Amazon Web Services (AWS) made its serverless compute engine Fargate available in its Asia-Pacific (Jakarta) cloud region.
AWS Fargate is designed to allow organizations to deploy and manage containerized applications without having to manage the underlying infrastructure.
AWS says the service makes it easier for users to scale applications and can help improve security by isolating applications by design.
The cloud giant also noted that customers can deploy disruption-tolerant apps on Fargate Spot to get up to 70% off Fargate prices.
As of January 11, local users can now run Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) orchestrated applications using the Fargate launch type in the Asia Pacific (Jakarta) region.
Please note that AWS Fargate support for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), AWS Graviton2 processors, and Amazon ECS Windows containers is currently not available in the Asia Pacific (Jakarta) region.
In December last year, the cloud provider announced the opening of two new Direct Connect locations in the Indonesian capital.
AWS Direct Connect enables businesses to create private connections between AWS and their own data center, office, or colocation environment.
The local launch of the two new sites came just after the official launch of the Asia-Pacific region (Jakarta) on December 14, 2021.
Along with the new region, the cloud giant said it also plans to invest around US $ 5 billion (Rs 71.7 trillion) in Indonesia over the next 15 years through the new infrastructure region.
“I am delighted to share that the AWS Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Region is now live,” AWS ASEAN Managing Director Conor McNamara said in a social media post at the time. “Not only are we bringing our services closer to our Indonesian customers, but we will also invest US $ 5 billion in Indonesia over the next 15 years.
“This is part of our deep and long-term commitment to the country since the establishment of our local office in 2018, as we continue to support our rapidly growing customer base across Indonesia and help accelerate the digital economy of the country. country.
“We will also continue to work with the Indonesian government and other relevant agencies to invest in cloud skills improvement initiatives, as we believe that a skilled and future-ready workforce can help. to stimulate the country’s economic growth, “he added.
