Amazon AWS will open a region in Middle East by 2019
AWS is building a new region in Middle East (Bahrain), whose inauguration is expected by 2019.
It will have 3 Availability Zones (other ones are planned) to allow clients and AWS partners to create virtual instance, manage workloads and store data in Middle East.
Additionally, an “edge location” in the United Arab Emirates is expected to be launched in Q1 2018 which will allow to use the Amazon CloudFront, Amazon Route 53, AWS Shield and AWS WAF services in Middle East.
These two announcements sum to the ones about the opening of two AWS offices in Dubai (UAE) and Manama (Bahrain), testifying the growing attention of Amazon towards this part of the World.
