We’re excited to announce the launch of our newest edge location in Sao Paulo, Brazil to serve Amazon CloudFront and Amazon Route 53. This is our first edge location in South America and with this location CloudFront and Route 53 now have a total of 20 edge locations worldwide. Each new edge location helps lower latency and improves performance for your end users. We plan to continue to add new edge locations worldwide.
An edge location in South America has been frequently requested by our customers so we are excited to add this location to our global network. If you’re already using CloudFront or Route 53, you don't need to do anything to your applications as requests are automatically routed to this location when appropriate.
