In November 2020, Jeff announced the upcoming AWS Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) as the second Region in India. Yes! Today we are announcing the general availability of the 30th AWS Region, Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) Region, with three Availability Zones and the
ap-south-2 API name.
The Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) Region is located in the state of Telangana. As the capital and the largest city in Telangana, Hyderabad is already an important talent hub for IT professionals and entrepreneurs. For example, AWS Hyderabad User Groups has more than 4,000 community members and holds active meetups, including an upcoming Community Day in January 2023.
The new Hyderabad Region gives customers an additional option for running their applications and serving end users from data centers located in India. Customers with data-residency requirements arising from statutes, regulations, and corporate policy can run workloads and securely store data in India while serving end users with even lower latency.
Here are the latest numbers of latency:

AWS in India
AWS has a long-standing history of helping drive digital transformation in India. AWS first established a presence in the country in 2011, with the opening of an office in Delhi. In 2016, AWS launched the Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Region giving enterprises, public sector organizations, startups, and SMBs access to state-of-the-art public cloud infrastructure. In May 2019, AWS expanded the Region to include a third Availability Zone to support rapid customer growth and provide more choice, flexibility, the ability to replicate workloads across more Availability Zones, and even higher availability.
There are currently 33 Amazon CloudFront edge locations: Mumbai, India (10), New Delhi (7), Chennai (7), Bangalore (4), Hyderabad (3), and Kolkata (2) in India. The edge locations work in concert with a CloudFront Regional edge cache in Mumbai to speed delivery of content. There are six AWS Direct Connect locations, all of which connect to the Asia Pacific (Mumbai) Region: two in Mumbai, one in Chennai, one in Hyderabad, one in Delhi, and one in Bangalore. Finally, the first AWS Local Zones launched in Delhi, India for bringing selected AWS services very close to a particular geographic area. We announced plans to launch three more AWS Local Zones in India, in the cities of Chennai, Bengaluru, and Kolkata.
AWS is also investing in the future of the Indian technology community and workforce, training tech professionals to expand their skillset and cloud knowledge. In fact, since 2017, AWS has trained over three million individuals in India on cloud skills. AWS has worked with government officials, educational institutes, and corporate organizations to achieve this milestone, which has included first-time learners and mid-career professionals alike.
AWS continues to invest in upskilling local developers, students, and the next generation of IT leaders in India through programs such as AWS Academy, AWS Educate, AWS re/Start, and other Training and Certification programs.
