Amazon Web Services is planning to open a cloud region in Bangkok, Thailand.
As a part of AWS’s investment of over $5 billion in the country within 15 years, a new Bangkok cloud region consisting of three Availability Zones will be built.
Meanwhile, Vice President of Infrastructure Services at AWS, Prasad Kalyanaraman, said, “We are committed to supporting Thailand’s digital transformation through our local infrastructure investments and fast pace of innovation, helping Thailand-based customers unlock the full potential of the cloud to transform the way businesses and institutions serve their stakeholders.”
He said, “The AWS Asia Pacific (Bangkok) Region will enable organizations to build with AWS technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning, data analytics, and the Internet of Things. With these new tools, AWS empowers governments to better engage with citizens, enterprises to innovate for their next growth phase, and entrepreneurs to build businesses and compete on a global scale.”
Additionally, AWS is planning to build a Local Edge Zone in Bangkok.
If we talk about AWS counterparts, Tencent has two cloud regions in Bangkok, Alibaba has one region, and Google is building its Thai cloud region.
At present, Microsoft and Oracle don’t have any cloud region in Thailand.
