Amazon CloudFront adds Canadian edge servers

It is good to know that Amazon AWS service adds new edge locations in Montreal and Toronto for Cloudfront. I hope it will be soon to have a new edge in Canada West, such as Vancouver.

Amazon CloudFront adds new edge locations in Montreal and Toronto, our first in Canada

We are pleased to announce the launch of our newest edge locations in Toronto and Montreal, our first edge locations in Canada. Adding locations in Canada has been frequently requested by our customers so we are excited to add these two locations to our global network. If you’re already using Amazon CloudFront, you don’t need to do anything to your applications as requests are automatically routed to these locations when appropriate.

These new edge locations help improve performance and availability to end users of your applications and support all Amazon CloudFront features at no additional cost. Pricing for the new edge locations in Canada is the same as that in the US.

We have also added a second edge location in Sao Paolo, Brazil, our third edge location in Brazil. With the addition of the new locations in Canada and the second edge location in Sao Paolo, Amazon CloudFront now has a total of 59 edge locations worldwide. To see a list of all Amazon CloudFront global edge locations, please see our edge location list. To learn more about the service, attend a monthly office hour session that includes Q&A with Amazon CloudFront Engineers and Product Managers. Visit Amazon CloudFront for more information and register for the next office hour.

I am using CloudFront as CDN. It is one of the best CDN service providers. If you have no time to test and try different ones, I recommend it to you.
