Overall Satisfaction with Amazon CloudFront

We use Amazon CloudFront to distribute and speed up the delivery of our static content (audio and image) to end-users across the world. Technically we use it for hosting website content (CSS, JS, Images) and speeding up content delivery from S3 and other origins with different behaviors.
  • Manage CDN properly
  • Fast and reliable
  • Distributed across the world
  • Improved way to serve existing content from S3 or other origins
  • Allows customization at edge locations
  • Skillset required for deployment (initial learning curve)
  • Need more examples of different usages and all the options available
  • The UI is not intuitive at all
  • Talking about just price, CloudFront is not the cheapest
  • Replicated across the world
  • Integrated with other AWS resources and services
  • Reliable (support of the AWS infrastructure)
We use a great set of AWS features and it was easy to implement Amazon CloudFront. It fulfills our needs, and the learning curve was not difficult given the AWS configuration we already have.
Easy way to integrate a CDN within the AWS infrastructure. It allows further customization based on company needs.
There should be more examples on the different configurations, use cases, costs, etc.
