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

  • The UI is godawful. I would almost say you need to be technical to feel confident that you're not going to break something, which is an issue for us as not all of our graphics team can use it.

  • 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

Alternatives Considered

Amazon CloudFront

We went with CloudFront primarily because we have all of our other services with Amazon already. We are using EC2, S3, Elastic Beanstalk, and are very familiar with the interface. It did not disappoint.

Return on Investment

Amazon CloudFront

  • Reduces the load of main application servers, meaning fewer active resources in use on EC2, ElasticBeanstalk, etc, saving money
  • Greatly speeds up page loads for users, when configured correctly (like any CDN)
