Amazon has announced two new India edge locations in Chennai and Mumbai for Amazon CloudFront and Amazon Route 53. These new edge locations will help lower latency and improve performance for end users in the region.

If you're already using CloudFront or Route 53, you don't need to do anything to your applications to take advantage of these new edge locations - requests from end users will automatically be routed to these locations for the best possible performance. These two sites bring the total number of AWS edge locations to 42 worldwide.

Commenting on the launch, Amazon said in a statement, "Many of our customers have large and growing user bases in India and surrounding countries, and our customers have frequently requested edge locations in India. The locations in India support all CloudFront and Route 53 capabilities, including delivery of your entire website (including dynamic content), live and on-demand streaming media, and security features like custom SSL certificates."

Regional Data Transfer Out pricing for India locations is cheaper than other locations in Asia, but more expensive when compared to United States and Europe.
