How to Activate the Jakarta Region Zone on AWS


1

This article discusses how to activate the Jakarta Zone Region on AWS, where this month (December 2021) AWS released a new Zone Region specifically for the Asian region, namely Indonesia, where the data center is located in Jakarta. The author hopes that he can increase productivity in activities related to digital systems such as applications, servers, and others without using CDN services anymore.

For the price or estimate for each AWS Cloud Computing service specifically for the Asia Pacific Jakarta (ap-southeast-3) Zone, the author still has not found a price list or estimate listed in it. Perhaps, you can look for these prices on the official AWS website regarding prices or estimates for each AWS Cloud Computing service specifically for the Asia Pacific Jakarta Zone Region (ap-southeast-3).

The author provides a tutorial for activating the Jakarta Zone Region on AWS Cloud Computing so that the data center can be used to build a project or technology-based system using the service as needed.

STEPS

1. Visit the site AWS.

2. Click Sign In to Console.

3. Enter IAM or email and password correctly.

4. Click Zone Region >>> Choose Zone Region Asia Pacific Jakarta (ap-southeast-3).

5. Click Continue.

6. Click Enable on Action in the Asia Pacific (Jakarta) column to activate the Jakarta Region Zone as a data center.

7. Click Enable Region.

8. The following is the result that the Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Region Zone has been enabled (enabled). So, you can use AWS Cloud Computing services that are currently available in the Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Region Zone.

9. Return to the AWS Console Dashboard.

10. Click Zone Region >>> Choose the Jakarta Asia Pacific Region Zone (ap-southeast-3).

11. Here’s the final result. You can explore the AWS Cloud Computing services provided in the Asia Pacific Jakarta Zone Region (ap-southeast-3) to support building technology-based projects with Cloud Computing.

Finished.

NOTES :

If you want to build a VPS using Amazon Lightsail, it’s not currently available in the Asia Pacific Jakarta Zone Region (ap-southeast-3). Alternatively, you can use Amazon EC2 to build your own VPS temporarily until more information is available in the future.

CLOSING

In the next few days, you can build your own server using AWS Cloud Computing whose data center comes from Indonesia so that it can be faster in terms of data transfer speed between the client and the server. For now, there are not as many AWS Cloud Computing service providers for the Asia Pacific Jakarta (ap-southeast-3) Zone Region as for the Singapore Asia Pacific (ap-southeast-1) Zone Region.

This happened because AWS had just opened a data center for the Jakarta Asia Pacific Zone recently. There is a possibility that AWS Cloud Computing services specifically for the Asia Pacific Jakarta Zone will be added in the near future.
