Man has since time immemorial, endeavoured and sought solutions to various issues that have plagued him from time to time. For instance, with the amount of data that is generated on a daily basis today, problems related to storage are bound to arise. But, modern man has proved his mettle yet again and come up with a wondrous solution to the problem of data storage - Amazon Web Server. A good storage network is extremely essential to have things running smoothly in a time when we are surrounded by data generated by various apps, devices and gadgets, and AWS provides for that. Amazon Web Server is a cloud computing platform that enables users to access on demand computing services such as database storage, virtual cloud server etc. It can also be defined as a collection of remote computing services that make up a cloud computing platform offered over the internet.
The AWS Cloud infrastructure is built around Regions and Availability Zones (“AZs”). A Region is a physical location in the world where we have multiple Availability Zones. Availability Zones consist of one or more discrete data centres, each with redundant power, networking and connectivity, housed in separate facilities. The AWS Cloud operates 44 Availability Zones within 16 geographic Regions around the world.
Thus, the network of AWS is spread across on to the entire globe and with its ocean-like vastness, it can consolidate any amount of data.
