Intro to AWS VPC

AWS VPC or Amazon Virtual Private Cloud is a service that enables customers to launch their AWS resources in a virtual network that is logically isolated from other networks in the AWS cloud, and in some cases, even from the internet.

When creating a VPC, customers can define their own IP address range, subnets, and route tables, and have full control over their virtual network topology. They can also configure security groups and network ACLs to control access to their resources, and use a variety of network connectivity options, such as virtual private network (VPN) or AWS Direct Connect, to securely connect their VPC to their on-premises data centers or other networks.

Intro to AWS Region

AWS Region is a physical location where AWS maintains multiple data centers that are interconnected by a low-latency network. Each region is a separate geographic area, identified by a unique name and code, such as us-east-1 or eu-west-2. AWS Regions are strategically located in different parts of the world to provide customers with a wide selection of geographic locations for hosting their resources, applications, and services.

Each AWS Region consists of two or more Availability Zones (AZs), which are physically separate data centers located within a single region. Each AZ is designed to be highly available and fault-tolerant, with independent power, cooling, and networking infrastructure.
