Today, AWS released an updated resource — AWS Policy Perspectives-Data Residency — to provide an additional option for you if you need to store and process your data on premises. This white paper update discusses AWS Outposts, which offers a hybrid solution for customers that might find that certain workloads are better suited for on-premises management — whether for lower latency or other local processing needs.

Until this capability, you’d select the nearest AWS region to keep data closer in proximity. By extending AWS infrastructure and services to your environments, you can support workloads — including sensitive workloads — that need to remain on-premises while leveraging the security and operational capabilities of AWS cloud services.

Read the updated whitepaper to learn why data residency doesn’t mean better data security, and to learn about an additional option available for you to address various data protection needs, including data localization.
