Amazon Web Services launches Amazon CloudFront
Amazon Web Services has launched Amazon CloudFront, a self-service, pay-as-you-go web service for content delivery. With CloudFront, developers and businesses can distribute content through a worldwide network of edge locations that provide low latency and high data transfer speeds.

CloudFront works seamlessly with other AWS services such as Amazon S3, and like all AWS services, is self-service with no up-front commitments, no long-term contracts and pay-as-you-go pricing

“Our customers asked us for a way to globally distribute their most frequently accessed content with all the benefits that Amazon Web Services provides — low, pay-as-you-go pricing, high performance, and reliability,” said Adam Selipsky, Vice President of Product Management and Developer Relations for Amazon Web Services. “Amazon CloudFront provides low latency, inexpensive content delivery and simple integration with Amazon S3 — without complex sales negotiations or up-front commitments.”

Built on Amazon’s own infrastructure, CloudFront lets developers and businesses deliver HTTP content through a worldwide network of edge locations. The service caches copies of content close to end users for low latency delivery, while also providing fast, sustained data transfer rates needed to deliver popular objects to end users at scale.

CloudFront works seamlessly with Amazon S3, where users store the original versions of objects delivered through the service. Customers need only put their objects into an Amazon S3 bucket and then register that bucket with the new service using a simple API call, which then returns a domain name used to access content through the network of edge locations.

Customers of Amazon CloudFront can also take advantage of 24x7x365 personalized assistance and technical expertise by signing up for AWS Premium Support.

The service enables use cases such as video distribution, software downloads, music downloads, and delivering frequently accessed website images and objects.
