Amazon Web Service's first Asia Pacific region platform launched

Thursday, 13 May, 2010

Amazon Web Service has announced the launch of its first Asia Pacific region platform. Asia Pacific-based businesses or global businesses with customers based in Asia can now leverage the AWS suite of infrastructure web services to build their businesses and run their applications in the cloud. The first AWS Asia Pacific Region (located in Singapore) is now open and any business or software developer can sign up.

The platform allows any business to incur no up-front expenses or long-term commitments, to turn capital expense into variable operating expense, to pay only for what they use, to add or shed resources as quickly as required, to free up scarce engineering resources from the undifferentiated heavy lifting of running their own infrastructure without sacrificing operational performance, reliability or security.

In addition to a broad and global customer base, AWS has a vast partner community that offers customers many different options and flexibility for using AWS. Partners such as Red Hat, Oracle, Sun, MySQL, IBM, and RightScale along with consultancies such as CapGemini, Deloitte, Accenture, Tata Consultancy Services and Patni Computer Systems can assist businesses to take their businesses to the AWS cloud.

Developers and businesses can access AWS services from the Singapore availability zones, including the company’s Elastic Compute Cloud, Simple Storage Service, SimpleDB, Relational Database Service, Simple Queue Service, CloudFront, CloudWatch and Simple Notification Service.
