This lab presents the issue of costs and latency being too high for our website. We will use the AWS Pricing Calculator to view the costs of using CloudFront in front of S3 and then create our CloudFront distribution to cut latency and optimize our costs.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Compare Costs
In this objective, we will review the current environment and understand the costs of our site using the Pricing Calculator. We will review the proposed changes to the environment (i.e., adding CloudFront) and compare the differences.
- Create, Deploy, and Test Our CloudFront Distribution
In this objective, we will create our CloudFront distribution and the records necessary to start utilizing it. We will then test the site connectivity.
