One of the biggest advantages of API monitoring is the ability to test and monitor your API from locations around the globe. This can help teams get an accurate measurement of the performance API users are seeing when working with their APIs, and help monitor and improve the user API experience.

That's why we offer multiple locations for our users to run their API tests from, and why we are excited to announce that we're expanding from 16 to 19 locations! The three new locations we've just added are:

  • US Iowa

  • US South Carolina

  • Finland

Another big part of this announcement is that, in the past, our locations used two different providers: AWS, and Rackspace. These 3 new locations are now leveraging Google's Cloud Platform, which means that our users can now get a broader overview of their API's health.

The new locations are already available for all customers, and can be found in your Environment Settings under the Locations tab:

If you have any questions about the new locations, please reach out to support and we'll be happy to help!
