AWS New Local Zone: Opportunities for Cloud Computing in Portugal

Werner Vogels, vice-president and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Amazon give the good news to Portuguese companies: Portugal is one of the 21 countries in which the group’s cloud computing company will install a “AWS Local Zone“ in 2022.

AWS Local Zones are a type of Amazon infrastructure deployment that places AWS compute, storage, database and other services that allow companies to deliver applications with latency requirements of less than ten milliseconds to users. It gives customers easier access to data services such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, Amazon Elastic Block Store, Amazon Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon ElastiCache or Amazon Relational Database Service. In other words, it is a way to decentralize and accelerate services and information, making it more available to customers at technological centers.

According to AWS “local zones allow customers to get all the benefits of having computing and storage resources closer to end-users, without the need to own and operate their own datacenter infrastructure”. These local zones connect to key regions through private and high-speed broadband networks. Operating this way Amazon can extend its services to a greater number of geographies, complementing the capacity of already existing data centers of the company.

Ritain.io is an official partner of AWS, and operates in several worldwide geographies, including Portugal. The creation of a local zone in Portugal is exciting news for us, as it will enable us to offer Portuguese companies AWS cloud services with even more benefits. Through our team of certified experts, we will also be able to better support our customers who need to deploy applications that require low latency requirements or local data processing.
