AWS is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 200 fully featured services from data centres globally. Millions of customers—including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies—are using AWS to lower costs, become more agile, and innovate faster. Recently, AWS announced a plan to open the Asia Pacific (Melbourne) region due to open the second half of 2022 with three Availability Zones. In addition to the Asia Pacific (Sydney) Region, there are already seven Amazon CloudFront Edge locations in Australia, backed by a Regional Edge cache in Sydney. This is the second region in Australia, and our ninth in Asia Pacific, joining the existing region in Australia along with those in China, India, Japan, Korea, and Singapore. There are 77 Availability Zones within 24 AWS Regions in operation today, with 18 more Availability Zones and six more Regions (including this one) underway.
Amazon built Amazon Web Services (AWS) because we wanted to move faster.
