Cloud services have become the bedrock for innovation and digital transformation. Amazon Web Services (AWS), a global leader in cloud computing, has taken a significant step towards bolstering its presence in Israel, a nation known for its cutting-edge tech ecosystem. With the launch of the AWS Israel Region in Tel Aviv, AWS is not only expanding its footprint but also facilitating groundbreaking advancements in cloud technology.

The launch of AWS Storage Gateway, a hybrid cloud storage service, has emerged as a game-changer for enterprises seeking seamless integration between their on-premises workloads and cloud resources. This innovative service empowers businesses to access virtually limitless cloud storage while maintaining data accessibility, security, and low latency. Whether it’s data backup, archiving, or providing on-premises applications with cloud data access, AWS Storage Gateway has proved to be a versatile solution.

The true beauty of AWS Storage Gateway lies in its ability to bridge the gap between on-premises infrastructure and cloud resources. It empowers businesses to harness the power of the cloud without compromising on existing systems, offering a perfect balance between legacy setups and modern cloud capabilities.

AWS’s investment in Israel’s technological landscape speaks volumes about the country’s position as an innovation hub. The newly launched AWS Israel (Tel Aviv) Region, equipped with three availability zones, enables businesses to harness advanced cloud technologies while benefiting from heightened security, scalability, and performance. This strategic move aligns perfectly with Israel’s focus on promoting technology innovation and fostering a thriving ecosystem for entrepreneurs and multinational corporations.

Prasad Kalyanaraman, Vice President of Infrastructure Services at AWS, emphasized, “Israel’s strategy to promote technology innovation, along with its abundance of talent, has created a thriving global hub for entrepreneurs, e-governments, and multinational businesses.” The AWS Israel Region stands as a testament to this synergy between AWS’s commitment to fostering innovation and Israel’s dedication to technological advancement.

AWS’s Economic Impact and Commitment to Israel

AWS’s investment in the AWS Israel Region goes beyond technological advancements. An AWS Economic Impact Study outlines the company’s plans to invest up to ILS 26.6 billion from 2023 through 2037, leading to an estimated contribution of ILS 51.7 billion to Israel’s GDP. This investment is projected to support over 7,700 full-time jobs annually, reinforcing AWS’s role in driving economic growth and job creation within the region.

Kalyanaraman reiterated, “Cloud technology is at the heart of any digital transformation program, and AWS is proud to support Israel’s efforts to enhance citizen services for many years to come.” This sentiment underscores AWS’s commitment to playing an integral role in Israel’s journey towards a tech-driven future.
