  • In our VPC, Amazon route 53 redirect traffic to respective Availability Zones based on the rules that we have given to redirect traffic to geo-based locations (i.e.; US traffic to US AZ’s and rest of the world to EU AZ’s)
  • Once request redirect from Rout 53 to Application ELB based on load on servers it will redirect to respective AZ’s (i.e.; Zone 1 or Zone 2) in respective regions.
