AWS opens third availability zone in Asia Pacific

aws-wind-farmAmazon Web Services announced the opening of a third Availability Zone in the AWS Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region to add more customers in Asia Pacific.

Some of the main clients of AWS Asia Pacific include Air Asia, Astro Holdings Malaysia, Ayala Land, Banyan Tree, Bureau of Customs of the Philippines, Carro Singapore, DBS Bank, DoHome, Grab, Genome Institute of Singapore, Globe Telecom, among others.

The existing and new customers of AWS can utilize the new availability zones that offer localized technology infrastructure to significantly reduce the risk of a single event impacting availability, yet near enough for business continuity applications that require failover.

AWS said its enterprise customers focused on high availability can design their applications to run in multiple Availability Zones to achieve even higher fault-tolerance.

AWS also provides Amazon CloudFront services at edge locations in Kuala Lumpur, Manila, and Singapore for customers looking to deliver websites, applications, and content to end users with lower latency.

“Responding to demand from local customers and Amazon Partner Network (APN) Partners, AWS is increasing its commitment to the fast-growing Southeast Asia region by opening a third Availability Zone,” said Nick Walton, managing director, ASEAN, Amazon Web Services.

The US-based Cloud-based hosting company said customers ranging from start-up businesses to international corporations and public sector organizations are using the AWS Singapore Region to run their business in the AWS Cloud.

Singapore Airlines is one of the clients of AWS.

“Our data analytics platform and app are already hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS), and we will soon be moving our website to it in line with our cloud first strategy,” said George Wang, senior vice president Information Technology, Singapore Airlines.

APN Partners build solutions and services on the AWS Cloud. The APN network provides partners with business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market (GTM) support.

Varoon D Rajani, CEO of BlazeClan Technologies, said: “This will allow customers in Singapore and across South East Asia to leverage additional capacity and flexibility to build scalable and highly available applications.”
