We will be launching AWS Local Zones in 32 cities in 26 countries, including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, India, Kenya, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, South Africa, Thailand and Vietnam.

Local zones are an AWS type of infrastructure placing computing capacity, data storage, databases and other services closer to major cities and industrial hubs. That way AWS clients will be able to develop applications requiring minimum latency, below one-hundredth of a second, close to the final users.
