AWS Announces 32 New ‘Local Zones’ Mini Data Centres To Reduce Latency

Cloud infrastructure is rapidly developing, and the new players in the segment such as AWS are revolutionizing the latency aspect with mini data centers termed as ‘Local Zones’. The concept of setting up data centers closer to metropolitan hubs is enabling users in sectors such as machine learning, gaming, streaming, etc. to perform with the least possible latency. AWS promises single-digit millisecond latency to its users.

Not only do Local Zones by AWS provide a much better opportunity to a large range of cloud computing users, but they have also recently announced 32 new zones, bringing the total number of Local Zones to 48. They will be spread across 26 countries, targeting key markets. As of now, AWS Local Zones were available solely inside the USA; but they will now be available across the world including Bangkok, India, Brussels, Oslo, Nairobi, Toronto, Warsaw, Manila, Bogota, and much more.

Most cloud services providers locate their data centers where the tax and electricity are cheap. So, it leads to a lot of latency in services, especially for users of real-time tech. While these companies have been trying to bring down latency by innovating technology, AWS has changed the service provision model itself by downsizing the data centers and locating them in areas that can provide faster connectivity for key markets.

Officials from AWS stated that there are industries where latency is a major factor. Their Local Zones had been performing quite well in the United States, so now they are bringing the service worldwide, in almost all major data hubs. They call their services a part of the ‘edge of the cloud’. This state-of-the-art segment needs yet more exploration, and AWS will surely reveal more innovations in the future.
