AWS joins Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced it’s opening in the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

The American electronic commerce and cloud computing company said its opening is to gain customers and partners in a new place, to run code and store data.

By 2019, Bahrain will get full AWS region, with three zones available, offering a “comprehensive” collection of cloud services, according to The Register.

The Register also stated that submarine cables could offer overland connections to Saudi Arabia, which would otherwise have to run connections in from the Red Sea and serve the Gulf of Arabia.

The Gulf is close to India, where cloud services are growing at speed.
