AWS shared responsibility model between customer and AWS explained. Data centers located across the globe, are backbone to AWS. For instance, a service requester approaches AWS for its services, then AWS will do some background work to process the workload. AWS services distributed between different regions which are up and available.

Data Center Components.
- Physical Building
- Virtual Machines
- Data Encryption
Handling of the above components is the responsibility of AWS.
AWS Shared Responsibility.
Points you need to understand
- Some of the operations and its maintenance is responsibility of the Customer.
- And some other operations, customer is not responsible. This is the responsibility of the AWS.
For example your workload (customer) is running on EC2 instance. And, you need a database to store your data. Then, you can install MySQL database.
So, the management of MySQL database, including patches, updates is the responsibility of the customer.
Responsibility of EC2 instance and its virtual machines is of AWS.
Aws monitors all of its services using dash board monitoring system. If any outages found they will inform to the customers, and restores its services.
