Amazon AWS cloud computing plans to invest 2.5 billion euros in Spain

Amazon announced that it will invest 2.5 billion euros in Spain over the next 10 years, which will support 1,300 full-time jobs in the country. In addition to accelerating digital transformation and creating a local technical community, this investment will potentially add 1.8 billion euros to Spain's GDP.


Cloud computing refers to the on-demand provision of IT resources over the Internet. This eliminates the need to buy, own or maintain any physical data centers and servers. Therefore, users can obtain technical services, such as storage, database, etc., from service providers as needed.


Currently, Amazon's cloud computing division - AWS (Amazon Web Services) accounts for the largest share of cloud platforms adopted globally. It was followed by Microsoft (Azure) and Google (Google Cloud Platform).


Amazon claims that the expansion of its cloud computing services in Spain will drive innovation and give businesses greater choice in running applications and serving end users from data centers located in the region.


Amazon AWS cloud services span 93 availability zones in 29 geographic regions around the world. The company has announced plans to add 18 Availability Zones and six AWS Regions in Australia, Canada, India, Israel, New Zealand, and Thailand.
