Got the newsletter from Amazon.
We’re excited to inform you about the addition of a new edge location in Paris, France to serve end users of Amazon CloudFront and Amazon Route 53. With this new location, CloudFront and Route 53 now have a total of 5 edge locations in Europe, and 18 total edge locations worldwide. Each new edge location helps lower latency and improves performance for your end users in that region. We plan to continue to add new edge locations worldwide throughout 2011.
It is a good news. I use Amazon CloudFront as a cache system, or CDN, on many sites. It always give a good performance from USA, Canada, etc. Now It has more and more edge locations around the world. So every one can get the content from the closer server.
Yes, this blog is also powered by Amazon FrontCloud.
About Amazon CloudFront
Amazon CloudFront, the easy to use content delivery network, lets you deliver your content to your end users with low latency and high, sustained data transfer rates. Like other Amazon Web Services, there are no long term contracts or required monthly minimum commitments for using CloudFront – you pay only for as much or as little content as you actually deliver through the service. Learn more about our recent features that allow you to do even more with CloudFront: custom origins, object invalidation, default root object, detailed log files, private content, video and audio streaming, and HTTPS to name a few.
