First time here, read through lots of info in the docs and some threads here.
Anycast is great for routing users to the ‘closest/best’ datacenter, but my need is to be able to send requests (HTTPS) to our Node app in a specific location.
Say, I have selected the regions ams, syd and lax.
I’d like Fly to fire up an instance in ams, as per the requests coming in to https://ams.myservice.com.
Can’t launch instance in ams? Do it in a nearby backup location (that’s fine).
Fly volumes may play a role here, but I’ve not been able to find anything that informs me how to send a request to a specific location (which may not be possible since you’re running an Anycasted network).
