AWS announces new edge location in Türkiye



Amazon Web Services (AWS) announces expansion in Türkiye by launching a new Amazon CloudFront edge location in İstanbul. Customers in Türkiye can expect up to 30% improvement in latency and performance, on average, for data delivered through the new edge location. The new AWS edge location brings the full suite of benefits provided by [Amazon CloudFront](, a secure, highly distributed, and scalable content delivery network (CDN) that delivers static and dynamic content, APIs, and live and on-demand video with low latency and high performance. All Amazon CloudFront edge locations are protected against infrastructure-level DDoS threats with [AWS Shield]( that uses always-on network flow monitoring and in-line mitigation to minimize application latency and downtime. You also have the ability to add additional layers of security for applications to protect them against common web exploits and bot attacks by enabling [AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF)]( Traffic delivered from this edge location is included within the EU [region pricing]( To learn more about AWS edge locations, see [CloudFront edge locations](
