What is CloudFront? Why do we need this service in cloud? Does GCP or Azure have this service?

Hi Samaya,

Cloudfront is CDN service that securely delivers data, videos, applications, and APIs to customers globally with low latency, high transfer speeds. It stores the origin server data to all the edge location. If user hits from the U.S region, Cloudfront serves the data from US edge location and if some one request from Asia region, cloud front checks the near by edge location (Singapore / India) and serve the data.

GCP and Azure provides the CDN service.

  1. Azure CDN
  2. Cloud Interconnect (GCP).
