Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced plans to open an infrastructure region in Thailand.
The new AWS Asia Pacific (Bangkok) region will consist of three availability zones, adding to the existing 87 availability zones across 27 geographic regions.
The upcoming AWS region in Thailand will enable developers, start-ups and enterprises, as well as government, education and non-profit organisations, to run their applications and serve end-users from AWS data centres located in Thailand, ensuring customers who want to keep their data in Thailand can do so.
In addition, as part of its commitment to the region, AWS plans an estimated investment of more than US$5 billion (190 billion baht) in Thailand over 15 years.
“We are committed to supporting Thailand’s Digital Transformation through our local infrastructure investments and fast pace of innovation, helping Thailand-based customers unlock the full potential of the cloud to transform the way businesses and institutions serve their stakeholders,” said Prasad Kalyanaraman, Vice President of Infrastructure Services at AWS.
“The AWS Asia Pacific (Bangkok) region will enable organisations to build with AWS technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, data analytics and IoT. With these new tools, AWS is empowering governments to better engage with citizens, enterprises to innovate for their next phase of growth and entrepreneurs to build businesses and compete on a global scale.”Click below to share this article
