CloudFront vs Global Accelerator.

CloudFront and Global Accelerator are similar. They both reduce latency. What are specific differences?

1 Answers

While CloudFront can achieve some of the same objectives as Global Accelerator, it is limited to HTTP traffic, CloudFront can cache HTTP objects at edge locations and it uses a DNS name with changing IP addresses rather than static ones. Gloabal Accelerator can be used for all TCP and UDP traffic, and Global Accelerator does not support Edge Caching.
