And here goes first blog post of 2018. Last few months went busy with some major changes in personal life. :) I looked into Amazon’s India connectivity with various ASNs tonight. Here’s how it looks like. (Note: Jump to bottom most to skip traces and look at the summary data). Traceroutes Amazon India to Vodafone India traceroute to 188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets 1 ec2-52-66-0-128.ap-south-1.compute.amazonaws.com (220.127.116.11) 21.861 ms ec2-52-66-0-134.
It’s great to see Amazon announcement two days back about launch of their region in Mumbai. In past I was quite happy to see their Cloudfront CDN PoPs in Mumbai & Chennai (blog post here). Now it’s just great to see a full AWS region out of Mumbai. :) Though it’s going to eat most of important customers from the smaller players still it’s good for industry as industry is too big and we need more & more of such large Cloud players in India to bring more and more content hosting in India.
