AWS Global Accelerator now supports traffic through two new AWS edge locations in Lima, Peru and Nashville, Tennessee (United States). With the addition of these two edge locations, Global Accelerator is now available through 106 Points of Presence globally and supports application endpoints in 21 AWS Regions.

AWS Global Accelerator is a service that improves the availability, security, and performance of your internet-facing applications. By using the congestion-free AWS network, end-user traffic to your applications benefits from increased availability, DDoS protection at the edge, and higher performance relative to public internet. Global Accelerator provides static IP addresses that act as fixed entry endpoints for your application resources in one or more AWS Regions, such as your Application Load Balancers, Network Load Balancers, Amazon EC2 instances, or Elastic IPs. Global Accelerator continually monitors the health of your application endpoints and offers deterministic fail-over for multi-region workloads without any DNS dependencies.
