The China (Beijing) Region is the first AWS Region located within China. AWS has partnered with Beijing Sinnet Technology Co., Ltd.(“Sinnet”) who is the service operator and provider for AWS China (Beijing) Region based out of Beijing and adjacent areas using AWS cloud technologies required to support AWS information technology services in China.
AWS is committed to providing Chinese software developers and enterprises with secure, flexible, reliable, and low-cost IT infrastructure resources to innovate and rapidly scale their businesses.
With the China (Beijing) Region operated by Sinnet, developers can easily and efficiently deploy cloud-based applications inside of China with the same APIs, protocols, and de-facto operating standards used by AWS customers around the world.
Like other AWS Regions, data or objects stored in the China (Beijing) Region remain exclusively in the Beijing Region unless moved to other locations by the customer. Customer data or metadata will not be moved between AWS Regions or outside of China.
Customers who wish to use AWS resources in China (Beijing) Region operated by Sinnet are required to create an AWS (China) Account, a set of credentials that are distinct and separate from other global AWS Accounts. Only customers with an AWS (China) Account will be able to use resources in the AWS China (Beijing) region operated by Sinnet. All customers who wish to use other global AWS regions outside of China will need to create a global AWS Account by visiting http://aws.amazon.com
