Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced an RM25.5 billion commitment to develop an AWS Cloud Computing Infrastructure in Malaysia. This move will give developers, corporations, startups, and even government, education, and non-profit organizations greater options for running their apps and serving end users from Malaysian data centers.
The first AWS datacentre in Malaysia will consist of three availability zones, allowing for quick access to AWS services and safe data storage. This is supposed to help Malaysia realize its vision of a highly skilled, innovative, wealthy, and sustainable economy.
According to Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim, this investment represents the country’s largest overseas technological investment to date. He was optimistic that the investment will contribute to the advancement of the Malaysia Madani vision and foster long-term economic growth.
Anwar Ibrahim added that providing access to AWS infrastructure, advanced technologies, and cloud skills programs in Malaysia would unlock opportunities for local businesses of all sizes, cultivate a highly skilled workforce, stimulate the creation of new jobs, and foster sustainable economic growth.
This investment by AWS is anticipated to have a substantial influence on Malaysia’s technology industry, creating chances for firms and individuals to innovate and contribute to economic progress. It will also establish Malaysia as a worldwide technological hub, drawing future investments and opportunities.
