Common Use Cases for Amazon CloudFront

Web and App Acceleration

Modern websites and applications are a rich mixture of dynamic, personalized, and static content. Microservices also expose increasing numbers of APIs and requests between components. Amazon CloudFront is optimized for both, providing extensive flexibility for optimizing cache behavior, coupled with network-layer optimizations for latency and throughput.

Software Distribution

Amazon CloudFront scales automatically as globally-distributed clients download software updates. You can make your software available right at the edge where your users are, via the content delivery network (CDN). The CDN's high data transfer rates speed up the delivery of your binaries, improving customer experience while lowering your costs.


The CloudFront network currently has 410+ points of presence (PoPs), and leverages the highly-resilient Amazon backbone network for superior performance and availability for your end-user. That way, your content can be cached and delivered closer to your players, which provides a faster and more reliable user experience.

Security & DDoS Protection

Amazon CloudFront is a highly secure CDN that provides both network and application level protection. All CloudFront customers benefit from the automated protection of AWS Shield Standard, at no additional charge.

Live Video Streaming

Rapid delivery is key to providing broadcast-quality video experiences on any device, anywhere. Thanks to the Amazon CloudFront Edge network and robust cloud you will be able to meet the most demanding video and streaming needs.

Cost Optimization

Once you are a StormIT customer, our experts become an extension of your team, designing and supporting a network unique to your business needs. We frequently review changes in customer’s applications, traffic, and users, and based on this data we fine-tune your Amazon CloudFront CDN distribution to optimize for these changes.

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.
