Tens of thousands of customers in India are currently using Amazon Web Services (AWS) from one of AWS’s eleven global infrastructure regions outside of India. AWS has now announced that it will open an AWS infrastructure region in India for its cloud hosting platform in 2016.
“Several of these customers, along with many prospective new 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,” said Andy Jassy, Senior Vice President, AWS. “We’re excited to share that Indian customers will be able to use the world’s leading cloud computing platform (AWS) in India in 2016 – and we believe India will be one of AWS’s largest regions over the long term.”
