AWS Local Zone to be Launched in Kenya by Amazon

Amazon Web Services (AWS), an Amazon subsidiary that provides on-demand cloud computing platforms, has announced intentions to open a local zone in Kenya.

Local Zones are a type of infrastructure that places computation, storage, databases, and other chosen services near people and industrial hubs.

The new AWS Local Zone in Kenya will join the other 16 existing AWS Local Zones in the United States, as well as another 32 AWS Local Zones set to open in 26 countries across the world beginning in 2022.

More public and private organisations, creative startups, and AWS partners will be able to deploy a new generation of cutting-edge, low-latency apps to end-users thanks to AWS Local Zones.

Customers in Kenya will save the cost of acquiring, running, and maintaining infrastructure in Nairobi to deliver low-latency applications since AWS administers and supports Local Zones.

Customers with local data residency requirements in Kenya can execute parts of their applications in on-premises data centres and link to AWS via the AWS Local Zone, which ensures ultra-low latency for hybrid deployments.

Customers in Kenya will be able to offer single-digit millisecond performance for applications like remote real-time gaming, media and entertainment content creation, live video streaming, engineering simulations, augmented and virtual reality, and machine learning inference at the edge thanks to the AWS Local Zone.
