New AWS Asia Pacific (Auckland) Region will create 1,000 new jobs in New Zealand over the next 15 years

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has said that it will be opening an infrastructure region in New Zealand in 2024. The new AWS Asia Pacific (Auckland) will have three Availability Zones.

This newly announced region will be owned by a New Zealand-based AWS entity. This new region will enable more developers, startups, and enterprises as well as government, education, and nonprofit organizations to run their applications and serve end users from data centers located in New Zealand.

This new region will create 1,000 new jobs in New Zealand through $5.3 billion investment. Over the next 15 years, this AWS region will have an estimated economic impact of $7.7 billion on New Zealand's GDP.

"Our investments reflect AWS’s deep and long-term commitment to New Zealand. We are excited to build new world-class infrastructure locally, train New Zealanders with in-demand digital skills, and continue to help local organizations deliver applications that accelerate digital transformation and fuel economic growth," said Prasad Kalyanaraman, Vice President of Infrastructure Services, AWS.

AWS has also announced that it has plans to launch 24 more Availability Zones and eight more AWS Regions in Australia, India, Indonesia, Israel, Spain, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, and the new AWS Region in New Zealand.
