Amazon adds CloudFront & Route 53 Edge Location

Today, Amazon announced 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 end users in that region. With further plans to continue adding new edge locations worldwide throughout 2011, this is a very promising and cost effective alternative to traditional CDNs and DNS services.
