Amazon Web Services Launches Manila Edge Location

leave a comment »

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a collection of remote computing services that together make up a cloud computing platform, offered over the Internet by Amazon.com. The most central and well-known of these services are Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3.

Recently, Amazon announced the creation of three new edge locations, including one in Manila, Philippines. Edge locations improve the performance and availability for end users of AWS customer applications being served by Amazon CloudFront and Amazon Route 53 and bring the total number of AWS edge locations to 49 worldwide. Three other edge locations in the region are Hong Kong, Korea and Singapore.

Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery web service. It integrates with other Amazon Web Services to give developers and businesses an easy way to distribute content to end users with low latency, high data transfer speeds, and no commitments. Amazon CloudFront can be used to deliver an entire website, including dynamic, static, streaming, and interactive content using a global network of edge locations. Requests for content are automatically routed to the nearest edge location, so content is delivered with the best possible performance.

The new locations support all of the Amazon CloudFront functionality including acceleration of static, dynamic and interactive content, live and on-demand streaming media, and custom SSL certificates. They also support all Amazon Route 53 functionality including health checks, DNS failover, and latency-based routing.
