How do we know whether we should use CloudFront or just S3 for our data? Which data should be in CloudFront, and which just in S3? How much data is in the cache? How long can data stay in the cache? The reason I ask is because you could be paying twice as much by using CloudFront if your objects aren't requested enough. I'm just wondering where that line is. There's one charge for the get from S3, and one charge for the get from CloudFront to the client.

Also, its not clear if you can use a different origin server besides S3.

Thanks Jeff for putting my tutorial in your post. Have moved all static content on Digital Inspiration to CloudFront as well.

This was super easy - we at Zephyr have already converted half our sites to using CloudFront. We are seeing improved performance.

Much like Boto, the new Tarzan 2.0 release supports CloudFront. Tarzan provides a PHP 5 interface to S3, SQS, EC2, SimpleDB, Amazon Associates, and CloudFront.


Amazing stuff! Amazon is building an amazing technology stack for large applications development. I’m sure they are going to make A LOT of money in the future.
