Telefónica Business Solutions (TBS) is introducing support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) in three markets in Latin America by end‑2019, according to reports.

Cinco Días reported that TBS intends to introduce AWS cloud computing services in Argentina, Brazil, and Peru. The IT solutions unit added AWS to its portfolio in May 2018 as a key element of its strategy to encourage enterprise customers towards a cloud services environment. It currently offers the service in Spain (Telefónicawatch, #127).

Telefónica is named as an Advanced Consulting Partner on the AWS Partner Network website, and listed locations including Brazil (São Paulo), Peru (Lima), and Spain (Madrid). Cinco Días added that around 300 Telefónica employees are being trained as AWS specialists, with 100 already certified.
