  • User

    A user is created in IAM using an account to use cloud services. Each user has its own identity credentials (password and access keys).

  • Region

    A region is a physical location where cloud resources are deployed. Availability zones (AZs) in the same region can communicate with each other over an intranet but AZs in different regions cannot communicate with each other. Deploying cloud resources in different regions can better suit certain user requirements or comply with local laws or regulations.

  • Availability Zone (AZ)

    AZs are physically isolated locations in a region, but are interconnected through an internal network for enhanced application availability.
