Amazon Declares Presence In Nigeria With AWS Outposts

With the introduction of “AWS Outposts,” an infrastructure service that enables users to locally host, run, manage their workload, and link with Amazon’s cloud service offerings, Amazon Web Services is making what might be considered the first declaration of its presence in Nigeria.

According to a statement sent to BusinessDay by Amazon, the infrastructure consists of fully-managed, fully-configurable computers and storage racks made with hardware created by AWS. These, according to AWS, enable its clients to execute AWS services on-premises, including computation, storage, and databases, while syncing with AWS’s extensive range of cloud services.

Amorite Abdella, general manager of AWS Sub-Saharan Africa, stated that customers in Nigeria who have workloads that need low latency, data processing, or data storage on-premises can benefit from AWS Outposts. As we strive to provide cutting-edge cloud services to satisfy the business needs of AWS clients, we are thrilled to bring the AWS Outposts rack to Nigeria.

In addition, according to Abdella, these workloads may require applications to respond in almost real-time, interact with other on-premises systems, or operatemachineriess like factory floor equipment, health management systems, and retail point-of-sale systems. Customers can securely store and use customer data in Nigeria using the AWS Outposts rack, which is crucial for businesses in tightly regulated sectors and data sovereignty requirements.

According to the announcement, the AWS Outposts rack offers AWS operational patterns and architecture to data centers, colocation facilities, and on-premises facilities. Customers can give a consistent experience by using the same hardware, tools, control panel, APIs, and hardware on-premises, as in the AWS Regions with AWS Outposts rack.

One of the indigenous companies using AWS services to provide what it calls potent B2B payments and growth tools for thousands of Africa’s most ambitious enterprises is Paystack, a Nigerian fintech. “We have been able to extend our operations and transaction volumes dramatically thanks to AWS’ dependability. Ezra Olubi, co-founder and CTO of Paystack, expressed excitement about the introduction of AWS Outposts Rack in Nigeria, which brings cloud-scale technologies and services to Nigeria’s IT industry.

Another local business using the service is 54Gene, a health technology company. They built their Genomics Infrastructure & Insights Ecosystem (GENIISYSTM) platform on AWS, allowing them to gather and analyze various datasets to make scientific discoveries. “With the help of AWS, we have been able to implement new digital services more quickly than we could have in the past. The DNA of 54Gene includes constant innovation. We are now able to expand and operate AWS services on-site thanks to the debut of the AWS Outposts rack in Nigeria. According to Francis Osifo, vice president of 54Gene, we are overjoyed by this.

Customers can create and operate apps using the same programming APIs as in AWS Regions utilizing the AWS Outposts rack. Customers can select from a variety of generic Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances, as well as instances with and without local storage choices, that are optimized for computing, memory, storage, and graphics.

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) on Outposts and Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) capacity options are additional options. Then, clients can run a variety of AWS services locally, such as Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), and Amazon EMR, as well as connect directly to regional services like Amazon CloudWatch and Amazon DynamoDB through public or private connections.

Amazon claims that for more than 15 years, its AWS service has been the most complete and widely used cloud solution in the world, even though it is better recognized for its eCommerce platform. With more than 200 fully featured services for computing, storage, databases, networking, analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), mobile, security, hybrid, virtual, and augmented reality (VR and AR), media, and application development, deployment, and management, according to AWS, it can support virtually any cloud workload.

Businesses and governments alike utilize AWS, which operates in several parts of the world too, as it states, “power their infrastructure, become more agile, and decrease costs.”
