Introduction Customers use multi-region architecture to achieve application resiliency such as Active-Active or Disaster Recovery (DR). Depending on DR strategy, customers may need to have failover from one region to the next. DR strategies are covered off in detail in a prior AWS Blog. DR strategies include either an Active/Passive or Multi-Site Active/Active approaches. Active/Passive […]
We’ll start by outlining how AWS services provide reliability using control planes and data planes, then share high-level design principles for creating a failover mechanism. Finally, we’ll explain the features of Route 53 that make your DR approach more effective.
Using Amazon CloudFront and Amazon S3 to build multi-Region active-active geo proximity applications
In today’s digital-first business environment with a globally distributed customer base, it becomes important to adopt an architecture that helps customers deliver digital assets to end-users with the lowest possible latency based on the geo-proximity of assets to the end user. Companies with digital assets stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) commonly configure the traffic to be […]
This post guides you through setting up the networking layer for a multi-Region active-active application architecture on AWS using latency-based routing in Amazon Route 53 with Amazon CloudFront to deliver a low-latency, reliable experience for your users. Building active-active architectures using AWS networking services improves your application resiliency and performance. However, there can be cost and […]
