We are excited to announce new locations in Australia for Amazon CloudFront, Route 53, and Direct Connect. First, Amazon CloudFront and Route 53 customers have a new edge location in Melbourne, Australia. This is the second edge location in Australia (joining Sydney), and brings the total number of worldwide edge locations to 52. The new edge location can improve performance and availability for end users of your application and supports all Amazon CloudFront and Amazon Route 53 features at no additional cost.
Second, AWS Direct Connect customers now have a new location in Sydney, Australia. This is the second Direct Connect location in Sydney, and brings the total number of locations to 12. If you have your own equipment running at Global Switch, you can use Direct Connect to optimize the connection to AWS. If your equipment is located somewhere else, you can work with one of our APN Partners supporting Direct Connect to establish a connection from your location to a Direct Connection location, and from there on to AWS.
