Congratulations if you distribute content to customers in Finland, and a special congratulations if you are already doing it through Amazon CloudFront!

Amazon Web Services have just announced the opening of the first Amazon CloudFront Edge location in Finland. This means that you can now distribute your content to your customers in Finland faster, with greater bandwidth and with the simplicity that AWS can offer.

“As an AWS Consulting Partner originating in Finland, we’re thrilled how this new Edge location delivers faster service to the Finnish end users. Better yet, our current Finnish customers will get these improvements without any action or additional costs,” says Jaakko Kontiainen, Nordcloud Alliance Lead for AWS.

 

Amazon CloudFront

Amazon CloudFront is a global content delivery network (CDN) service that securely delivers data, videos applications, and APIs to your viewers with low latency and transfer speeds. CloudFront is integrated with AWS – both physical locations that are directly connected to the AWS global infrastructure, as well as software that works seamlessly with services including AWS shield for DDoS mitigation, Amazon S3, Elastic Load Balancing, or Amazon EC2 as origins for your applications, and AWS Lambda to run custom code close to your viewers.

Some of the key benefits include extensive integration with other AWS services, ease of use, a cost-effective pay-as-you-go pricing scheme, and the growing global distribution network exhibited by the latest Edge location.
