Common Use Cases for Amazon CloudFront

Web and App Acceleration

Amazon CloudFront was built to handle both static and dynamic (personalized) content which is an integral part of modern websites and apps. By utilizing AWS network optimizations for load and latency, coupled with improvements for cache behavior with caching protocols in 410+ edge locations, CloudFront is an ideal platform for handling this content.

Software Distribution

Amazon CloudFront is a CDN that automatically scales to match the needs of its clients. Using this service allows you to keep your files safe and available right at the edge, closer to your users. Download speeds for clients are significantly faster than sending files via traditional methods. CloudFront can also reduce the cost of distributing software.


Amazon's backbone network brings superior performance and high availability to CloudFront customers. Globally distributed users also have direct access to CloudFront's 600+ PoPs across the network and to 12+ regional edge caches with high cache capacity. This means that game players can have content cached and delivered closer to them, providing a faster and more reliable experience.

Security & DDoS Protection

Amazon CloudFront is a highly secure CDN which can protect the network, transport, and application layers. CloudFront includes Amazon Shield Standard which protects your infrastructure against network and transport layer attacks. You can leverage the AWS Web Application Firewall (AWS WAF) at the edge for application layer protection.

Live Video Streaming

Video streaming is getting ever more popular and users are demanding a higher quality and resolution with the lowest latency possible. The CloudFront global network offers industry-leading delivery of high-quality video streaming. It can easily deliver any video format, on any device, anywhere. Because of this, companies can trust CloudFront to meet their most demanding project needs.

Cost Optimization

StormIT regularly consults with clients about their daily operations, including the volume of users, data transfers, and applications running on the origin servers. As a result, network admins have an extended support team at their disposal who can help fine-tune the CloudFront CDN to properly reflect client requirements.

Amazon CloudFront

Amazon CloudFront is a fast content delivery network (CDN) service that securely delivers data, videos, applications, and APIs to customers globally with low latency, high transfer speeds, all within a developer-friendly environment.

CloudFront is integrated with AWS – both physical locations that are directly connected to the AWS global infrastructure, as well as other AWS services. CloudFront works seamlessly with services including AWS Shield for DDoS mitigation, Amazon S3, Elastic Load Balancing or Amazon EC2 as origins for your applications, and Lambda@Edge to run custom code closer to customers’ users and to customize the user experience.

Lastly, if you use AWS origins such as Amazon S3, Amazon EC2 or Elastic Load Balancing, you don’t pay for any data transferred between these services and CloudFront.
