Resilient InfrastructureeBook: Global reliability for sites too big to fail
Enterprise customers achieve high availability by leveraging multiple availability zones in one region, which provide redundant physically isolated servers at each layer of the technology stack to ensure smooth failover without customer service interruptions. Optionally, hot standby sites in an alternate region are available to provide live failover capabilities for disaster recovery.
Scale resources up to meet predictable or unpredictable traffic spikes for any duration and return resources back to normal levels when traffic subsides. Pay only for the resources you need.
