Two new Amazon CloudFront Edge Locations in the Nordics
Amazon just announced really exciting news to the current and future Nordic customers.
Amazon CloudFront coverage in the Nordic countries has developed very rapidly. In 2016 Amazon had one Amazon CloudFront edge location in Stockholm. Today Amazon has a total of 6 edge locations in the Nordic region – three in Stockholm and one in Copenhagen, Helsinki and Oslo.
The current Amazon CloudFront edge location coverage, together with the expected Sweden Region launch later this year, makes Amazon CloudFront hard to pass when considering a solution for content delivery and DDoS protection in the region.
FASTER CONTENT DELIVERY AND GREATER BANDWIDTH
The new Amazon CloudFront Edge locations mean faster content delivery and greater bandwidth in the whole region with the AWS hallmark ease of use and pay-as-you-go pricing scheme. The locations bring the AWS private data transfer backbone closer to the customers for improved security. In addition, Amazon CloudFront plays a crucial role in the delivery of managed DDoS protection with the AWS Shield Advanced.
“Our Nordic customers have benefited from Amazon CloudFront´s ease of use and pay-as-you-go model for years. The speed of launching new edge locations is really remarkable as the service performance improves without any action or additional costs to our customers. As for any other Amazon CloudFront location, we are able to offer preferential pricing for significant customer use,” says Jaakko Kontiainen, Nordcloud Alliance Lead for AWS.
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.
KEY BENEFITS OF CLOUDFRONT
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.
