Amazon Web Services Now Available to Indian Customers with New Asia Pacific Region Launch

MUMBAI, INDIA: Amazon Web Services (AWS) announces the immediate availability of the new Asia Pacific Region in Mumbai, to provide its cloud solutions and services to Indian customers.

Now, global and India -based developers, start-ups, enterprises, government organizations, and non-profits can leverage AWS cloud to run their technology applications from infrastructure in India , and provide even lower latency to India -based end users.

With over 75,000 customers India -based customers already using other AWS Regions to save costs, accelerate innovation, speed time-to-market, and expand their geographic reach, this new footprint in Mumbai can help them move their applications with low latency and data sovereignty.

The new AWS Mumbai Region consists of two separate Availability Zones at launch. Availability Zones refer to datacenters in separate, distinct locations within a single region that are engineered to be operationally independent of other Availability Zones. These Availability Zones function with independent power, cooling, and physical security, and are connected via a low latency network. AWS customers focused on high availability can architect their applications to run in multiple Availability Zones to achieve even higher fault-tolerance.

The AWS Partner Network (APN) consists of thousands of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and Systems Integrators (SIs) who build innovative services for the AWS Cloud. The APN program helps partners build successful AWS-based businesses by providing business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market (GTM) support.

AWS offers Indian professionals with a full range of training and certification programs to help those interested in latest cloud computing technologies with best practices, and architectures to advance their technical skills. The AWS Educate Program helps to provide an academic gateway for the next generation of IT and cloud professionals.

AWS also opened a new AWS point of presence (PoP) in Delhi for its Content Delivery Network -Amazon CloudFront- and DNS service -Amazon Route 53 -which is the third AWS PoP in India apart from Mumbai and Chennai and part of the global AWS network of 56 edge locations across the United States , Europe , Asia , Australia , and South America .

"Indian start-ups and enterprises have been using AWS for many years – with most Indian technology start-ups building their entire businesses on AWS, and numerous enterprises running mission-critical, core applications on AWS," says Andy Jassy, CEO of AWS. "These same 75,000 Indian customers, along with others anxious to start using AWS, have asked for an AWS India Region so they can move their applications that require low latency and data sovereignty. We're excited to make this available today, with the same pay-as-you-go pricing, ability to get started immediately without having to negotiate enterprise agreements or wait days for access, and unmatched functionality that customers enjoy in AWS Regions worldwide – all of which allows customers to go from idea to launch faster than ever before was possible."
