AWS 30th Region – Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) Region open in India


Together with the AWS Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Region, the AWS Hyderabad Region will provide you with more choice and flexibility to run workloads with greater resiliency, securely store data, and serve end users with lower latency.

The Hyderabad Region consists of three Availability Zones and offers an in-country infrastructure for customers to comply with data-residency and regulatory requirements. AWS is committed to offering customers a strong compliance framework, advanced tools, and security measures. Customers can use these options to evaluate and comply with applicable legal and regulatory requirements.

Today AWS announced the general availability of the 30th AWS Region, Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) Region, with three Availability Zones and the ap-south-2 API name.

The Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) Region is located in the state of Telangana. As the capital and the largest city in Telangana, Hyderabad is already an important talent hub for IT professionals and entrepreneurs. For example, AWS Hyderabad User Groups has more than 4,000 community members and holds active meetups, including an upcoming Community Day in January 2023.

Please note that there are currently 33 Amazon CloudFront edge locations: Mumbai, India (10), New Delhi (7), Chennai (7), Bangalore (4), Hyderabad (3), and Kolkata (2) in India. The edge locations work in concert with a CloudFront Regional edge cache in Mumbai to speed delivery of content. There are six AWS Direct Connect locations, all of which connect to the Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Region: two in Mumbai, one in Chennai, one in Hyderabad, one in Delhi, and one in Bangalore. Finally, the first AWS Local Zones launched in Delhi, India for bringing selected AWS services very close to a particular geographic area. We announced plans to launch three more AWS Local Zones in India, in the cities of Chennai, Bengaluru, and Kolkata.

The AWS Region in Hyderabad is estimated to support an average of more than 48,000 full-time jobs annually through a planned investment of more than $4.4 billion (INR 36,300 crores) in India by 2030.
