Strengthening our commitment to Australia

Our customers never stop building. And because they never stop, their
need for security, availability, performance, scalability, and
flexibility over how they choose to run their workloads never stop. At
AWS, we are customer obsessed, so we never stop building either. That is
why we have created more than 175 services, which we offer from 24 AWS
Regions around the world to give our customers the best possible cloud
experience, no matter where they are. We are excited to be announcing
plans to launch a second infrastructure region in Australia in the
second half of 2022. The new AWS Asia Pacific Region will be located in
the Australian city of Melbourne and will deliver even lower latency to
customers and their end users in Asia Pacific.
