In this article we shall look into what Amazon CloudFront is, how it works (with examples), benefits and its pricing, in a summarized format. I hope this will be very much useful for beginners and for those who prepare for AWS exams.
What is Amazon CloudFront?
Amazon CloudFront is a webservice that expedites the distribution of static and dynamic website content.
It can also be called as on-demand content management system.
Amazon manages several data centers called Edge locations in each region to deliver static and dynamic website content through CloudFront.
Amazon CloudFront stores the static and dynamic content in its cache memory.
CloudFront speeds up the distribution of your content by routing user requests to the edge location.
