The second full region for AWS was launched in Japan as a part of its local region expansion plans

Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently made an announcement that it is soon launching a second full region in Japan. The latest expansion plan will serve as an extension of the already existing AWS center in the Osaka Local Region. The new region is expected to have three Availability Zones (AZs), and it will join the 25 AZs spread across various parts of Asia Pacific like Mumbai, Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore, Beijing, Tokyo, Sydney, and Ningxia. There are more than 80 AZs globally, and the new plan is to set up 15 more AZs and five more regions in India, Spain, Australia, Switzerland, and Indonesia. People of various backgrounds can access the AWS Regions to run their apps locally.

The main motto behind the latest expansion is to serve the end-users in Asia with minimal latency and provide access to the deepest and broadest suite of services. Senior VP of Global Infrastructure and Customer Support at AWS, Peter DeSantis, has stated that AWS Osaka Local Region was launched to help few customers run certain workloads in the Asian region. Since the first region's launch in 2018, the clients have asked AWS to set up a second full region with more AZs. The company is also excited to fulfill the request made by the clients.
