Reducing network latency and increasing throughput can substantially improve the performance of applications delivering resources over the Internet – whether it’s images, videos, application downloads, or other files. A content delivery service can improve the performance of your website and can lower your costs by pushing content closer to your users.

To serve end users outside of China, AWS (China) recommends using Amazon CloudFront, a global content delivery web service that integrates with other Amazon Web Services to give developers and businesses an easy way to distribute content to end users with low latency, high data transfer speeds, and no commitments. Amazon CloudFront uses a global network of edge locations, located near your end users in the United States, Europe, Asia, South America and Australia. Amazon CloudFront edge locations are currently not available inside of China.

Amazon CloudFront services are provided independently by Amazon Web Services, Inc. and require a separate global AWS account.
