AWS's investment to create a cloud region in Saudi Arabia is a win-win situation. A local datacenter is essential for data residency, which is especially important for more regulated industries. Having several hyperscalers in the kingdom will be beneficial from pricing perspective owing to increased competition. Global AWS partners will have better access to local markets and a new market entry opportunity; AWS datacenters in the kingdom will help partners to build deep industry-specific solutions locally." — Senior Research Analyst Nitesh Rathi, IDC MEA
