Amazon Web Services Launches Third Availabili­ty Zone in Mumbai

- DQ Bureau

Amazon Web Services has announced the expansion of services to include a third Availabili­ty Zone in the AWS Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Region to support the rapid growth of the AWS customer base in India. The new Availabili­ty Zone provides customers with more choice, flexibilit­y, reduced latency, the ability to replicate workloads across more Availabili­ty Zones, and even higher reliabilit­y. This launch continues AWS’s expansion of Availabili­ty Zones in India to match increasing customer demand, and comes three months after AWS announced the launch of additional Amazon CloudFront and AWS Direct Connect locations in the country. Currently, AWS provides 65 Availabili­ty Zones across 21 geographic regions globally with another 12 Availabili­ty Zones across four regions coming online in Bahrain, Indonesia, Italy, and South Africa.

“Our continued expansion of Availabili­ty Zones in India is a result of the strong, and growing customer momentum we are seeing in the country across customer segments, and we’re delighted to enhance the AWS Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Region with another Availabili­ty Zone to allow our customers the ability to continue building and ex

panding their businesses on AWS Cloud,” said Navdeep Manaktala, Head of Business Developmen­t, Amazon Internet Services Private Limited.“AWS’s commitment to the rapidly growing India customer base is illustrate­d in the addition of another Availabili­ty Zone thereby providing AWS customers with another local option to run missioncri­tical workloads, innovate faster, enjoy reduced latency, and store data while delivering the additional security that only AWS Cloud can provide.”

Using AWS to bring content to customers across India, Tata Sky is recognised as a pioneer and innovator in the direct-to-home segment in the country.“We are excited to get additional flexibilit­y with the third Availabili­ty Zone in the AWS Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Region to architect highly scalable, fault-tolerant applicatio­ns that run across two or more AZs which will boost our resilience and help support growth of our digital platforms,” said YigsRiza, CTO of Tata Sky. “AWS has provided us with unmatched agility to scale up or down resources as we need them, while also enabling us to bring new ideas to market at a faster pace, and a third AZ only enhances those capabiliti­es.”
