Regions and Providers

The Now Platform acts as a Universal API and Overlay Network on top of existing cloud infrastructure providers.

In some cases, the routing layer is in a different region from where Now Lambdas are invoked. The roundtrip latency between them is usually in the 1 millisecond to sub-millisecond range.
