Amazon announce the launch of a new Amazon CloudFront edge location in Atlanta, GA. Amazon also recently added third edge locations in London, UK and Frankfurt, Germany to provide even better service for their customers.
With the new launch in Atlanta and the addition of third edge locations in London and Frankfurt, CloudFront now has a total of 46 edge locations worldwide. Each new edge location helps lower latency and improves performance for your end users. If you’re already using CloudFront, you don’t need to do anything to your applications to take advantage of these new edge locations – requests from your end users will automatically be routed to these locations for the best possible performance.
