Amazon signed a deal in August 2016 to allow Chinese partner Sinnet operate the Amazon services provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS) in China.
"This move is mostly around regulatory compliance", said Charlie Dai, Beijing-based analyst at Forrester Research.
Sinnet has told customers it has been told by the government to close VPNw which circumvent the Great Firewall. AWS runs a separate hardware venture in collaboration with the Ningxia provincial government in China's northwest, according to Reuters.
However, like its peers, Amazon has found it hard making headway in China, which is dominated by local tech giants Alibaba and Tencent Holdings Ltd.

On Monday, Amazon shares closed up 0.34% at $1,129.17.
