ZEIT Now CDN latency for some of our regions, from your current location.
Being an Origin region
means that we can now run and host your deployments in Dublin.
is also a CDN node
, we can cache your content
and make it immediately available across our network, to deliver a faster experience
- Full Origin: lightning quick access to content, and greater redundancy
- Improved Latency: over 5x improvement over our previous options
Smaller is better. The average latency (in ms) for a connection to DUB1, LHR1, and CDG1 from an office connection in Dublin.
Following this announcement, DUB1
will be made available to
all deployments. All your customers in or near Dublin are already enjoying
The Origin node closest to you will be made your new default region, automatically.
For example, if you are deploying from Liverpool, which is closer to Dublin
than to London or Stockholm, your default node will automatically be DUB1.
As always, you retain full control over your Origin regions. If your APIs
or datasources are in or near Dublin, you can explicitly choose to deploy and
serve your app from Dublin:
now --regions dub
To deploy and serve your app from multiple regions, you can specify all of them:
now --regions dub,sfo,sin
The primary use case for
--regions is deploying functions close to your datasource.
Even if you decide to only deploy to Dublin, your static assets and
dynamic responses will always be cached globally across all CDN
regions in our network, ensuring the quickest response time for all of your users.
You can start deploying to DUB1 for all your applications using version
(or newer) of Now CLI
89% of households
in Ireland have access to the Internet. A large number of technology startups
that operate global businesses call Dublin home. Web Summit
considered the largest tech event in the world, also originated in Dublin.
We are proud to be able to offer a faster web experience to our patrons in and nearby Dublin,
in addition to greater redundancy.
Not only do we want to make a truly global infrastructure available, we also want
it to be easily accessible. With our default global CDN, we are enabling every
developer to improve the experience for their users without much configuration.
