AWS Availability Zones

An availability zone is a logical data center in a region available for use by any AWS customer.

Availability zones (AZs) are isolated locations within data center regions from which public cloud services originate and operate.

Each AZ is isolated, but the AZs in a region are connected through low-latency links.

We design our solutions to span across multiple Availability Zones so if one instance fails, an instance in another Availability Zone can handle requests.

You can also use Elastic IP addresses to mask the failure of an instance in one Availability Zone by rapidly remapping the address to an instance in another Availability Zone.

An Availability Zone is represented by a region code followed by a letter identifier; for example, us-east-1a. To ensure that resources are distributed across the Availability Zones for a region, AWS independently maps Availability Zones to identifiers for each account.

For example, your Availability Zone us-east-1a might not be the same location as us-east-1a for another account.
