New data center in Mumbai will facilitate the customers from the Asia Pacific region to leverage the local data center for the AWS services.
GreatResponder.com Amazon web services Company (AWS), a major cloud computing service provider in the world, has announced the start of the sixth state of the art data center for the Asia Pacific Region or APAC. This is a state of the art data center to cater a large customer base spread in different countries in the region, especially in India and its surrounding countries. This new data center for Asia Pacific is located at Mumbai.
With this launch of new data center, the number of Availability Zones (AZ) of AWS will increase to thirty five (35). All these 35 availability zones are demarked within the 13 technological infrastructure zones across the globe. This data center will be more useful for the increasing demands of Indian customers, where a new boom in the startup is expected in the near future due to the government’s aggressive push for the startup companies.
Amazon web service is already having a huge share of over 75 thousand customers from India only. This huge customer base will be able to use the local data center to develop and run their cloud based applications and services in the changed environment of the global IT ecosystem.
It was further informed in the official announcement that this new data center has been started to provide valuable cloud services for governmental, nonprofit, profit and startup organizations in the region.
This newly established data center will consist of two availability zones. They have independent power supplies, locations, cooling systems and other amenities needed for a state of the art data center to cater the increasing demand in the region.
In the official statement, CEO of Amazon web services, Andy Jassy said, “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. 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.”
With this new launch, the competition in the cloud computing marketplace will become more fierce.
