Low-latency computing with AWS Local Zones – Part 1 : idk.dev
AWS Local Zones, a new type of AWS infrastructure deployment that places compute, storage, and other select services closer to large cities. We designed Local Zones as a powerful construct that extends our existing Regions into new locations. This gives you the ability to run applications on AWS that require single-digit millisecond latencies to your end-users or on-premises installations in the local area. Just like Regions, Local Zones are fully managed and supported by AWS, giving you the elasticity, scalability, and security benefits of running on the AWS. The first Local Zone is generally available in LA, and is an extension of the US West (Oregon) Region (the parent Region).
