Amazon Web Services has launched two new local zones in Bangkok, Thailand, and Kolkata, India.

In a Nutshell, AWS Local Zones work as small edge locations that help host low-latency applications. And, every local zone provides services like computing, storage, and database, proximal to population centers for latency-sensitive applications, generally where the cloud giant (Amazon) doesn’t have an existing data center footprint.

Last month, AWS launched 4 Local Zones in Argentina, Denmark, Finland, and Oman as a part of its program to expand into other countries.

Back in June month, Amazon announced the launch of 17 Local Zones in the US as well as 32 Zones internationally. The cloud giant likewise manages and operates about 29 Wavelength Zones spread across seven countries. These Wavelength Zones are embedded by AWS compute and storage services at the Edge of communications service providers’ 5G networks.

AWS has partnered with several Telecom giants like Verizon, Vodafone, KDDI, SK Telecom, and Bell Canada.

Additionally, Amazon also runs an EdgeFront content delivery network with 310 Points of Presence in 90 cities across 47 countries. AWS also offers AWS Outposts, a fully managed solution delivering AWS infrastructure and services virtually, and that too on any on-premises or edge location.
