Salesforce’s global infrastructure expansion on Amazon Web Services is coming to the AWS Sydney Region later in the year, the CRM giant announced this morning.

The cloud customer relationship management company selected AWS as its preferred public cloud infrastructure provider in May last year as part of its international infrastructure expansion strategy.

“In our last quarter, APAC was the fastest-growing region for Salesforce, and we’re excited to expand our infrastructure footprint to support our rapidly growing customer base in Australia. By leveraging the AWS Cloud, we will be able to deliver the secure, reliable and trusted services of our Intelligent Customer Success Platform locally,” said Mark Innes, general manager of Salesforce Asia Pacific, at the Salesforce World Tour conference in Sydney this morning.

Salesforce’s core services, including Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, App Cloud, Community Cloud and Analytics Cloud will be available on AWS locally, to better support customers the company said.

“With Salesforce available in the Sydney Region, AWS and Salesforce can now help Australian customers to fully leverage the security, and reliability of the AWS Cloud as they scale and transform,” said Paul Migliorini, managing director, AWS Australia and New Zealand.
