Amazon Web Services has launched a new region in Spain. With this launch, the company has opened its eight regions in the continent. Like AWS’ other regions, the Spanish region also launched with three availability zones. AWS had announced in the past that it would invest up to €2.5 billion ($2.6bn) in Spain over the next ten years. It also noted that it would create up to 1,300 full-time jobs in the process. 

AWS’ VP of Infrastructure, Prasad Kalyanaraman, said: “The cloud enables organizations of all types and sizes to speed up innovation, improve business processes, and reinvent experiences for their customers and end users. We are delivering on our promise to build new world-class infrastructure locally to help customers in Spain achieve the highest levels of security, availability, and resilience.”
