Amazon Web Services (AWS) on Tuesday said its second infrastructure region in Australia has been made available for customers.
The new region in Melbourne (codenamed: ap-southeast-4), which was first announced in December 2020, will consist of three availability zones.
Availability zones are the building blocks of an AWS region that place infrastructure in separate and distinct geographic locations.
AWS had launched its first infrastructure region in Sydney in 2012, which also has three availability zones.
Other than the two regions, Australia is home to seven Amazon CloudFront Edge locations in Australia, backed by a Regional Edge cache in Sydney. The company had launched an additional CloudFront point of presence (PoP) in Perth in 2018.
