Amazon Web Services Inc.  announced the opening of a third Availability Zone in the AWS Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region to support the rapid growth of the AWS customer base in Asia Pacific. The new Availability Zone will allow customers already using Amazon Web Services with more choice, flexibility, and even higher reliability.


Availability Zones refer to technology infrastructure in separate and distinct geographic locations with enough distance to significantly reduce the risk of a single event impacting availability, yet near enough for business continuity applications that require rapid fail over.

Each Availability Zone has independent power, cooling, and physical security, and is connected to national backbone networks via high-speed fiber optic networks. AWS customers focused on high availability can design their applications to run in multiple Availability Zones to achieve even higher fault-tolerance.

AWS also provides Amazon CloudFront services at edge locations in Kuala Lumpur, Manila, and Singapore for customers looking to deliver websites, applications, and content to end users with lower latency. 


 Customers ranging from start-up businesses to international corporations and public sector organizations are using the AWS Singapore Region to build and run their business in the AWS Cloud. Some examples include Air Asia, Astro Holdings Malaysia Berhad, Ayala Land, Banyan Tree, Bureau of Customs of the Philippines, Carro Singapore, DBS Bank, DoHome, Grab, Genome Institute of Singapore, Globe Telecom, Government Technology of Singapore (GOVTECH), iflix, International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Land Transport Authority of Singapore, Maybank, PropertyGuru, ServisHero, Singapore

Land Authority, Stock Exchange of Thailand, Toyota Tsusho Nexty Electronics Thailand, Vietjet, World Vision and Zalora.

APN Partners across Asia Pacific also welcomed the expansion of the AWS Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region. The APN includes tens of thousands of independent software vendors (ISVs) and systems integrators (SIs) around the world, with APN Partner participation in Asia growing significantly during the past 12 months.

APN Partners build innovative solutions and services on the AWS Cloud. The APN network provides partners with business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market (GTM) support.
