Buenos Aires, December 13, 2022— Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) company, today announced the launch of a new AWS Local Zones in Buenos Aires, Argentina. AWS Local Zones are a type of infrastructure deployment that place AWS computing, storage, database, and other services near major centers of population, industry, and information technology (IT), allowing them to deploy applications that require latency in the single digits of a millisecond to end users or on-premises data centers.

Customers can run workloads with low latency requirements in AWS Local Zones while seamlessly connecting to the rest of their tasks running in AWS Regions. AWS now has 25 AWS Local Zones worldwide, with announced plans to launch 27 more globally. To start using this service, you can visit this page. .

For applications that require latency in the single digits of a millisecond or that have to stay within a geographic boundary for regulatory reasons, the location of the cloud infrastructure is important. Most customer workloads run in an AWS Region, a geographic location where AWS groups data centers to serve customers. However, when a region is not close enough to meet low latency or data residency requirements, customers need AWS infrastructure closer to their data source or end users. Organizations have traditionally kept these location-sensitive workloads on-premises or in managed data centers that require customers to purchase, operate, and maintain their own IT infrastructure, and use different sets of APIs and tools for their environments. on-premises and from AWS.

The launch of the new AWS Local Zones in Buenos Aires offers customers the ability to easily deploy applications located close to end users in the metropolitan area. Having AWS Local Zones close to large population centers in metropolitan areas allows customers to achieve the low latency needed for use cases such as online gaming, live streaming, and augmented and virtual reality. They can also help customers operating in regulated sectors such as healthcare, financial services, and the public sector who have preferences or requirements to keep data within a geographic boundary.

AWS manages and supports AWS Local Zones, which means customers do not incur the expense and effort of acquiring, operating, and maintaining infrastructure across multiple cities to support low-latency applications. AWS Local Zones can also help organizations migrate additional workloads to AWS, supporting a hybrid cloud migration strategy and simplifying IT operations. Customers can connect to AWS Local Zones through an Internet connection. They can also use AWS Direct Connect for a secure and private network connection to both AWS Local Zones and any AWS Region to access AWS services such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and data management.

"With today's launch of the new AWS Local Zones of AWS in Buenos Aires, we are enabling our Argentine customers to serve their end users with even lower latency so they can use the most innovative applications. This infrastructure will help customers Meet the performance requirements of a host of high-performance, latency-sensitive workloads, including clients for real-time remote gaming, machine learning inference, digital banking, and in-country live video streaming ", said Juan Pablo Estevez, Manager of the Commercial Sector in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay at AWS.

Lorena Zicker, AWS Public Sector Manager for the Southern Cone, reinforces AWS's commitment to support government, educational, health and NGO institutions to take advantage of innovative solutions and services for citizens through technology. "The launch of this infrastructure is a key milestone for our public institutions in their digital transformation agenda. We are committed to supporting Argentina's digital transformation journey through continued investments in the country."

Januszewski, director of Cloud at NaranjaX.

We expect this new launch to have a real impact on the customer experience, and we look forward to AWS continuing to expand its network significantly in the coming years," said Rodrigo Liaudat, Toyota Technology & Data Sr Manager for Latin America and the Caribbean.
