Peru will become a digital development hub for the region. This came after the announcement by the technological transnational brand Amazon Web Services (AWS) choosing our country as a new local zone for its public cloud infrastructure —as part of its expansion strategy in Latin America.

"In Peru, we have been strengthening digital governance, and this is reflected in international indicators. Thanks to these advances, one of the largest technology companies in the world, such as Amazon Web Services, has opted for our country to become a digital development center," said Marushka Chocobar, Secretary of Government and Digital Transformation at the Presidency of the Council of Ministers.

As a local zone (AWS Local Zones), the company will place computing, storage, database, and other cloud services near large centers of population, industry, and information technology.

This contributes to implementing apps such as real-time remote gaming; entertainment and media creation; live video streaming; engineering simulations; virtual and augmented reality; machine learning inference at the edge; and more.

This level of investment in infrastructure and digital platforms —to be located in the city of Lima— will open up great opportunities for the country's digital ecosystem, as well as for economic reactivation, employability, digital entrepreneurship, and the national digital transformation process.

Over the next two years, new AWS Local Zones will be launched in Toronto, Vancouver, Amsterdam, Athens, Auckland, Bangkok, Bengaluru, Berlin, Bogota, Brisbane, Brussels, Buenos Aires, Chennai, Copenhagen, Delhi, Hanoi, Helsinki, Johannesburg, Kolkata, Lima, Lisbon, Manila, Munich, Nairobi, Oslo, Perth, Prague, Querétaro, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Vienna, and Warsaw.
