Less than two years ago I announced the 100th Point of Presence for Amazon CloudFront.
The overall Point of Presence footprint is now growing at 50% per year. Since we launched the 100th PoP in 2017, we have expanded to 77 cities in 34 countries including China, Israel, Denmark, Norway, South Africa, UAE, Bahrain, Portugal, and Belgium.
CloudFront has been used to deliver many high-visibility live-streaming events including Superbowl LIII, Thursday Night Football (via Prime Video), the Royal Wedding, the Winter Olympics, the Commonwealth Games, a multitude of soccer games (including the 2019 FIFA World Cup), and much more.
Whether used alone or in conjunction with other AWS services, CloudFront is a great way to deliver content, with plenty of options that also help to secure the content and to protect the underlying source. For example:
DDoS Protection – Amazon CloudFront customers were automatically protected against 84,289 Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks in 2018, including a 1.4 Tbps memcached reflection attack.
Attack Mitigation – CloudFront customers used AWS Shield Advanced and AWS WAF to mitigate application-layer attacks, including a flood of over 20 million requests per second.
Certificate Management – We announced CloudFront Integration with AWS Certificate Manager in 2016, and use of custom certificates has grown by 600%.
New Locations in South America Today I am happy to announce that our global network continues to grow, and now includes 200 Points of Presence, including new locations in Argentina (198), Chile (199), and Colombia (200):

AWS customer NED is based in Chile. They are using CloudFront to deliver server-side ad injection and low-latency content distribution to their clients, and are also using [email protected] to implement robust anti-piracy protection.
Price Reduction We are also reducing the pricing for on-demand data transfer from CloudFront by 56% for all Points of Presence in South America, effective November 1, 2019. Check out the CloudFront Pricing page to learn more.
