Together with our AWS Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Region, we’re providing customers with more flexibility and choice while allowing them to architect their infrastructure for even greater fault tolerance, resiliency, and availability across geographic locations."

K.T. Rama Rao, Minister for Information Technology, Electronics & Communications, Municipal Administration and Urban Development and Industries & Commerce Departments, Government of Telangana, said, "We are pleased that AWS has chosen Telangana as the location for its second region in India. Hyderabad is an important talent hub for IT professionals and entrepreneurs, and with the increased adoption of cloud computing, we are set to see a transformation in the way businesses in south India harness the power of IT. Combining the unique resources of Telangana with AWS, the world’s leading cloud, will boost economic development, power digital-led innovation, and establish a cloud center hub for the rest of the country."

These availability zones are technology infrastructures present in distinct geographical locations with enough distance to reduce the risks of a single event impacting customer business opportunity while also providing low latency for applications that require availability applications.

AWS said that its customers would have the option to run applications in multiple availability zones to achieve greater fault tolerance.

The new AWS Asia region in Southern India will consist of three availability zones at launch. It will join the other Amazon Web Services regions and 26 availability zones across Korea, Singapore, Greater China, Australia, Japan, and India. Across the world, AWS has a total of 77 Availability Zones across 24 infrastructure regions. The company stated that it intends to launch 15 more Availability Zones and five more AWS Regions in India, Indonesia, Japan, Spain, and Switzerland.

The new infrastructure region will enable more start-ups, developers, and enterprises from the verticals of the education, government, and non-profit organizations to serve the end-users from the data centers located in India.

It would also offer customers additional infrastructure to leverage advantaged technologies from the world-leading cloud service, which includes the database, storage, analytics, machine learning, IoT, and others.
