AWS plans to launch new AWS Local Zones across Latin America to contribute to the region’s economic diversification. The new locations include Bogotá, Colombia; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Lima, Peru; Queretaro, Mexico; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and Santiago, Chile. AWS is helping to develop more resilient economies that promote long-term economic growth. The low-latency offered by Local Zones can make new use cases possible for public sector organizations.
AWS hosted its first-ever Latin America AWS Public Sector Summit in Bogota on Thursday, March 28th, 2019. More than 800 attendees from Colombia and the region joined us to learn about innovation across the public sector, sustainability, database migrations, and the next generation of tech talent. The President of Colombia, Iván Duque Márquez, helped kick off the keynote presentation with a fireside chat discussing the technology opportunities and initiatives that Colombia is pursuing.
