Posted on: Feb 8, 2011

We’re excited to announce that we’ve added a new edge location in Paris to help improve performance for end users of Amazon CloudFront and Amazon Route 53. Both CloudFront and Route 53 utilize a global network of locations to provide your end users with low latency and high performance in accessing your content. With this addition, the number of locations utilized by CloudFront and Route 53 in Europe has increased to 5, and the number of global locations to 18. We plan to continue to add new locations worldwide for each service throughout 2011. To learn more about CloudFront and Route 53, visit their respective product detail pages on our website.

We’re also hosting a free interactive online Q&A session about CloudFront on Feb 9, 2011 from 9 am – 10 am PST (5 pm – 6 pm UTC/GMT). If you have questions about the service, register for this session at
