Cloud security at AWS is the highest priority. As an AWS customer, you will benefit from a data center and network architecture built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organizations.
An advantage of the AWS cloud is that it allows customers to scale and innovate, while maintaining a secure environment. Customers pay only for the services they use, meaning that you can have the security you need, but without the upfront expenses, and at a lower cost than in an on-premises environment.

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.
Easy to set-up, world-class cloud features
AWS environments are continuously audited, with certifications from accreditation bodies across the globe. Spend less time on compliance and more time running your business.
