Overall Satisfaction with Amazon CloudFront
We've used Amazon CloudFront as a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to increase the availability of resources across multiple geographic regions while minimizing our need for EC2 instances to deliver such content. From a simple form of hosting website content (CSS, JS, Images) along with building products to utilize Amazon CloudFront as a more friendly manner to serve content within S3 and other origins.
- Amazon CloudFront allowed us to scale our web presence for national TV campaigns.
- Improve end-user experience when accessing content.
Because our products are built and utilize other AWS features, it was easiest to implement Amazon CloudFront based on initial environment configuration. Other CDNs were easier to get started with but required manual intervention to update overtime.
I haven't used support outside of searching for my own solutions.
