Amazon Web Services (AWS) is set to play a pivotal role in Japan’s artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud strategy, unveiling plans to invest a staggering 2.26 trillion yen ($15.3 billion) by 2027. The focus of this significant investment is the expansion of AWS’s cloud infrastructure in Osaka, aimed at accelerating the development and widespread adoption of AI and machine learning. Additionally, this move aligns with supporting enterprises in their digital transformation (DX) endeavors.

UK’s communications regulator, Ofcom, has initiated an in-depth examination of the market dominance by Amazon and Microsoft in the cloud infrastructure services space, a move raising concerns about market competition. The regulator has tasked the Competition and Markets Authority with evaluating potential challenges for consumers in switching cloud providers due to issues like high data transfer fees and technical barriers. The outcome of this audit could have potential implications for these tech giants and impact the future landscape of the cloud services domain.
