Amazon Web Services (AWS) continues to invest in Hungary to support a growing number of AWS customers and partners moving to the cloud.
In June 2023, AWS opened its first office in Budapest as part of its ongoing investment in Central Eastern Europe. The hyperscaler’s new office space will help teams better support organizations of all sizes in Hungary, including start-ups, enterprises and public sector organizations, as they make the transition to the AWS Cloud.
“After seeing increased customer adoption of AWS, we decided to open an office in Budapest to support customers who are looking to use AWS to innovate and lower their information technology costs, and grow their organizations in the cloud,” said AWS Central and Eastern Europe General Manager Przemek Szuder. “We look forward to helping even more organizations accelerate their digital transformations and deliver innovative new products and services to Hungarian customers and citizens.”
The expansion follows the launch of an AWS edge location in Budapest in January 2020. With the edge location, AWS provides its Hungarian customers with advanced technologies such as Amazon CloudFront, a content delivery network service; AWS Shield, which safeguards applications running on AWS; and AWS WAF, which protects web applications from common exploits.
The AWS edge location connects Hungary to the AWS global infrastructure network, improving the secure delivery of content to customers in Hungary by more than 50%.
