Amazon Web Services to invest over ₹20,000 crore in Telangana
The Telangana government on Friday announced that Amazon Web Services (AWS), one of the largest cloud computing platforms in the world, has come forward to set up multiple data centres in the state at an estimated investment of Rs 20,761 crore.
The investment of Rs20,761 crore from AWS will position Telangana as one of the preferred destinations for other companies that are looking to set up data centres in the state in the near future.
The AWS would set up an AWS Region with three Availability Zones (AZs) in Hyderabad. The AWS Asia-Pacific region is expected to start operations in Hyderabad by the middle of 2022. The AZs would consist of multiple data centres in separate locations within a single region that are engineered to be operationally independent of one another with power, cooling, physical security, and connections via a low-latency network.
The new AWS Asia-Pacific (Hyderabad) Region will enable even more developers, start-ups, and enterprises as well as government, education, and non-profit organisations to run their applications and serve end-users from data centres located in the country.
Establishment of data centres in a region would increase the operations of sectors such as e-commerce, public sector, banking and financial services and insurance (BFSI), IT, etc, it added.
