In the recently held 'AWS Reinvent 2022', the company made a commitment to offering its customers the most advanced set of sovereignty features and controls available in the cloud.

Puneet Chandok, President, Commercial Business, AWS India, and South Asia, AISPL, told IANS that the launch of AWS Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) region and AWS Asia Pacific (Mumbai) region would enable its customers to store data securely within India and enjoy a lower latency experience.
