AWS Global Infrastructure Benefits

AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure, the core architectural foundation of AWS, helps provide many benefits to AWS services and deployed applications, such as security, availability, performance, scalability, and more.

This post will discuss the security, availability, performance, and scalability benefits that AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure provides.

Security

First, let’s start with the security benefit of the AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure.

  • Security starts from the AWS core infrastructure, and it is custom-built for the cloud in the platform.
  • Security is designed to meet the most stringent security requirements in the world. For example, the infrastructure monitors 24/7 to help ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of AWS customers’ data.
  • All data flowing through the AWS global network that interconnects Availability Zones and Regions are encrypted at the physical level before leaving the AWS secured network.
  • Encryption at the physical level is possible because AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure has the ability to control your data which is the ability to encrypt, move, and manage retention at any time.

Availability

Next, discuss another benefit which is availability.

  • AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure helps deliver very high availability.
  • Each region is fully isolated and comprises multiple AZ’s which are fully isolated partitions of the infrastructure.
  • To isolate any issue and achieve high availability, you can leverage multiple AZs within a Region to partition your application.

Performance

Next, let's discuss the performance benefit of AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure.

  • The AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure is built for performance. 
  • The AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure is built using a fully redundant fiber network of 100 Gig Ethernet. This helps AWS Regions to provide low latency and have low packet loss. As a result, it helps provide overall high network quality in AWS Regions.
  • AWS Local Zones, AWS Wavelength, and telco providers help provide single-digit millisecond latencies closer to end-users and 5 G-connected devices.
  • AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure helps spin up resources quickly whenever you need them. For example, you can deploy hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes.

Scalability

Finally, let’s discuss the scalability benefit of the AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure.

  • Companies can take advantage of the conceptually infinite scalability of the AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure.
  • In a traditional IT infrastructure setup, customers over-provision to ensure that they had enough capacity to handle their business operations at peak level.
  • With the AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure, they don’t need to over-provision it. Instead, they need to launch the resources they actually need to scale up and scale down easily with a few configurations. This helps reduce costs significantly.
  • AWS Global Cloud Infrastructure helps spin up resources quickly whenever you need them. For example, you can deploy hundreds or thousands of servers in a minute.
