Most of the documentation or configuration info I have seen reference the history.stellar.org bucket on AWS S3 as the official source of history data. This bucket appears to be in the eu-west-1 (Ireland) region.

Are these files also replicated to S3 buckets in other regions that may be closer to a given node? Are there "official" data sources on Azure or GCP as well?

We don't have any other official history archived besides history.stellar.org, although we do plan to add more at some point in the future.

We're also hoping others will step up and host history mirrors to better decentralize. In my non-company opinion, I'd prefer the network to be in a state such that the "official" history archives are not necessary.
