AWS Local Zones are now available in Delhi and Taipei. You can now use these AWS Local Zones to deliver applications that require single-digit millisecond latency or local data processing.

AWS Local Zones allow you to run applications that require low latency for use cases such as online gaming, hybrid migrations, media and entertainment content creation, live video streaming, engineering simulations, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and machine learning inference at the edge. AWS Local Zones can also help you meet data residency requirements in regulated industries such as healthcare, financial services, and the public sector.

At the beginning of this year, AWS announced plans to launch AWS Local Zones in an additional 33 metro areas across 27 countries. This first international expansion of AWS Local Zones brings AWS infrastructure closer to millions of end users. AWS Local Zones are also generally available in 16 metro areas in the US (Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, and Seattle).

You can enable AWS Local Zones from the Zones tab in Settings of the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) console or the ModifyAvailabilityZoneGroup API. To learn more, see AWS Local Zones.
