I’m thinking of deploying a few of our services on the edge, where we have latency problems. We’re customers of AWS and I saw they came recently with Local Zones. Before that we though of using Fly.io but now it seems like AWS is the more straightforward choice - any thoughts?
AWS Local Zones are essentially regions with cutdown functionality and offerings and at a higher price. Aside from that, theres no difference when comparing AWS regions to fly.io regions vs comparing AWS Local Zones to fly.io regions.
If you’re already using AWS and you want to stick with AWS then Local Zones will do the trick as long as they offer the services that you need. If there are regions that fly.io offers that AWS doesn’t then that would be the obvious benefit to using fly.io to augment your services.
