Amazon Web Services (AWS) has 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 through application isolation by design.
The cloud giant also noted that customers can deploy interrupt-tolerant applications on Fargate Spot to get up to 70% off Fargate prices.
Starting January 11, on-premises users can now run applications orchestrated by Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) 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 not currently 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 allows companies to create private connections between AWS and their own data center, office, or colocation environment. The local launch of the two new sites followed the official launch of the Asia-Pacific (Jakarta) region on December 14, 2021.
Along with the new region, the cloud giant said it also plans to invest around US$5 billion (71.7 trillion rupees) 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 General Manager 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 be investing US$5 billion in Indonesia over the next 15 years.
“This is part of our deep and long-term commitment to the country since establishing our local office in 2018, as we continue to support our rapidly growing customer base across Indonesia and help accelerate the digital economy. from the country.
“We will also continue to work with the Indonesian government and other relevant agencies to invest in cloud skills enhancement initiatives, as we believe that a skilled and future-ready workforce can contribute. boost the country’s economic growth,” he added.
