Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced the launch of its second AWS infrastructure Region in India, located in Hyderabad.

The new infrastructure is expected to support more than 48,000 full-time jobs annually through a planned investment of more than $4.4 billion (Rs 36,300 crore) in India by 2030 and add approximately $7.6 billion (Rs 63,600 crore) to its gross domestic product by the same period.

The new Hyderabad region is poised to help developers, startups, entrepreneurs, and enterprises, as well as government, education, and nonprofit organisations, run their applications with ease and serve end users from data centres located in the country.

With the launch of the AWS Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) Region, AWS now has 96 Availability Zones across 30 geographic regions, with plans to launch 15 more Availability Zones and five more AWS Regions in Australia, Canada, Israel, New Zealand, and Thailand.
