And just like an electricity grid, where you would not wire every factory to the same power station, the AWS infrastructure is global, with multiple regions around the globe from which services are available. This means you have control over things like where you applications run, where you data is stored, and where best to serve your customers from.
Each AWS region is also split into Availability Zones, making highly available applications possible from within a region.
Let's take a quick look at what that means with a tangible example. Here, two commands are issued against AWS to create servers, or EC2 instances, in two zones in the EU. We're creating 8 instances of differing sizes, running geopgrahically distinct for availability purposes, all from 2 simple commands. Once booted, in a matter of a minute or two, those server instances are available to you to run your own applications on. Amazon has done the heavy lifting for you, so you can focus on using the compute resources available to you.
