Hyderabad: Amazon Web Services (AWS) will invest Rs 20,761 crore to set up multiple data centres in Hyderabad, the Telangana government announced on Friday.
Telangana’s Minister for Information Technology and Industry K.T. Rama Rao said this would be the largest foreign direct investment in the history of Telangana.
AWS will set up Asia Pacific (Hyderabad) Region with three Availability Zones (AZs). It is expected to start operations by mid of 2022.
The AZs consist of multiple data centres in separate distinct locations within a single region that are engineered to be operationally independent of one another with independent power, cooling, physical security, and connections via a low-latency network.
Rama Rao said the investment from AWS would position Telangana as one of the preferred destinations for other companies that are looking to set up data centres in the future.
“This investment from AWS is going to be the largest FDI that the state has attracted since the inception and will act as a strong anchor for attracting other technology investments,” he said
