The Hyderabad-based second AWS Region from Amazon is now live in India. The new data centre will sustain 48,000 external full-time employment annually, according to the e-commerce business, thanks to an investment of $4.4 billion by 2030. Customers will now have access to the AWS Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) Region, which will enable them to execute workloads with greater reliability and reduced latency.
Prasad Kalyanaraman, vice president of infrastructure services at AWS, commented on the news:
“Since opening our first office there in 2011, the launching of the AWS Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) Region supports India’s digital revolution and is a part of our long-term investment in the nation. Now that there is more regional infrastructure available, customers and partners in India will be able to deploy applications with higher resilience, availability, and even reduced latency. We are dedicated to assisting businesses across all sectors to become more agile and to promote innovation. We are proud to invest in the workforce and future of the Indian technology community.
AWS is now accessible across 96 Availability Zones and 30 geographical areas as a result of the addition of this region. AWS Region located in Zurich was one of its most recent acquisitions, and it will support 2,500 full-time jobs at foreign companies operating there. The investment in Switzerland is higher than the one in Hyderabad ($5.9 billion), but it will be made over a considerably longer period of time—up until 2036.
Given all the news we’re hearing about tech company layoffs, Amazon’s investments in its AWS data centres may help stimulate economies worldwide.
