Bexprt celebrates new AWS Saudi Arabia Region announcement

Bexprt celebrates the new AWS Saudi Arabia Region. What does that mean for the Saudi market? Mo Hamdy, Bexprt Founder & CEO shares his thoughts on this, and updates on Bexprt’s support for AWS Outposts.

At LEAP in Riyadh today Bexprt celebrated the AWS announcement of a new Saudi Arabia Region launch. In a very significant move for cloud capabilities in the region, AWS’ announcement today will deliver lower latency, higher throughput and data sovereignty for AWS customers, and is especially important for organizations handling very sensitive personal or financial data to comply with local residency regulations.

“This massive strategic investment from AWS will bring considerable benefits to both commercial and public sectors in the Kingdom, our clients, particularly to those in the telecom, financial services and Public Sectors. This bold move from AWS is strategically important to all organizations in the Kingdom using, or considering using AWS. I’m excited, that as the leading AWS Partner in Saudi Arabia, Bexprt will enable AWS customers to benefit from the new AWS Region when it goes live, and support AWS Outposts adoption before then.”

The new AWS Saudi Arabia Region – with a long-term investment by AWS of $5.3 billion dollar – will create hundreds of local jobs in Riyadh.

Before then, AWS Outposts (check out the AWS | Bexprt eBook to discover more) will enable clients to have AWS infrastructure and services on-premises, as an AWS fully managed service, for a truly consistent hybrid experience. Fully configurable to meet the client’s exacting capacity and security demands, AWS Outposts also supports migration to the AWS Region as soon as available.

The Bexprt team is exhibiting at LEAP for the second year running, with AWS in Hall 1A C60 and the UK Pavilion in Hall 2 G30.
