George Pawlyszyn, General Manager, Middle East and Africa, Rackspace Technology, said: “As a Principal Consulting Partner, we are proud to support the launch of AWS’s second Middle East region. Choose an important step in helping your customers succeed.”
AWS Regions consist of Availability Zones that place infrastructure in different geographic locations. Availability Zones are far enough apart to support business continuity for customers, yet close enough to provide low latency for high availability applications using multiple Availability Zones. Each Availability Zone has independent power, cooling, and physical security, and is connected via redundant, ultra-low latency networking. AWS customers focused on high availability can design their applications to run in multiple Availability Zones for greater fault tolerance. The launch of the AWS Middle East (UAE) Region will enable local customers with data residency requirements to securely store data in the UAE while providing lower latency for customers across the country.
