Totalplay, a telecoms firm owned by Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas, will provide consulting for AWS’ cloud services
Amazon.com Inc’s cloud unit Amazon Web Services Mexico (AWS) will boost bandwidth for its clients by opening a local hub in the first quarter of 2023, the cloud computing unit’s director for Mexico Luis Velasco said on Wednesday.
To increase bandwidth for purposes such as streaming video, the hub would put computing, storage, database and other services closer to large populations and IT centers, he said on the sidelines of the AWS tech conference.
To run applications for real-time gaming, hybrid migrations, media and entertainment content creation, and engineering simulations, the hub uses infrastructure deployment called “local zones”.
Also in the first three months of 2023, AWS Mexico will also open new offices in Guadalajara and Monterrey Velasco said. To boost its activities in the country, it is building alliances with local companies.
Totalplay, a telecoms firm owned by Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas, will provide consulting for AWS’ cloud services, said Fernando Zamora, Totalplay’s director of products and marketing, at the conference.
Totalplay will pair up with AWS to boost its presence in the Mexican cloud market, which Zamora said could grow to $2.7 billion in 2025 from $1.4 billion in 2021.
Following the United States, Canada and Brazil, Mexico is the fourth most important cloud market in the Americas, he added.
