We are excited to announce that Amazon CloudFront, the easy-to-use content delivery network , has added a new edge location in Madrid, Spain. This is our first edge location in Spain and this new location will speed up the delivery of static, streaming and dynamic content to end users in and around Spain. Each new edge location helps lower latency and improves performance for your end users.

If you’re already using Amazon CloudFront, you don't need to do anything to your applications as requests are automatically routed to this location when appropriate. The Amazon CloudFront location in Madrid supports all Amazon CloudFront features including support for dynamic content, cookies, low minimum content expiration periods, live streaming to multiple devices using FMS 4.5 or Live Smooth Streaming, streaming media, private content, invalidation, and custom origins.
