Another New Edge Location for Amazon CloudFront and Amazon Route 53

Voiced by Polly

We’ve just opened up an additional edge location for Amazon CloudFront and Amazon Route 53.

Located in picturesque Jacksonville, Florida, this new edge location enjoys long walks on the beach and responding to requests for content (CloudFront) and IP addresses (Route 53) from requesters in the southeast United States. This location brings the total number of US locations to 10 and the world-wide total to 17.

You don’t need to make any changes to your application or your system configuration in order to benefit from this new piece of AWS infrastructure.

This new addition caps off an exciting year for the team behind these services, which saw the initial release of Route 53 and a lot of progress for CloudFront including general availability and an SLA, support for custom origins, invalidation, support for default root objects, enhanced logs with support for query strings, HTTPS access, addition of other edge locations a price reduction, support for streaming access logs,  a reduction in the object TTL, and support for private streamed content.
