AWS Summit 2022: Amazon’s Cloud Computing Division Expands to More Regions Around the World

Amazon Web Services (aws), Amazon's cloud computing and services division, announced at its annual summit in Washington the new world regions in which it will begin to operate this year and next, including a headquarters in Argentina that will improve connectivity for companies and government agencies that use cloud computing's processing power.

Max Peterson, an AWS public sector spokesperson, gave a lecture in the main auditorium of the Washington Convention Center that summarized the company's connectivity announcements since last year: "AWS currently offers 26 global cloud computing regions made up of data centers with 84 availability zones. We're announcing plans for eight more AWS Regions throughout the world, totaling over 24 Availability Zones," he said.

"We've started to use 'local regions' to extend the cloud to more locations. The local zone expands the cloud in the United States to 16 different locations, and we've announced plans to launch 32 other local zones in metropolitan regions across 26 nations in the next two years," Peterson said at the Clarion conference.

While explaining this, Peterson displayed a map that included the local region that will open this year and next in Argentina. These zones are designed to improve internet access and AWS services for other businesses.

Edenor, Mercado Libre, the Technological Institute of Buenos Aires (ITBA), the Italian Hospital in the City of Buenos Aires, and the Municipality of Córdoba are just a few of the institutions in Argentina that employ Amazon Web Services' processing capacity.

The opening session of the AWS Summit in 2022 featured a significant number of examples to highlight the things and services in which the service is critical in a more specific way.

Health, mail and artificial intelligence

Peterson emphasized the role of technological advances during the coronavirus health crisis and also referred to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. “Throughout these challenging times, our public sector customers have responded quickly and have innovated with the cloud to save lives and provide critical services to citizens.”

"We assist our clients in the areas of education, public administration, health, aerospace and satellites, as well as non-profit organizations," stated a spokeswoman for the company.

The communications system –USPS, the US postal system, artificial intelligence –Hypergiant-, and health –Tufts Medicine- are three significant public sector applications in which AWS helps systems infrastructure.

Pritha Mehra, the USPS's CIO, spoke during the keynote on how the USPS used AWS to respond to a White House order to conduct 350 million Covid testing around the country.

Following that, Quentin Donnellan, president of Hypergiant, an artificial intelligence and machine learning firm, showed how they offer analytics data to the US military and security agencies nearly instantly.

In the sphere of health, Peterson mentioned the University of British Columbia, which used the Amazon Web Services artificial intelligence and machine learning technology to evaluate 6 million biological tests and uncover 9 novel coronavirus strains. All of this happened in just 11 days.

"Remember that our global infrastructure is built on a foundation of security: AWS automatically encrypts all traffic on our global and regional networks between the secure facilities of AWS," Peterson concluded, without mentioning a hot topic over the last two years in which cybercrime has increased exponentially.

Above all, working online necessitates extra caution when handling sensitive data, which is easily available to fraudsters if not adequately protected.
