The addition of the AWS Africa (Cape Town) Region will enable organizations to provide lower latency to end users across Sub-Saharan Africa and will enable more African organizations to leverage advanced technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Internet of Things (IoT), mobile services, and more to drive innovation.

RecoMed logo

“RecoMed is South Africa’s largest online healthcare booking platform that connects over 150,000 patients and 2,000 healthcare providers every month. The company uses Amazon EC2 for both frontend and backend services, utilizing multiple availability zones and auto scaling groups. Using Amazon EC2, the company can easily manage peak loads on its system, even during the busiest booking times. “I’ve been using Amazon EC2 for almost 10 years and I can’t imagine having to request hardware upgrades or new machines in a physical data center in order to scale,” said Tasleem Williams, COO at RecoMed. “Moving to AWS has simplified our operations and given us full, granular control over our architecture with just a click."
