Amazon Web Services said on Monday it was creating 500 jobs in Germany and opening a new office in Munich that will showcase what cloud computing can do for potential clients in Europe’s largest economy.
Axar.az reports citing Reuters that AWS, which grew out of the technology that runs Amazon’s (AMZN.O) e-commerce platform, is gaining scale in Germany after addressing concerns about privacy that led many manufacturing firms to keep their servers on-site.
“Those clients have overcome those compliance and security constraints and are now in catch-up mode,” said Klaus Buerg, general manager of AWS in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
The new jobs at AWS are part of 2,800 already announced in Germany by Amazon and will be dispersed across its operations and research units in Germany, said Buerg.
