These new AWS Local Zones will be available from 2022 in more than 21 countries, including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, India, Kenya, the Netherlands, Norway, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal and South Africa, and will connect with 16 Local Zones across the US, helping you to serve the end-users around the world with an even shorter time lag”.

Millions of customers – including fast-growing start-ups, larger companies and top government agencies – use AWS to cut costs, become more flexible, and innovate faster.
