AWS Global Accelerator now supports traffic through the new AWS edge location in Bangkok, Thailand. With this new edge location, AWS Global Accelerator further improves Internet performance for users in Thailand. AWS Global Accelerator is now available in more than 90 Points of Presence globally and supports application endpoints in 20 AWS Regions.  

AWS Global Accelerator is a service that improves the availability and performance of your internet-facing applications by as much as 60% by optimizing the path from your users to your application. You can test the performance benefits from your location with the speed comparison tool. It provides static IP addresses that act as a fixed entry point to your application endpoints in a single or multiple AWS Regions, such as your Application Load Balancers, Network Load Balancers or Amazon EC2 instances. To mitigate endpoint failure, it continually monitors the health of your application endpoints and redirects traffic to healthy endpoints in less than 30 seconds. Customers such as theTradeDesk, Skyscanner, JoyCity, 8x8, New Relic, Flowplayer, Par Tech, Team Internet AG, and CrazyCall use AWS Global Accelerator for applications ranging from web applications to gaming, video streaming, Internet of Things, and Voice over IP.  

With AWS Global Accelerator, you pay only for what you use. You are charged for each accelerator that is provisioned and the amount of traffic in the dominant direction that flows through the accelerator. To get started, visit the AWS Global Accelerator website and review its documentation.
