Amazon Web Services has announced Hyderabad as its second infrastructure region in India, after Mumbai. The AWS Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) Region will have three availability zones and provide clients with local infrastructure to satisfy regulatory and data residency requirements.
With an anticipated investment of INR 36,300 crore ($4.4 billion) in India by 2030, the new facility will begin operations with approximately 48,000 full-time employment possibilities annually.
AWS Hyderabad will give clients additional options and flexibility for secure data storage, more resilient workload execution, and faster service for end users when combined with the AWS Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Region.
As a result, businesses and startups, as well as institutions of higher learning and non-profits, will have more options for using Indian data centers to host apps and provide customer service.
Customers have the option to weigh these requirements against their own while also gaining access to cutting-edge AWS technologies that will accelerate innovation in fields like data analytics, security, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
According to Rahul Sharma, president – public sector – at AWS India and South Asia, in addition to supporting the government’s Digital India vision in the areas of e-governance, healthcare, agriculture, education, space technology, utilities, and smart infrastructure, the second AWS region in India will strengthen India’s cloud innovation capability. It will also make it possible to develop cutting-edge technologies like high-performance computing and quantum computing.
CurrentWS is being used by government projects including Co-WIN, eSanjeevaniOPD, and DigiLocker to deliver innovation and impact at scale.
