  • AWS Regions are geographically distinct locations, where the services are offered
  • A Region has atleast two Availability Zones (AZ)
  • Every region is physically isolated from and independent of every other region in terms of Location, Power, Water supply etc.
  • US-East is the largest Region in AWS Global Infrastructure map.

  • Not all services are available in all regions
  • US-East-1 is the region where one can see all one’s billing information
