|GHG Protocol Description||Data available to Cloud Vendor customers?|
|“number and location”||
Partial – the customer can determine which location (region) they deploy to, but the concept of “zones” cannot necessarily be mapped to a single data center.|
For example, Google Cloud Platform has the concept of Zones within Regions. The Region location is defined but the Zone location is not. A Zone may be one or many clusters where a cluster represents distinct physical infrastructure (power, cooling, network) within a data center. Further, zones are not necessarily physical, potentially differing across customers .
For certain types of Compute Primitives e.g. Azure Functions, code is deployed to a specific region but there may be multiple zones within the region and a zone may be one or many physical data centers . AWS has a single region in Virginia  but has 55 physical data centers in that geography .
