Amazon Cloud Web Services Opens in Mumbai Region to better serve Indian market

The new Mumbai region has two Availability Zones, raising the global total to 35. It supports Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) (C4, M4, T2, D2, I2, and R3 instances are available) and related services including Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, Auto Scaling, and  Elastic Load Balancing.

The new Mumbai Region is currently available for multiple services, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS). For a complete list of AWS Regions and services

This Web Services Mumbai region brings the total number of AWS data center farms to 13 worldwide.

In cloud parlance, a “region” is a massive set of data centers built to provide fast services to a given geographic location. The Mumbai facility consists of two availability zones, the equivalent of separate sets of data centers with their own power supplies and facilities.

Roughly 75,000 Indian customers are already remotely using AWS regions outside that country — some have been doing so for many years — or are using the Mumbai region on a trial basis, AWS said.  “Most Indian startups (are) building their entire businesses on AWS,”  said AWS CEO Andy Jassy in a release. Now, with their own, local region, Indian businesses gain lower latency and the reassurance of keeping their data closer by, AWS said.

The Mumbai region brings to six AWS’s total number of regions in the Asia Pacific area, and its worldwide total to 13, the company said.  Each AWS region is isolated from the others. The new region has two availability zones, defined as separate, independent data centers, each with its own power, cooling and security, connected to each other by a high-speed network.

The Mumbai Region data centre would be the sixth in the Asia- Pacific. The company has around 35 such centres across 13 regions globally. Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of the global marketplace giant recently said the company would be investing $5 billion in India.The Mumbai Region data centre would be the sixth in the Asia- Pacific.

The bandwidth required to run this data centre is taken from one of the top telecom operators in India, said one person close to the development without naming the company. The cloud services market in India is expected to reach $1.9 billion by 2018, as per Gartner estimates.

Despite the problems, India has hundreds of millions of Internet users, and that figure is still growing rapidly, along with fast-increasing online businesses. This adds up to a big opportunity for cloud providers, and AWS vice president Andy Jassy had publicly stated that India could become one the largest regions in AWS in the long term.
