Amazon Web Services to Open More South Africa Data Centers

To speed up cloud services and reduce costs for its local corporate clients, e-commerce giant will open additional data centers in South Africa. The multinational on Oct 25 made the announcement about the data centers to be opened by the first half of the year 2020.

The new AWS infrastructure region is the latest in a series of AWS investments in South Africa and will enable customers to run workloads and serve end-users across the entire African continent with lower latency.

“Having built the original version of Amazon EC2 in our Cape Town development center 14 years ago, and with thousands of African companies using AWS for years, we’ve been able to witness first-hand the technical talent and potential in Africa,” said Andy Jassy, CEO, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Technology has the opportunity to transform lives and economies across Africa and we’re excited about AWS and the Cloud being a meaningful part of that transformation.”

Focusing on building pioneering networking technologies, next-generation software for customer support and the technology behind Amazon EC2, Amazon in 2004 opened a development center in Cape Town. Also, to help customers move to cloud AWS built a number of local teams that included customer service representatives, account managers, solutions architects, partner managers and more. An office in Johannesburg was opened in 2015 by AWS and it was in 2017 through AWS Direct Connect that brought the Amazon Global Network to Africa.

AWS continued its investment in South Africa by launching infrastructure points of presence in Cape Town and Johannesburg earlier this year in May. AWS by bringing Amazon Cloud Front, Amazon Route 53, AWS Shield and AWS WAF to the African continent added to the 138 points of presence AWS has across the globe.

With the new addition, organizations will be able to provide lower latency to end users enable more African organizations to leverage advanced technologies and drive innovation. With the AWS Cape Town Region, local AWS customers will be able to store their data in South Africa with the assurance that their data will not be moved without their consent. Also, those looking to comply with POPIA (Protection of Personal Information Act) will have access to international compliance standards secured infrastructure.

The addition will further allow organizations to leverage advanced technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, IoT (Internet of Things) and mobile services.
