Are S3 buckets region specific?

0 votes

When we go to S3 in AWS console in "Global" option it shows

"S3 does not require region selection."

But when we create new bucket there it asks for Region !

So are S3 buckets region specific ?

Yes, S3 buckets are region specific & while creating a bucket one need to specify the target region for the respective bucket

Yes, S3 buckets are region specific.

We specify the region here as to reduce the latency and cost.

But when we create S3 in AWS console in "Global" it says "S3 does not require a region selection" because it shows all the buckets in all the regions as it is the user interface and this is the reason why you can't create the bucket with same names as it may lead to conflicts between addresses.
