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 and mobile 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 optimizations such as maintaining persistent connections with the origin web servers and other network path optimizations to speed up the delivery of dynamic content. In this session you will learn how Amazon CloudFront can improve the performance of your dynamic applications, how it works, and the best practices for integrating it into your current apps.
