Amazon CloudFront launches new Edge Locations
AWS Logo

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.

Google Cloud Is Down

Apparently Google was down the other day. Unfortunately, I was on a train in a really remote location and couldn’t verify what I picked up from Hacker News and tweeted.

Meanwhile, there is a bit of broader coverage on Slashdot and The Verge, that hint at the size of the outage.

Again, an outage like this reminds of the issues that remain with the Cloud, the difference to traditional infrastructure is merely scale at which an outage hits.
