Overall, this gives clients greater confidence in our practices and further establishes our commitment to AWS as an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner.”

What is CloudFront

Looking for a tool that delivers your user files, apps, and APIs safely, with low latency and fast transmission rates? And all in a developer-friendly environment? CloudFront is your solution.

Amazon CloudFront employs a global network of edge locations and regional edge caches that cache copies of your content close to your viewers. Amazon CloudFront ensures that end-user requests are served by the closest edge location. As a result, viewer requests travel a short distance, improving performance for your viewers. For files not cached at the edge locations and the regional edge caches, Amazon CloudFront keeps persistent connections with your origin servers so that those files can be fetched from the origin servers as quickly as possible. Finally, Amazon CloudFront uses additional optimizations – e.g. wider TCP initial congestion window – to provide higher performance while delivering your content to viewers.

Benefits of CloudFront

CloudFront offers the most advanced security capabilities, including field level encryption and HTTPS support, seamlessly integrated with AWS Shield, AWS Web Application Firewall and Amazon Route 53 to protect against multiple types of attacks including network and application layer DDoS attacks. These services co-reside at edge networking locations – globally scaled and connected via the AWS network backbone – providing a more secure, performant, and available experience for your users.

  • Global Scaled Network for Fast Content Delivery
  • Highly Programmable and Secure Edge Computing
