Amazon Web Services (AWS) India has announced that it has received cloud service provider (CSP) empanelment from India’s Ministry of Electronic and Information Technology (MeitY) for cloud services provided using the AWS Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) Region. 

Operational since November 2022, as part of AWS’s total investment of INR 1,36,500 crores (US $16.4 billion) in cloud infrastructure in India by 2030, the AWS Asia-Pacific (Hyderabad) Region is the second AWS Region in India to be fully empaneled by MeitY. 

In 2017, AWS India became the first global CSP in India to receive full empanelment for its cloud service offerings after the AWS Asia-Pacific (Mumbai) Region completed MeitY’s STQC (Standardization Testing and Quality Certification) audit.

AWS Regions are comprised of Availability Zones (AZs) that place infrastructure in separate and distinct geographic locations. AZs are located far enough from each other to support customers’ business continuity, and near enough to provide low latency for high-availability applications that use multiple data centres. 

Public sector organisations and financial services institutions across India, including banking and payment providers, can achieve greater operational resiliency from the AWS Asia-Pacific (Hyderabad) Region – which consists of three AZs – by using its cloud infrastructure for higher availability, disaster recovery, data backup, while meeting security and regulation requirements, and enjoying lower latency performance, AWS said.

Moreover, government organisations can improve e-governance standards and enable on-demand digital services for citizens and businesses across India. Similarly, financial services organisations can benefit from agile, efficient, and security-compliant cloud solutions at scale, providing consumers faster and secure digital banking, insurance, and payment innovations.

“With both AWS Regions in India empaneled by MeitY, AWS is providing customers more choice to access resilient, secure, and low-latency cloud infrastructure, while offering more ability for AWS Partners to develop innovative solutions and address customer needs,” “Shalini Kapoor, director and chief technologist for the public sector with AWS India Private Limited (AWS India), said.
