Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) company Amazon Web Services, Inc. has reported plans to open an infrastructure region in Israel within the first half of 2023. The AWS Israel Region located in Tel Aviv will enable more startups, developers, enterprises, government, non-profits and education to run their applications and serve end users from data centers located in Israel. The government of Israel has also announced its selection of AWS as primary cloud provider as a segment of the “Nimbus” contract for government ministries and subsidiaries. “The new AWS Israel (Tel Aviv) Region will empower more public and private institutions, innovative startups, and global companies to deliver built-for-the-cloud applications that help fuel economic development across the country. It is the latest in our list of AWS Regions across Europe and the Middle East, which includes existing regions in Bahrain, Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, Sweden, and the UK as well as regions under development in Spain, Switzerland, and United Arab Emirates,” said Peter DeSantis, Senior Vice President of Global Infrastructure, AWS. “The new region is a continuation of our investment to support enterprises of all kinds, help startups scale and grow, enable technical skills development, and create cloud literacy. Cloud technology is at the heart of the Israeli government’s digital transformation program, and their approach highlights the importance of setting a strong course for cloud adoption and leading by example to re-invent citizen services.”
Bank Leumi, Migdal Insurance, Cyberark and Fiverr are among some of the partners of AWS in Israel.
