Details: Amazon CloudFront announces ten new Edge locations, adding to our global presence. Eight of the new Edge locations are in North America: Houston, Texas (our first location in this city), Chicago, Illinois, Newark, New Jersey, Los Angeles, California, and Ashburn, Virginia. We also added an Edge location in Berlin, Germany, as well as one in Tokyo, Japan.

With this launch, CloudFront will increase its request processing capacity by up to 40%, on average, in the North American cities.

These new Edge locations add to CloudFront's existing global presence and enhance delivery, performance, and scale for our customers. A full list of CloudFront’s global locations is available on the CloudFront Features webpage.
