AWS to open Spain data centre region in mid-2022, create 1,300 jobs

Tuesday 8 June 2021 | 09:39 CET | News
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has brought forward the planned launch of its new Spanish data centre region by around 6 months to the middle of 2022 in view of the high demand among its growing customer base in the Iberian peninsula, reports Europa Press, citing AWS Spain and Portugal director Miguel Alava. "The construction is going very well and as a result the AWS Region will open earlier than planned in mid-2022," said Alava, adding that the new infrastructure "will allow companies and organizations with data residency requirements to safely store their content in Spain."
