Amazon Web Services target to get regional growth of cloud computing with data storage ‘zones’ in Bahrain and in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from 2019.
One of the largest technology companies, Amazon informs that they are done with the opening of data centres in Bahrain to provide its customers and partners a new place to store data. The Persian Gulf also known as Arabian Gulf is supplied with submarine cables that could bid overland connections to Saudi Arabia or else would have to get connections in from the Red Sea. Landing Amazon web services in the Gulf of states is simply a triple jump from India, where Amazon’s cloud services are rapidly growing and even low-latency backup would not be annoying.
The Register suspects those elements are more appealing to Amazon Web Services (AWS) than the local user populations which are not immense.
The Middle East country, Bahrain will gain a complete AWS region, with three availability zones contributing an inclusive collection of cloud services, by near the beginning of 2019. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will host a plain edge location in the starting of next year, 2018 with Route 53, Amazon CloudFront, Shield, and WAF on tap.
All latest installations have to face some remarkable challenges and one of them is being the region’s fierce heat. The Register also ponders what would happen if an Israeli company determines to locate some AWS data in either new place, as neither the UAE nor Bahrain recognizes Israel’s existence.
Accidentally, the declaration of the new middle-east region came on the same day when Saudi Arabia announced that it would allow women to drive.
