AWS (Amazon Web Services) is a Cloud Provider . They provide you with servers and services that you can use on demand and scale easily. AWS has revolutionized IT over time. AWS powers some of the biggest websites in the world
Amazon Web Services is a remote computing service that gives us Cloud Computing Service with Unlimited Bandwidth and Customer Support. Now we use this Cloud Computing Service for our Website or Blog or mobile Apps API.
AWS is provided by data centers setup in availability zones (AZs) in different parts of the world to provide cloud services. AZ is a location representing a number of physical data centers while a region is a collection of many AZs
- AWS has Regions all around the world
- Names can be: us-east-1, eu-west-3…
- A region is a cluster of data centers
- Most AWS services are region-scoped
AWS Availability Zones
Each region has many availability zones (usually 3, min is 2, max is 6). Example:
- Each availability zone (AZ) is one or more discrete data centers with redundant power, networking, and connectivity
- They’re separate from each other, so that they’re isolated from disasters
- They’re connected with high bandwidth,ultra-low latency networking

Networking & Content Delivery
Amazon Route 53 effectively connects user requests to infrastructure running in AWS – such as Amazon EC2 instances, Elastic Load Balancing load balancers, or Amazon S3 buckets – and can also be used to route users to infrastructure outside of AWS.
Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery network (CDN) offered by Amazon Web Services. Content delivery networks provide a globally-distributed network of proxy servers which cache content, such as web videos or other bulky media, more locally to consumers, thus improving access speed for downloading the content.
