Resilience in AWS CloudShell - AWS CloudShell

Resilience in AWS CloudShell

The AWS global infrastructure is built around AWS Regions and Availability Zones. AWS Regions provide multiple physically separated and isolated Availability Zones, which are connected with low-latency, high-throughput, and highly redundant networking. With Availability Zones, you can design and operate applications and databases that automatically fail over between zones without interruption. Availability Zones are more highly available, fault tolerant, and scalable than traditional single or multiple data center infrastructures.

For more information about AWS Regions and Availability Zones, see AWS Global Infrastructure.

In addition to the AWS global infrastructure, AWS CloudShell supports specific features to support your data resiliency and backup needs.

  • Commit files you create and add to AWS CodeCommit. This is a version control service hosted by Amazon Web Services that you can use to privately store and manage assets in the cloud. These assets can consist of documents, source code, and binary files. For more information, see Tutorial: Using CodeCommit in AWS CloudShell.

  • Use AWS CLI calls to specify files in your home directory in AWS CloudShell and add them as objects in Amazon S3 buckets. For an example, see the getting started tutorial.
