AWS expands Middle East presence with UAE region

Amazon Web Services Announcement

With the launch of its newest region in the Emirates, Amazon Web Services (AWS) will host all of its services and deliver them from its data centers. Earlier this year, AWS launched its infrastructure in South Korea, Asia Pacific, and Canada. As a result, three availability zones (AZs) will be offered in the Middle East-UAE region. Each Availability Zone consists of up to three data centers that are fully isolated. 

Middle East (UAE) is the official name, and me-central-1 is the API name. Using the United Arab Emirates as a data storage and deployment location can start today. AWS Middle East (UAE) joins the AWS Middle East (Bahrain) Region as the second Middle Eastern region.

Not only Amazon Web Services is expanding data centers in the Middle East, but other cloud providers are expanding. For example, Microsoft announced the launch of its new data center in Qatar in collaboration with the Qatari Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. Microsoft Azure services and Microsoft 365 are currently supported in Qatar as the first primary cloud provider. Customers and partners will access this new region based in Doha and offer three zones.

AWS Region

Amazon AWS Regions are geographical areas that offer AWS products and services. For reliable availability of customer content, AWS Regions may include one or more data centers with power sources and distribution networks. Multi-site physical facilities and ISO 27001 certification are used to accomplish this.

There are many regions, such as the US East (New York and Virginia) Region, the EU (Ireland) Region, and The Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region, which encompasses Singapore, India, China, Japan, Korea, and Australia.

AWS Availability Zone

AWS Edge Locations and Regional Availability Zones are the two types of Availability Zones

Physical data centers within a regional availability zone have failover protection from other data centers.

Through Amazon CloudFront, AWS Edge Locations enable low latency access to S3 storage buckets. In addition, deploying applications across regions enables organizations to reach a global audience and deploy quickly in different geographic areas.

AWS Investment in the UAE

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) became more connected thanks to Amazon Web Services Middle East Region. With Availability Zones in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, AWS began operations in the region with four Availability Zones.

54 Availability Zones and 832 EC2 Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances will be available in 36 Availability Zones and 16 regions.

Dubai and Fujairah are two Amazon CloudFront edge locations in the Middle East, along with Bahrain and the UAE.

AWS plans to invest approximately $5 billion (AED 20 billion) in the UAE over the next 15 years through its new Middle East (UAE) Region, which covers capital expenditures related to data center construction, operational expenses related to ongoing utilities, and facility costs, as well as regional business purchases.

As a result of this investment, nearly 6,000 jobs are expected to be created annually during this period. In addition, there will be more than 5,000 jobs in the UAE under AWS’s supply chain. These jobs will be in construction, facility maintenance, engineering, telecommunications, and broader economic sectors. It is also estimated that over the next 15 years, AWS infrastructure in the UAE will contribute $11 billion (AED 41 billion) to the UAE’s GDP.

Conclusion

With ambitious infrastructure development plans and a growing ex-pat population, the United Arab Emirates has become one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. So in the aftermath of Amazon Web Services’ announcement, earlier this month that it would extend cloud services to Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the Emirati workforce and the rapidly expanding tech sector celebrated the news as a significant success.

Google and Oracle have regional headquarters in Dubai, with more than 140 multinational corporations.

In addition to infrastructure, AWS supports Dubai’s digital transformation and economic development by investing in education, training, and startup enablement initiatives.

The company intends to invest approximately AED 20 billion to establish its UAE facility.
