Greatresponder.com – 2011-07-14 – Today, international cloud computing company and wholesale giant Amazon Web Services announces to their web hosting costumers that it opened a new office complete with dedicated local staff in Australia. The devoted staff members will be available to service the cloud computing market. Rumors are continuing to swirl around if AWS are planning on establishing a new datacenter located in Australia as well, to meet their costumers demands.
At the classy Sofitel Wentworth hotel in the downtown central business district were Amazon’s Web Services division’s Asia-Pacific managing director, Shane Owenby and global chief technology officer Werner Vogels. They had a half-day presentation about cloud web hosting to a group of costumers similar to an event that was help earlier this week in Melbourne earlier in the week in Melbourne.
In the past, costumers were unsure if they would see a dedicated staff in Australia or either Amazon actually had a dedicated staff there. Conversely, as told to the crowd that the company had launched a local office to support its growing web hosting cloud computing business by Shane Owenby. So when the costumer’s at the presentation asked “Will we see staff in Australia?” Owenby: “The answer is yes.”
The absence of local dedicated staff wasn’t the only reason stopping Australian costumers from joining Amazon’s web services. The absence of datacenters located close to Australia was another reason. Most datacenters are located on the West Coast of the United States. The closest ones are in Singapore. Other main facilities and datacenters are located in America’s East Coast, Europe and Japan. Those operate a number of other smaller fringe facilities as part of its global content distribution network.
