AWS Launches its Data Regions in Mumbai, India – A Competitive Advantage for Enterprises
Amazon has recently launched its first set of Datacenters in Mumbai, India to cater to cloud computing services here thus, participating in a race for the top cloud provider position in India. With this launch it has increased its total tally of Datacenters across the World to 35 and the total number of Regions that AWS caters to, has also increased to 13. Prior to this, AWS was serving in 12 regions namely the U.S. West (California and Oregon), U.S. East (Virginia), Brazil, Europe (Germany and Ireland), East Asia (Tokyo, Seoul, and Beijing), Southeast Asia (Singapore) and Australia (Sydney). AWS has been serving over 75,000 active AWS customers in India alone and with this launch this number is expected to increase multifold. With its list of cutting edge technology services AWS has launched in the Mumbai center, it looks promising to sway a meaty market share.Amazon Cloudwatch, Amazon CloudWatch Logs, Amazon Dynamo DB, Amazon ElastiCache, Amazon Elastic Block Store(EBS), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Elastic MapReduce, Amazon Elastic search service, Amazon Glacier, Amazon Kinesis Streams, Amazon Redshift, Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), Auto Scaling, VM Import/Export, Elastic Load Balancing, AWS Import/ Export Snowball, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon EMR, AWS Support. These services are critical for many Organizations and interest many Industry verticals which look for an end to end solution. The presence of AWS Datacenters in their own country helps organizations in low latency and data sovereignty. In addition to this, for Industries like BFSI which face many government regulations and are not allowed to transfer or keep any form of Data outside of the Country will look forward to such a technology shift intensely. In the coming months it is foreseeable that more and more companies from BFSI domain will be migrating to AWS. More services which are expected from AWS to be brought shortly in its Datacenters here are:Amazon API Gateway, Amazon App stream, Amazon CloudSearch, Amazon Cognito, Amazon Database Migration service, Amazon EC2 Container system, Amazon Elastic Transcoder, Amazon Kinesis Firehose, AWS Device Farm, AWS IOT, AWS Lambda. The major chunk of these services are mainly in Tokyo and Sydney Datacenters. But that’s how AWS operates. In the coming months, the Mumbai Datacenters will also have full capability depending on the requirement of the Businesses. This will not only help organizations in terms of better AWS support and full scale migration to AWS, but will also help its partners to scale up their operations.
