Today, AWS China (Beijing) Region* has added a third Availability Zone (AZ) to support the high demand of our growing customer base. An Availability Zone (AZ) is one or more discrete data centers with redundant power, networking, and connectivity in an AWS Region. AZs give customers the ability to operate production applications and databases that are more highly available, fault tolerant, and scalable than would be possible from a single data center.

This launch brings AWS to total 81 Availability Zones across 25 geographic regions, with plans to launch 18 more Availability Zones and six more AWS Regions in Australia, India, Indonesia, Spain, Switzerland, and United Arab Emirates (UAE).

To learn more please visit the AWS Global Infrastructure website or our newly released blog.

*The operator and service provider for AWS China (Beijing) Region is Beijing Sinnet Technology Co., Ltd.
