Amazon EMR Serverless is in preview release and is subject to change. To use EMR Serverless in preview, follow the sign up steps at https://pages.awscloud.com/EMR-Serverless-Preview.html. The only Region that EMR Serverless currently supports is us-east-1, so make sure to set all region parameters to this value. All Amazon S3 buckets used with EMR Serverless must also be created in us-east-1.

Resilience in Amazon EMR Serverless

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, Amazon EMR Serverless offers integration with Amazon S3 through EMRFS to help support your data resiliency and backup needs.
