Amazon CloudFront Edge Locations: AWS’ Amazon CloudFront launches 5 new CloudFront Edge Locations. These are located in Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Kenya, and Romania.

AWS CloudFront is a Content Delivery Network and helps webpages to distribute their content globally. To achieve this, CDN’s leverage managed reverse proxy servers. The goal is to bring content closer to the consumer. And through keeping bulky media distributed, it prevents congesting internet connections.

These added deployments will help AWS customers and their consumers experience significantly improved page load times. AWS has constantly expanded CloudFront’s Network footprint since its launch in 2008. With this recent update, CloudFront now has 216 points of presence in 84 cities across 42 countries.
