On Monday, Amazon Web Services stated it was establishing 500 jobs for German laborers in Germany. In addition, it was also opening a new office in Munich that will showcase what cloud computing can do for prospective clients in Europe’s largest economy.
AWS stopped having an interest in the technology that runs Amazon.com, e-commerce platform.
It is also gaining scale in Germany after adopting concerns about privacy that led many manufacturing organizations to keep their servers on-site.
The general manager of AWS in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, Klaus Buerg, said, “Those clients have overcome those compliance and security constraints and are now in catch-up mode.”
In a news report interview, he also added, “because of that kind of constraint, habit and behavior in the past, they are now working more like a fast follower than a front runner.”
Meanwhile, AWS has obtained a cloud computing security accreditation. It was from Germany’s cyber-security authority.
The security accreditation provided guarantees of the reliability of data even when held on remote servers outside the country.
AWS is also forming a Digital Builders showroom at its Munich office.
The display area is in partnership with Boston Consulting Group, which will present hands-on opportunities to validate applications to potential clients.
Together with Siemens, it is in preparation of an Industrial Software platform. This is to illustrate how cloud computing can boost manufacturing automation.
The new jobs at AWS are part of 2,800 already declared in Germany by Amazon.
Meanwhile, Buerg indicated it would also be spread out across its operations and research units in Germany.
