Let's see how Azure is able to provide it. Service is around the world.
Here is a map of fashion is global footprint.
It is available nationals website and you can check it regularly for updates.
Each blue dot on the map represents the so called region. A region is a geographical area with atleast one but sometimes multiple dated centers
actual controls. The resource is within the region to make sure they are appropriately balanced.
At the time of this recording, Asher had 48 of our border regions and six announced ones.
Two of the regions have not shown on the map because they are the US government, secret regions and in our in undisclosed locations.
When you create a new resource in natural, you may be required to select the region. Some service is all about, but only in certain regions. For example, not oh, virtual machine size is out of our bow in every region.
G series VM Sandoval bo in west US to West US in east US two regions, but not in the other U S regions.
They're also services that are global and do not require you to select a specific region. Examples are as your active directory as your traffic manager and azure D. N s.
One important thing to know is that they're certain limits of resource is that you can create within a region.
If you reach this limit, you need to create a support ticket to extend the limit or create resource is in another region where you have not reached the limit.
Some regions are special and you can use them for building applications that need to meet certain compliance of legal requirements.
You may also know be alone to deport those regions. If you don't meet those compliance requirements,
U. S government and the Bond Department of Defense regions are a viable for U. S government agencies and partners. They're operated by personnel with higher clearance and have additional certifications.
China regions that offered in partnership with third party provider and Microsoft does not maintain the data centers
German agents out of eye above a data trusty model
where the Data trustees doctor telecoms company called T systems. And this is the company that insures that the data reminds within Germany.
Why does actual need data centers in so many regions
for several reasons? First, it allows you to bring your application and data closer to your customers.
It also provides better scalability and redundancy. And last but not least, it preserves the data residency for your users and help you stay compliant with Walker requirements.
I shall divides the world in four. Geography is America's Europe, Asia Pacific and Middle Eastern Africa.
Geography is a discreet market with two or more reagents that preserves residency and compliance boundaries.
Why is there yet another subdivision of the world?
There's some legal and compliance reasons. There are two main reasons for using geography is they ensure that data residency in sovereignity requirements are home, not within the geographical boundaries
and therefore tolerant wisdom complete region failure.
Speaking about data residency, one typical example with GDP are which we talk about in the previous videos. The low requires data for European citizens to remind on European soil.
Each marshal region belongs to a single geography and has specific data. Residency compliance and service availability. Rule rules applied to it.
Another important thing to know about regions is that every region is paired with another region in the same geography.
This is called a region pair.
Region pairs are helpful when you think about business, continuing continuities and disaster recovery plans,
region pairs are directly connected and must be 300 miles away from each other.
This ensures that in the case of disaster, your work waltz will continue to run even if one of the region's is down.
Some service is offer automatic your ident on data replication using region pears.
Additional advantages of region pairs are that in the case of extensive Asher outage, one of the region's is prioritized to reduce the downtime. Also, planted dates are rolled out to regions. One of the time
data continues to recite within the same geography if disaster occurs.
Some example of regent bears are east US than West, US
North Europe in Ireland and West Europe in the Netherlands, East Asia and South Asia.
One exception to the rule is Brazil South that despaired with south Central us.
In the next video, we'll look what redundancy Ashur provides within a single region.
