Amazon Goes To Australia For CloudFront Enhancement

June 21, 2012 1 Comment »

Amazon has recently announced plans for expansion of its data center operations into Australia. The network of data centers for the company is a necessary support to the company’s cloud services. The latest addition is coming up in Sydney, Australia and is aimed at enhancing the use of the CloudFront and S3 services in Australia. This expansion comes in response to customer demands and increase in internal logging.

S3 helps the storage of data online and CloudFront helps in content delivery network. The success and spread of AWS or Amazon Web Services, the company’s cloud operations has been massive.

The Sydney facility is an ‘edge location’ which means that it is not a full-fledged data center   but will help deliver S3 and CloudFront effectively. It is speculated that Amazon will be leasing data center space from another company as far as Sydney is concerned.

Locations like San Francisco, Dublin and Tokyo have full sized data centers.
