In this blog, we would like to introduce you to the AWS China Gateway.
With the passage of time, new tricks have been introduced in the markets in different geographical locations. Basically, AWS (Amazon Web Services) is the world’s most adopted public cloud platform that helps millions of customers around the globe. In the worldwide business, China has a great significance in various fields. New and growing businesses in China want to know how they can improve their efficiency in business. Back in 2014 AWS has first launched AWS China and made China the first country outside of the United States to have more than one region equipped with multiple availability zones. AWS China has now two regions with five availability zones. In Beijing, there are two availability zones while on the other hand, Ningxia has three availability zones.
AWS China regions
In China there are different regulatory frameworks operating the cloud environment and they have different taxing and accounting. They have selected two partners to help AWS to deliver services within China namely Sinnet and NWCD. Sinnet operating the Beijing region and NWCD operating the Ningxia region. The AWS China Gateway has a vital role to eliminate stratification, people however are in dire need to provide a platform to grow their business in China. Beijing and Ningxia are just two regions in China where AWS provides its best experience for customers and applications to customers inside China. Although Beijing and Ningxia are two different regions, the data center has been designed in exactly the same manner that’s why they both have the same standard, quality, and design. In order to meet the China regularity environment, AWS works with local partners to provide services. Sinnet and NWCD are two partners to operate the services more reliable and long term. Especially AWS provides technology, guidance, and expertise to Sinnet and NWCD. Comparatively, Sinnet is the largest hosting company in china.
AWS China Gateway
AWS China Gateway has introduced several ways to help customers in China to understand these particular services to proactively share the information with customers. AWS China Gateway aims to provide a one-stop service to customers outside of China to leverage the AWS China regions. The most interesting thing is that in order to entertain the customers, in particular, the AWS China Gateway gives direct access to their customers to the AWS team in China in various ways. The main purpose of establishing the customer services and technical support team is to get in touch with customers for account registration, FAQs filings, customers’ references, and technical documents. For a successful operation and to expand AWS in china there is an operational team in place to help and manage. Likewise, they provide training programs through their own trainers and training partners. They not only provide the full scope of it but they also pay attention to educate students in the market. So far they have trained 80 thousand students to get sufficient talent to understand AWS for the purpose of expanding business and help them to continue the invest resources in China. So far AWS has supported over 4 thousand startups by organizing various programs and sessions where they invite experts to meet startups. And they also provide opportunities to allow startups to promote solutions in a better way and its practical implementations.
Furthermore, it is crystal clear that every person around the globe needs a precise platform and opportunity to unfold his or her hidden and innovative talent in any field. It would not be wrong if we say AWS China brought revolution among business communities of Beijing and Ningxia on a very large scale. However, the AWS China Gateway offers startup opportunities and leads customers to the peak of success, this process does not only give chance to an individual to transform their business but it also provides an atmosphere for all business communities to interact socially through their innovative ideas in the business field. People having less knowledge and a lack of awareness may have misunderstandings to grow their businesses in China. Thus, this gap can be brought to an end through the best business-related experience or any step that can let people unlock innovation and success.
China’s legal and regulatory requirements
As for as security and compliance are a concern, they are apprehension with ICP (internet content provider) for registration procedure because the company needs a complete ICP filing process which requires the customer to provide information about the owner of the website, domain name, IP address, content and security contact person to protect customers. So the customer is much more conscious to get rid of violation by publishing documents without the ICP process. So the customers don’t publish websites without completing the ICP process. These extra steps are taken to protect the customers from the violations of the regulations in China. It’s a necessary process to complete regardless of using AWS or hosting your own website or any other way. Only a valid Chinese business license will give you access to the AWS China account. Apart from that, there is an easy procedure of other applications to the AWS China regions and the data can easily be copied into the AWS China regions.
In short, AWS China is a very good choice to unblock the Chinese market from a technical and a business prospective. AWS is the largest cloud service provider in the world and the most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, used by millions of customers.
