Today we are announcing the general availability of AWS Local Zones in Dallas and Philadelphia. Customers can now use these new AWS Local Zones to deliver applications that require single-digit millisecond latency to end-users or on-premises installations in Dallas and Philadelphia metro areas.
AWS Local Zones are a type of AWS infrastructure deployment that places AWS compute, storage, database, and other select services closer to large population, industry, and IT centers where no AWS Region exists today. You can use AWS Local Zones to run applications that require single-digit millisecond latency for use cases such as real-time gaming, hybrid migrations, media & entertainment content creation, live video streaming, engineering simulations, AR/VR, and machine learning inference at the edge.
AWS Local Zones are now generally available in Boston, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, and Philadelphia. With an additional 10 Local Zones launching in 2021 in Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, New York, Phoenix, Portland, and Seattle, customers will be able to deliver ultra-low latency applications to end-users in cities across the US.
