Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon CloudFront

Amazon CloudFront is best suited when there is a need of speed in serving static and dynanic web contents of a web application. If the content is already in that edge location, CloudFront delivers it immediately. If the content is not currently in that edge location, CloudFront retrieves it from an Amazon S3 bucket or an HTTP server. Amazon CloudFront is not appropriate in case users can tolerate some delays or servers are present near to the location of user. It also Integrates through the W3 Total Cache plugin. Amazon CloudFront Pricing based on bandwidth usage that's the best part of it.

Incapsula really exceeds if you have a very large amount of traffic, it is a truly durable and resilient WAF. Global load balancing, increased security, added caching, smaller number of sites (but very important)? Then I would recommend Incapsula. Incapsula is always additive to features your infrastructure has and it does those well, so I would always advise using it if your site has high traffic, is business critical, or accesses sensitive information through a SQL backend.

Pros

Amazon CloudFront

  • CloudFront, like other CDNs, is a very reliable content delivery network for delivering content like images, videos, HTML, and javascripts that are run on browsers across the world.
  • It provides secure hosting of content at no extra cost. AWS Certification Manager also provides the ability to create and manage custom SSL certificates at no extra cost for our websites.
  • It is secure, which means that it uses AWS Shield for Layer 3/4 DDoS mitigation and AWS WAF for Layer 7 protection. Hence seamlessly integrating with other AWS services. So you do not have to shop outside of AWS ecosystem

Cons

Amazon CloudFront

  • If price is the main concern, CloudFront is not the cheapest-in-class by a wide margin
  • Some of the settings are not obvious to new users, and the management dashboards could use work
  • Lacks fine-grained access controls and statistical reports for usage

Imperva CDN

  • Web Interface could be better, no overall site details/performance views.
  • API is limited if you do not have a reseller account unnecessarily.
  • Alerting / Reports / Bot

CloudFront is a good CDN solution. It can be a bit complicated to implement depending on your needs, but AWS tech support is great. You get to avoid a ton of upfront costs by going with CloudFront. It works best in conjunction with other AWS services in your infrastructure. Once you set it up, you won't need to do much to maintain it. It just works.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon CloudFront

Amazon has always been creative and leading, and I have been using its services for years. They are very reassuring and have fast and responsive support--you can call them from any time zone to respond quickly. High security on servers, open hands on changes, and increasing and decreasing server resources and features.

Return on Investment

Amazon CloudFront

  • Our website loads much more quickly in other countries as a result of CloudFront. For example: loading cached assets from CloudFront in Australia is 4x as fast as it would be to load the same assets without CloudFront.
  • Very inexpensive service considering the value it brings.
