Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amazon.com's cloud computing arm, has launched its second infrastructure region in India, the AWS Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) region, joining its existing Mumbai region, which opened in June 2016.

AWS intends to invest approximately $4.4 billion (approximately Rs 36,300 crore) in India by 2030 through this new Hyderabad region. The investment is also expected to generate an average of more than 48,000 full-time jobs in India, including construction, facility maintenance, engineering, telecommunications, and jobs in the country's broader economy.

Estimated India’s gross domestic product by 2030

The construction and operation of the AWS Asia Pacific Hyderabad region is also estimated to add approximately $7.6 billion (approx. Rs 63,600 crore) to India’s gross domestic product by 2030, according to AWS.

“Starting today, developers, startups, entrepreneurs, and enterprises, as well as government, education, and nonprofit organizations, will have greater choice for running their applications and serving end users from data centers located in India. Customers will have access to advanced AWS technologies to drive innovation including data 
analytics, security, machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI),” AWS said in a statement.

“The launch of the AWS Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) region supports India’s digital transformation and is part of our long-term investment in the country since opening our first office in 2011. Customers and partners in India will now have additional regional infrastructure to deploy applications with greater resilience, availability, and even lower latency,” said Prasad Kalyanaraman, vice president of Infrastructure Services at Amazon Data Services.

Availability Zones

AWS now has 96 Availability Zones across 30 geographic regions, with plans to launch 15 more Availability Zones and five more AWS regions in Australia, Canada, Israel, New Zealand, and Thailand. AWS regions are made up of Availability Zones, which place infrastructure in distinct geographic locations.

The AWS Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) region is made up of three Availability Zones that are far enough apart to support customers' business continuity while also being close enough to provide low latency for high availability applications that use multiple Availability Zones. Each Availability Zone is self-contained in terms of power, cooling, and physical security, and is linked by redundant, ultra-low latency networks.

Some of the enterprises clients of AWS in India include Ashok Leyland, Axis Bank, Bajaj Capital, Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories, Edelweiss, HDFC Bank, Tata Elxsi, and Titan.
