Cloud Front at AWS Amazon - The CDN Service

The AWS service called CloudFront is a great solution for projects that need just a small amount of content. Some of the issues at this point of the Beta Phase is the small number of features this service offers. At this time https: is not offered.

So why use CloudFront and what is it good for?

CloudFront provides service for Static Content to the Web where you have peaks and lows in your needed with a "pay as you go" service.

CloludFront provides international (a very small number of Edges) sites. Better than just one US site for many uses.

CloudFront is very low in cost.

It is almost possible to have a whole web site with no server at all! One missing feature is the Index.html default page for an empty URL.

If your needs match the current features of CloudFront it may be a great solution.
