Amazon launches new CloudFront edge location in Sydney
Posted on 21-Jun-2012 09:53 | Tags Filed under: News



Amazon Web Services has announced the launch of its newest edge location in Sydney, Australia to serve end users of Amazon CloudFront and Amazon Route 53.

Amazon CloudFront is a web service for content delivery that serves over 20,000 customers - from startups to enterprises. It integrates with other Amazon Web Services to give developers and businesses an easy way to distribute content to end users with low latency, high data transfer speeds.

This is the company's first edge location in Australia. With this launch Amazon CloudFront and Amazon Route 53 now have a total of 33 edge locations worldwide.

Each new edge location helps lower latency and improves performance for end users. Amazon have launched eight new edge locations in 2012 and have plans to continue adding new edge locations worldwide in the future.

The company says an edge location in Australia has been frequently requested by customers. Existing customers using Amazon CloudFront or Amazon Route 53 don't need to change anything to applications as requests are automatically routed to this location when appropriate.

Like other Amazon CloudFront edge locations, our Sydney edge location supports all Amazon CloudFront features including delivery of dynamic content, low minimum content expiration periods, live streaming to multiple devices using Adobe FMS 4.5 or smooth streaming, streaming media, private content, invalidation, and custom origins.
