Amazon CloudFront adds Edge location


On Dec 22, 2010, Amazon added a new CloudFront edge location in Jacksonville, FL. With this new location, CloudFront now has a total of 10 edge locations in the United States, and 17 total edge locations worldwide. Each new edge location helps lower latency and improves performance in delivering content by caching it even closer to end users. The new Jacksonville edge location will help improve performance for end users in the south east United States. Amazon plans to continue to add new edge locations worldwide throughout 2011.

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 monthly minimum commitments for using CloudFront - you pay only for as much or as little content as you actually deliver through the service.
