Amazon CloudFront announces the launch of CloudFront in China with three new Edge locations (POPs) located in Beijing, Shanghai, and Zhongwei, operated by Ningxia Western Cloud Data Co. Ltd. (NWCD). Customers can now serve content to end viewers in Mainland China with improved latency, availability and security.
CloudFront in China works with any AWS origin, such as Amazon S3, Elastic Load Balancing or Amazon EC2, or a custom origin. The CloudFront POPs in China are connected by a dedicated network to the two AWS China regions in Beijing and Ningxia offering improved reliability and performance when fetching content from AWS origins. To start using CloudFront in China, customers must setup a CloudFront distribution using the AWS Management Console or API in China and also obtain a valid ICP (Internet Content Provider) recordal.
To get started, log in to the AWS Management Console and start accelerating your content.
