Early in 2023, Amazon Mexico’s cloud unit will launch a “local zone.”
Reuters, MEXICO CITY, September 21 – According to Luis Velasco, director of Amazon Web Services Mexico (AWS), a division of Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O), a local hub would be opened in the first quarter to increase bandwidth for clients.
He told Reuters on the sidelines of the AWS tech conference here that the hub would bring computing, storage, database, and other services closer to huge populations and IT centres, enhancing bandwidth for uses like streaming video.
The hub runs applications for real-time gaming, hybrid migrations, media and entertainment content creation, and engineering simulations using infrastructure deployment referred to as “local zones.”
In the first three months of 2023, AWS Mexico will also establish new offices in Guadalajara and Monterrey, according to Velasco. To increase its activities in the nation, it is forming agreements with regional businesses.
Fernando Zamora, head of products and marketing for Totalplay, a telecoms company controlled by Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas, announced during the conference that the company will offer consulting for AWS’ cloud services.
In order to strengthen its position in the Mexican cloud industry, which Zamora said might increase from $1.4 billion in 2021 to $2.7 billion in 2025, Totalplay will collaborate with AWS.
According to him, Mexico is the fourth-largest cloud market in the Americas, behind the US, Canada, and Brazil.
