How to serve S3 objects to local zone

0

I have a bucket in Sydney AWS S3 and I have enabled local zone Auckland. How do I make sure that users in Auckland / NZ are being served the Auckland local zone objects?

Does AWS do that automatically?

Zone name / Zone ID ap-southeast-2a apse2-az3 ap-southeast-2b apse2-az1 ap-southeast-2c apse2-az2 ap-southeast-2-akl-1a apse2-akl1-az1

You can see from this link, AWS Local Zones features, the Amazon S3 is not a service deployed into a local zone. Your applications and users can still reach the objects in Sydney, but it will be via a regional endpoint in that region, not the local zone. If you want to serve data from the Local Zone, you will need to use FSx or EBS. Another option is to front the S3 bucket in Sydney with a CloudFront distribution and it will be cached in edge locations in NZ.

As explained in this document, access to S3 is the same as in a normal region.
In other words, there is no need to make any special settings.

Access Regional Services AWS Local Zones allow you to seamlessly connect to the full range of services in the AWS Region such as Amazon S3 and DynamoDB through the same APIs and tool sets over AWS’s private and high bandwidth network backbone.
