The high-availability architecture provided by the cloud computing platform can help users ensure the reliability and stability of services. In AWS and GCP, high availability architecture usually involves multiple availability zones (Availability Zones) or load balancer (Load Balancer) to ensure high availability of services.
- AWS Multi-AZ
AWS' Multi-AZ architecture leverages AWS's global infrastructure. AWS distributes data centers and servers across multiple locations around the world, each of which is an Availability Zone. Availability zones are connected by high-speed network. AWS users can deploy their applications and services in multiple Availability Zones, ensuring high availability of services.
In AWS, an Availability Zone is a logical concept. Each availability zone is an independent, physically isolated data center, but they are connected by a high-speed network. AWS' Multi-AZ architecture uses these Availability Zones to provide high availability and redundancy. In the event of a failure in one availability zone, applications and services can automatically failover to other availability zones, maintaining continuity and availability.
- GCP's load balancer
GCP's Load Balancer is a software-based load balancer that helps users deploy highly available applications and services in GCP. A load balancer can distribute traffic to multiple virtual machine instances and load balance traffic to multiple regions and availability zones. This helps ensure the availability and reliability of the service.
GCP's load balancer supports several load balancing algorithms such as round robin, least connections, and IP hashing. Load balancers also support advanced features such as SSL termination, content forwarding, and health checking. Users can use the GCP console or API to create and configure load balancers and associate them with their VM instances and services.

The following is an example using AWS Multi-AZ and GCP Load Balancer
exist GCP , users can use Cloud Deployment Manager to create load balancers and virtual machine instances. The following is a simple Cloud Deployment Manager Deployment file that creates a load balancer and two virtual machine instances. This file deploys VM instances in two different regions:
Server sample code demonstrating how to implement high availability in AWS and GCP.
In AWS, users can use CloudFormation templates to create network infrastructure in multiple availability zones. Below is a simple CloudFormation template for creating a VPC and two subnets. This template deploys subnets in two different availability zones:
Resources: Vpc: Type: AWS::EC2::VPC Properties: CidrBlock: "10.0.0.0/16" Subnet1: Type: AWS::EC2::Subnet Properties VpcId: !Ref Vpc CidrBlock: "10.0.1.0/24" AvailabilityZone: us-west-1a
Subnet2: Type: AWS::EC2::Subnet Properties: VpcId: !Ref Vpc CidrBlock: "10.0.2.0/24" AvailabilityZone: us-west-1b

This Cloud Deployment Manager deployment file creates a load balancer that load balances traffic to two virtual machine instances. The load balancer distributes traffic across the VM instances in the two regions. The deployment file also creates a health check to ensure the availability of the virtual machine instance. If a VM instance becomes unavailable, the load balancer switches traffic to another available VM instance.
Above is simple sample code for high availability using AWS and GCP. These sample codes can help users understand how to achieve high availability on cloud computing platforms. In the actual production environment, users need to carefully consider the requirements of their applications and services, and choose a suitable high-availability architecture according to the requirements. Attention also needs to be paid to architectural complexity and cost to ensure high availability while remaining cost effective
