Amazon Web Services (AWS) is planning to launch a cloud region in Taipei, Taiwan and also invest "billions of dollars" in the country over the next 15 years.

“Today, we’re announcing that a new AWS Region will be coming to Taiwan by early 2025,” the company said in an announcement this week. “The new AWS Asia Pacific (Taipei) Region will consist of three Availability Zones at launch, and will give AWS customers in Taiwan the ability to run workloads and store data that must remain in Taiwan.”

“AWS is committed to helping customers of all sizes and across all industries accelerate their digital transformation with the highest levels of security and resilience available,” said Prasad Kalyanaraman, VP of Infrastructure Services at AWS. “The new AWS Region in Taiwan will enable organizations to unlock the full potential of the cloud and build with AWS technologies like compute, storage, databases, analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to drive innovation and transform the way businesses and institutions serve their customers."
