Amazon Web Services Launches Brazil Datacenters for Its Cloud Computing Platform

December 19, 2011 by · Comments Off on Amazon Web Services Launches Brazil Datacenters for Its Cloud Computing Platform 

Web Hosting ServicesSEATTLE – Amazon Web Services LLC (AWS), an Amazon.com company, today announced the launch of its new South America (Sao Paulo) Region, the eighth geographic Region worldwide in which the company has deployed its global cloud computing platform. South American-based businesses and global companies with customers in South America can now leverage the AWS suite of infrastructure web services to build their businesses and run their applications in the cloud.

Before AWS launched in early 2006, businesses would take on the massive capital investment of building their own infrastructure or contracting with a vendor for a fixed amount of datacenter capacity that they might or might not use. This choice meant either paying for wasted capacity or having to worry that the amount of capacity they forecasted was insufficient to keep pace with their growth. Many businesses spent time and money managing their own datacenter or a co-location facility, which meant time not spent on growing their actual business or differentiating their offering for customers. Over the past five years, AWS has changed the way that businesses think about technology infrastructure–incur no up-front expenses or long-term commitments, turn capital expense into variable operating expense, scale seamlessly by adding or shedding resources as quickly as you wish, free up scarce engineering resources from the undifferentiated heavy lifting of running your own infrastructure–all without sacrificing operational performance, reliability, or security.
