Aws: Aws To Put $12.7bn In India By ’30 To Boost Cloud Infra | Mumbai News

Mumbai: Amazon Web Services (AWS) on Thursday announced that it intends to invest $12.7 billion by 2030 to boost cloud computing infrastructure in India.
AWS said the investment will contribute around $23.3 billion to India’s GDP by the end of the decade and create over 1.3 lakh jobs every year in Indian businesses related to the data centre supply chain. These include construction, facility maintenance, engineering, and telecommunications.
The company already has two data centre infrastructure regions in India — one set up in Mumbai in 2016, and the other set up in Hyderabad in 2022. It has invested $3.7 billion in the country between 2016 and 2022.
Anupam Mishra, head of technology & solution architecture for AWS India and South Asia, said each region is a collection of availability zones, and that each availability zone can have multiple data centres of its own. Mishra said the reason the company splits up its data centres into zones and regions is to ensure that a failure (due to an earthquake or floods, for example) in any zone will immediately trigger fail-safe conditions to ensure businesses have uninterrupted access to cloud computing services. Globally, the company has 99 availability zones within 31 geographic regions. “Each availability zone is designed to be completely independent. If you are a company that runs sensitive workloads, like a bank, then you naturally would not want any interruption to your services,” added Mishra.
Puneet Chandok, president of commercial business for AWS India and South Asia, said that the investments AWS is making in India is a big testament to the runway that India offers.
