Amazon’s user survey hints AWS datacenter in India

Amazon sent me (I’m guessing to all AWS users from India) a survey to day afternoon which looked as below:

We sincerely appreciate your time and feedback.

Survey had questions to understand how critical it is to have physically closer datacenter, where our consumer base is mostly located, current datacenter which we are using, which payment method we are comfortable with .. etc. For me it pretty much sounded like they want to understand Indian users better before they open their datacenter here.

It would be a great news for Indian AWS users if Amazon opens it’s datacenter in India since it will give better latency and lot of other flexibilities than existing datacenters.
