland, Japan and Singapore.

The company said customers in India are already using AWS to drive cost savings, accelerate innovation, speed time-to-market, and expand geographic reach in minutes.
