At Four-site Security and redundancy are our number one priority
At Four-site we believe that security and redundancy are our number one priority as a cloud service provider. "Service when you want it how you want it" That's why cloud service providers should only utilize the latest in Data center technology and redundancy, therefore utilizing the worlds leading provider of elastic cloud storage and compute was the only logical choice. Amazon provides us with tier 1 redundancy, resilience and peace of mind in the ever changing world of Virtualization.
AWS Global Infrastructure
The AWS Cloud operates 33 Availability Zones within 12 geographic Regions around the world, with 11 more Availability Zones and 5 more Regions coming online throughout the next year.
AWS Regions and Availability Zones
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 centers, each with redundant power, networking and connectivity, housed in separate facilities. These Availability Zones offer you the ability to operate production applications and databases which are more highly available, fault tolerant and scalable than would be possible from a single data center. The AWS Cloud operates 33 Availability Zones within 12 geographic Regions around the world.
High Availability Through Multiple Availability Zones
Unlike virtually every other technology infrastructure provider, each AWS Region has multiple Availability Zones and data centers. As we’ve learned from running the leading cloud infrastructure technology platform since 2006, customers who care about the availability and performance of their applications want to deploy these applications across multiple Availability Zones in the same region for fault tolerance and low latency. Availability Zones are connected to each other with fast, private fiber-optic networking, enabling you to easily architect applications that automatically fail-over between Availability Zones without interruption.
Improving Continuity With Replication Between Regions
In addition to replicating applications and data across multiple data centers in the same Region using Availability Zones, you can also choose to increase redundancy and fault tolerance further by replicating data between geographic Regions. You can do so using both private, high speed networking and public internet connections to provide an additional layer of business continuity, or to provide low latency access across the globe.
Meeting Compliance and Data Residency Requirements
You retain complete control and ownership over the region in which your data is physically located, making it easy to meet regional compliance and data residency requirements.
Throughout the next year, the AWS Global Infrastructure will expand with at least 11 new Availability Zones in new geographic Regions: India, Montreal in Canada, Ningxia in China, Ohio in North America, and the United Kingdom.
AWS is a secure, durable technology platform with industry-recognized certifications and audits: PCI DSS Level 1, ISO 27001, FISMA Moderate, FedRAMP, HIPAA, and SOC 1 (formerly referred to as SAS 70 and/or SSAE 16) and SOC 2 audit reports. Our services and data centers have multiple layers of operational and physical security to ensure the integrity and safety of your data
