Join Brian Eiler for an in-depth discussion in this video Global infrastructure overview, part of Amazon Web Services: Implementing and Troubleshooting IaaS Products.
- [Instructor] In this module, we will discuss the AWS global infrastructure and how the AWS Regions and Availability Zones will impact your cloud workloads. AWS is divided up into Regions, which are then divided up into Availability Zones. The services in AWS are hosted in highly protected and fault-tolerant data centers around the world. So, for example, here we have some services that we'll, say, put into a data center. Now, these data centers are grouped together to create what are known as Availability Zones.
We'll talk a lot more in detail about those coming up. Each one of the Availability Zones represents a fault domain or an area that all tends to share one or more single points of failure, but the Availability Zones themselves should not be able to fail together, at least not as a result of a single component breaking. These Availability Zones are then grouped together in what Amazon calls a Region. The Regions are based on both the proximity of the Availability Zones to one another, as well the geopolitical location of the Availability Zones.
Here's an instance of the global footprint of AWS. You can see the number of Regions around the world, highlighted in orange. They have a number inside that indicates the number of Availability Zones present, at least right now. There's also green circles that indicate locations where there will be future Regions and Availability Zones that Amazon intends to implement over time.
