Postman Announces Multi-Region Support
August 17, 2017

Postman announced a major update to their Postman monitoring feature — now developers can select geographical locations from which to run API tests.

This solution enables developers to monitor and measure network latency issues from a network in one region to a network in another region.

The Postman implementation for regional monitoring mirrors the Amazon Web Services (AWS) stack, allowing Postman to support the many regions that AWS supports, and to add new regions when AWS adds new data centers.

Postman’s monitoring implementation also allows very quick provisioning of new regions, when requested - taking less than a day.

Postman supports six regions to allow broad coverage for customers.

· US East

· US West

· Canada

· EU

· Asia Pacific

· South America

“It’s important to test the behavior of APIs in multiple locations,” said Abhinav Asthana, CEO and co-founder of Postman. “For example, you could test the latency behavior of API calls from San Francisco to Bangalore, and compare it to the latency behavior from San Francisco and New York. With Postman, you can select the appropriate geographical regions for both locations and check the API response times. If it takes a significantly longer time for your API to load in Bangalore than it does in New York, then Bangalore users might not get the maximum performance of the application. With this information, developers can refactor the code to increase latency for Bangalore users.”
