Vercel Edge Functions can now be deployed to a specific region.

By default, Edge Functions run in every Vercel region globally. You can now deploy Edge Functions to a specific region, which allows you to place compute closer to your database. This keeps latency low due to the close geographical distance between your Function and your data layer.
