AWS for the Edge

Bring the world’s most capable and secure cloud to you
AWS edge services deliver data processing, analysis, and storage close to your endpoints, allowing you to deploy APIs and tools to locations outside AWS data centers. Build high-performance applications that can process and store data close to where it’s generated, enabling ultra-low latency, intelligent, and real-time responsiveness.
Experience consistency from edge to cloud
Build an application once and deploy it on the cloud and at the edge. AWS is the only provider that extends infrastructure, services, APIs, and tools offered in the cloud as a fully managed service to virtually any on-premises datacenter or co-location space.
Raise your security posture
Maintain security and compliance from edge to cloud with AWS infrastructure and services. Apply preventive mechanisms like encryption and access control to securely store and process data that must remain on-premises or at the edge.
