Amazon Web Services (AWS) on Thursday announced the launch of a new AWS Local Zone in New Delhi. The company, in a press release, said that the launch marks the first international expansion of AWS Local Zones outside the US to include new locations in Delhi and Taipei. 

AWS Local Zones are variants of infrastructure deployment which place AWS compute, storage, database, and other services near large populations, industry, and information technology (IT) centers⁠. Customers can run workloads with low latency requirements on AWS Local Zones while connecting to remaining workloads running in AWS regions.

The new launch in Delhi would give customers the ability to easily deploy applications located close to end-users in the metro area. Having these deployed in such areas would enable customers to achieve the low latency for cases like online gaming and augmented and virtual reality.

It would help customers operating in regulated sectors like health care, financial services, and the public sector. The AWS Local Zones will also help organizations migrate additional workloads to AWS Cloud, supporting a hybrid cloud migration strategy and simplifying IT operations. 

Puneet Chandok, president of commercial business of AWS India says, “With the launch of a new AWS Local Zone in Delhi, we are excited to bring the cloud closer to AWS customers, so they can deploy latency-sensitive workloads that help serve their end-users better. The launch of an AWS Local Zone in Delhi is a continuation of our investment to support customers running all types of workloads by bringing the most secure, extensive, and reliable cloud infrastructure to more locations in India.”
Over the past 15 years, Amazon Web Services is the world’s most-adopted cloud offering with over 200 fully featured services for storage, compute, databases, analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI).
