AWS GovCloud (US) is a specialized region of Amazon Web Services designed specifically for United States government agencies and customers to move sensitive workloads into the cloud by addressing their specific regulatory and compliance requirements. Key features and benefits of AWS GovCloud include:
Compliance and Regulations: It adheres to U.S. government compliance requirements, including the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), the Department of Defense (DoD) Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (SRG) Levels 2 and 4, and the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Security Policy.
Managed Access: AWS GovCloud is accessible only to U.S. citizens and organizations, as it requires a stringent access control policy ensuring that only vetted U.S. personnel can access the environment.
Data Residency: It ensures that data is stored on U.S. soil, a critical requirement for many government contracts and regulations.
Security: Enhanced security features are a significant aspect of AWS GovCloud, making it suitable for sensitive data and workloads requiring stringent security measures.
Isolated Environment: AWS GovCloud operates in an isolated environment, separate from other AWS regions, providing additional levels of security and compliance.
Wide Range of Services: Despite its specialized nature, AWS GovCloud offers a broad range of services similar to other AWS regions, including computing, storage, networking, database, analytics, application services, deployment, and management.
By using AWS GovCloud, U.S. government agencies and contractors can leverage the advanced capabilities of AWS for sensitive workloads while meeting strict compliance and security requirements, an essential aspect often required in government-related projects, including those involving penetration testing and cybersecurity.
AWS GovCloud (US-West) is located on the West Coast of the United States. While Amazon Web Services (AWS) does not publicly disclose the exact locations of its data centers for security reasons, the AWS GovCloud (US-West) region is generally known to be in the Northwestern part of the United States. This geographical positioning is strategic, offering redundancy and reliability for government workloads, especially for those customers and agencies located on or near the West Coast. It complements the AWS GovCloud (US-East) region, providing geographical diversity for disaster recovery and continuity of operations, a crucial aspect in maintaining high availability and resilience, especially for sensitive government operations including those related to penetration testing and cybersecurity.
AWS GovCloud (US-East) is located on the East Coast of the United States. Similar to AWS GovCloud (US-West), the exact location of the data centers is not publicly disclosed by Amazon Web Services for security reasons.

This strategic location provides redundancy and a geographically diverse option for U.S. government agencies and contractors who require cloud services that meet specific regulatory and compliance requirements. The presence of both AWS GovCloud (US-East) and AWS GovCloud (US-West) regions offers enhanced disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities, crucial for maintaining high availability and security, especially for operations that involve sensitive data and activities like penetration testing.
