AWS aims to Triple Local Zone footprint with Global Expansion


AWS is set to open four new mini data centers in India over the next two years, one each in Bangalore, Kolkata, Delhi, and Chennai.

These are a part of the AWS broader plan to open around 32 such local zones in 26 countries over the next two years.

AWS describes the Local Zones as a type of infrastructure that will support the AWS regions to compute databases, storage, and some other AWS services at the edge of the cloud, near populated locations and industry IT centers.

Executive Opinion

Prasad Kalyanaraman, Vice President of Infrastructure Services at AWS, said, "The edge of the cloud is expanding and is now becoming available virtually everywhere. Thousands of AWS customers using U.S.-based AWS Local Zones are able to optimize low-latency applications designed specifically for their industries and the use cases of their customers. With the success of our first Local Zones in 16 U.S. cities, we are expanding to more locations for our customers around the world who have asked for these same capabilities to push the edge of cloud services to new places. AWS Local Zones will now be available in over 30 new locations globally, providing customers with a powerful new capability to leverage cloud services within a few milliseconds of hundreds of millions of end-users around the world."

AWS Local Zones' Expansion

These Local Zones, which are built-in highly populous areas, will provide cloud services for its customers who need near-zero latency for their apps, some use cases of which are for video streaming, apps, and gaming that require real-time feedback.

AWS, as of now, has 16 Local Zones, which are all present in US cities and used for the edge computing capabilities for companies such as Ubitus and Netflix.

AWS also revealed that the customers for the local zones would get the usual benefits such as the pay-as-you-go model, access to application programming interfaces, and some other AWS tools.
