Amazon CloudFront is a content delivery network (CDN) offered by Amazon Web Services. CloudFront operates on a pay-as-you-go basis. The service was launched in Beta on November 18, 2008.

CloudFront has servers located in Europe (United Kingdom, Ireland, The Netherlands and Germany), Asia (Hong Kong and Japan) as well as in several major cities in the USA.

CloudFront completes with larger content delivery networks such as Akamai and Limelight Networks. Upon launch, Larry Dignan of ZDNet News stated that CloudFront could effect price and margin reductions from competing CDNs.[1]
