Amazon Web Services LLC (AWS), an Amazon.com company, has launched support for dynamic content in Amazon CloudFront. This new capability gives AWS customers a simple, cost-effective way to improve the performance, reliability and global reach of their website by using Amazon CloudFront to deliver all their content, including the dynamic portions of their site that change for each end-user.
Amazon CloudFront works seamlessly with dynamic applications running in Amazon EC2, without any custom coding or proprietary configurations, making the service simple to deploy and manage. Because Amazon CloudFront charges the same low rates for both static and dynamic content, customers can now accelerate all of the content on their website for a low price, without any up-front fees or long term commitments.
Previously, developers who wanted to improve the performance and reliability of their dynamic content had limited options, as the solutions offered by traditional CDNs are expensive, hard to configure and difficult to manage. This often requires custom code on their websites, and configuration can take days or weeks.
Now, developers running web applications with both dynamic and static content can accelerate their entire website in minutes using only the AWS Management Console, without adding undue cost or complexity to their architecture. Amazon CloudFront has implemented several performance optimisations such as maintaining persistent connections with the origin web servers and other network path optimisations to speed up the delivery of dynamic content.
When dynamic content delivery is used with origin web servers running in Amazon EC2, customers get an even better experience as AWS monitors and streamlines the network paths from each Amazon CloudFront edge location to the various AWS Regions for improved latency and reliability. All of these features are available at the same low prices that Amazon CloudFront already offers to its customers.
Tal Saraf, AWS's General Manager for Amazon CloudFront, said, "With this release, we are continuing on the same path we started when we launched CloudFront. Iterating based on customer feedback and making premium and innovative content delivery features that other CDNs sell at high prices much less expensive and much easier to use."
Earth Networks gathers and analyses environmental observations from around the world to help promote a better understanding of the planet and its atmosphere.
With this new feature, requests for dynamic, static and streaming content are all routed through Amazon CloudFront's full worldwide network of edge locations, giving customers improved performance and reliability through network and route optimisations that accelerate the delivery of content from the origin to the end user. There are no additional costs beyond Amazon CloudFront's existing low prices for data transfer and requests, and no long-term commitments for use.
