AWS introduces new infrastructure called Dedicated Local Zones

This week, Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced a new cloud infrastructure offering, Dedicated Local Zones, which it said is designed to help public sector and regulated industry customers meet their security, data isolation, and compliance requirements for digital sovereignty.

The infrastructure is fully managed by AWS, built for exclusive use by a customer or community, and placed in a customer-specified location or data centre to help comply with regulatory requirements, it said.

This, AWS added, “enables customers to use the multi-tenancy features of the cloud to efficiently enable adoption across multiple AWS accounts created by a customer’s community of agencies and business units, and reduce the operational overhead of managing on-premises infrastructure. They can then take full advantage of the performance, innovation, elasticity, scalability, and resiliency benefits of the cloud.”
