Great news for everyone using Amazon S3 for Content Delivery.
Amazon have just lauched CloudFront which
"delivers your content using a global network of edge locations. Requests for your objects are automatically routed to the nearest edge location, so content is delivered with the best possible performance."
The 4 Locations are Hong Kong, Japan, Europe and the United States.
This is really great news and was the missing piece to the puzzle given that most of my traffic is coming from the Asia-Pacific region.
Nirvanix have been offering this for sometime now and was my first choice, but now the tables have turned.
The combination of Ec2, S3 and now CloudFront make the Amazon Service Offering impossible to ignore.
Stay tuned for some initial tests on how CloudFront performs from the various locations.
