Amazon CloudFront announces ten new Edge locations, adding to our global presence. Eight of the new Edge locations are in North America: Houston, Texas (our first location in this city), Chicago, Illinois, Newark, New Jersey, Los Angeles, California, and Ashburn, Virginia. We also added an Edge location in Berlin, Germany, as well as one in Tokyo, Japan.
With this launch, CloudFront will increase its request processing capacity by up to 40%, on average, in the North American cities.
建立 EC2 instance，在上面跑 Unbound，然後 EC2 instance 的 DNS servers 設定要指到這邊。
由於 EC2 的 DHCP 服務沒有辦法指定發放的 IP range，所以為了多重意外而中獎 (關機的時候剛好有其他機器 DHCP 拿到這組 IP)，需要開獨立的 subnet 只放固定 IP 的服務。
為了系統的穩定性，需要在兩個不同 AZ (或是三個) 架設這些 DNS Resolver，所以對應有兩個或是三個 subnet 得建立。
而地端到雲端通常會簡單一些，因為地端通常都已經有內部的 DNS Resolver 可以用，通常只需要在雲上面有 proxy 的角色就可以解決。
不過現在這些 AWS 都直接提供了：
Hybrid Cloud is available today in US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Europe (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo) and Asia Pacific (Singapore), with other commercial regions to follow.
Route 53 Resolver remains free for DNS queries served within your VPC. Resolver Endpoints use Elastic Network Interfaces (ENIs) costing $0.125 per hour. DNS queries that are resolved by a Conditional Forwarding Rule or a Resolver Endpoint cost $0.40 per million queries up to the first billion and $0.20 per million after that.
The new AWS EU (Stockholm) Region will have three Availability Zones and will be ready for customers to use in 2018.
這會是歐洲第五個 Region (還有一個法國預定在今年開)：
The new AWS EU (Stockholm) Region, coupled with the existing AWS Regions in Dublin, Frankfurt, and London, and a future one in France, will provide customers with quick, low-latency access to websites, mobile applications, games, SaaS applications, big data analysis, Internet of Things (IoT) applications, and more.
We’re opening a brand new Tokyo facility next month. This will enable customers in the region to take advantage of several recent Linode announcements: KVM hypervisor, our latest plan specs including double the RAM and SSD servers, and mass availability. Stay tuned for the announcement within the next few weeks.
Bitmain already controls an estimated 18.6% of hashpower worldwide, and many independent miners in the community expressed concern that controlling a massive data centre dedicated to mining bitcoin would give the company too much influence over bitcoin.
Linode will be opening a new datacenter in Shibagawa ward, Tokyo, Japan, this fall and I was able to interview Linode’s datacenter operations manager, Brett Kaplan, who answered questions I asked regarding the upcoming Tokyo datacenter launch.
目標在 2016Q4 上線：
Soh: Can you say when this new datacenter is expected to come online? Brett: We are hoping to launch later in Q4 this year.
ING Bank’s main data center in Bucharest, Romania, was severely damaged over the weekend during a fire extinguishing test. In what is a very rare but known phenomenon, it was the loud sound of inert gas being released that destroyed dozens of hard drives. The site is currently offline and the bank relies solely on its backup data center, located within a couple of miles’ proximity.
