This area could have three Availability Zones and can give AWS prospects in New Zealand the flexibility to run workloads and retailer information that should stay in-country.
There are 81 Availability Zones inside 25 AWS Areas in operation at the moment, with 24 extra Availability Zones and eight introduced areas (together with this one) underway.
Every of the Availability Zones shall be bodily unbiased of the others in area, shut sufficient to help functions that want low latency, but sufficiently distant to considerably cut back the chance that an AZ-level occasion will have an effect on enterprise continuity. The AZs on this area shall be related collectively through high-bandwidth, low-latency community connections over devoted, totally redundant fiber. This connectivity helps functions that want synchronous replication between AZs for availability or redundancy; you may take a peek on the AWS International Infrastructure web page to study extra about how we design and construct areas and AZs.
