and connection from hk to sg isn't exactly great either.
And in Reply to Google and AWS coming, they have been preannoucned and later postponed or canceled. So until they are actually up I am not putting too much faith into it. AWS wanted to set up in HK long time ago and due to whatever reason never started. Google purchased land in HK 5 years ago for building DC and later ( I think ) sold it off.
OVH came to HK in hope to establish its Asia DC, and due to some insane stupidity this is now in Singapore. Cloudflare could have had the Asia HQ in HK, and now it is in Singapore again. The point is, literally every single one turn to HK first and was hoping to start and do great here. HK lets them down every single time.

Don't we all? It's called teleportation.
Just means there are separate sets of power, networking etc.
AFAIK regions are physically separated, zones are isolated from each other in the same region.
Also, connectivity within APAC is generally not great, you really want to avoid those round-trips to Tokyo or the US if you can.

How was that intellectually stimulating or worthy of discussion among IT people or ‘hacker’ in general, seriously? Can’t interested people do a 30-second Google search instead?
And they are launching in Hong Kong this year: https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/in-the-works-aws-region-in-...
