What is a satellite region?

A satellite region is an AWS region that only provides media services as a part of the Global Media Fabric configuration. A satellite region cannot act as an AWS region for Genesys Cloud deployment. Satellite regions provide Global Media Fabric with additional locations for call/audio paths to minimize latency. Future enhancements will allow satellite regions to support call recording storage.
