Which of the following features ensures even distribution of traffic to Amazon EC2 instances in multiple
Availability Zones registered with a load balancer?

A.
Elastic Load Balancing request routing

B.
An Amazon Route 53 weighted routing policy

C.
Elastic Load Balancing cross-zone load balancing

D.
An Amazon Route 53 latency routing policy

Explanation:
Cross-zone load balancing is always enabled for an Application Load Balancer and is disabled by default for a
Classic Load Balancer. If cross-zone load balancing is enabled, the load balancer distributes traffic evenly
across all registered instances in all enabled Availability Zones. If cross-zone load balancing is disabled, the
load balancer distributes traffic evenly across all enabled Availability Zones. For example, suppose that you
have 10 instances in Availability Zone us-west-2a and 2 instances in us-west-2b. If cross-zone load balancing is
disabled, the requests are distributed evenly between us-west-2a and us-west-2b. As a result, the 2 instances
in us-west-2b serve the same amount of traffic as the 10 instances in us-west-2a. However, if cross-zone load
balancing is enabled, the load balancer distributes incoming requests evenly across all 12 instances.
