Digital Asset Management with Amazon Cloudfront (CDN)

By using a digital asset management system in conjunction with a content delivery network service such as Amazon CloudFront, assets can be made available even faster to end customers worldwide in the respective channels such as the online store or in the CMS.

What is Amazon CloudFront?

Amazon CloudFront is a CDN service (Content Delivery Network) of the American cloud computing provider Amazon Web Services (AWS). This service makes data such as media, interfaces or applications available to customers around the world at high transmission speeds. Security is ensured by field-level encryption and HTTPS support, among other things. Amazon CloudFront is highly scalable and highly globally distributed. Typical use cases include global delivery of media and content to websites, securing dynamic content, and live and on-demand video streaming. Well-known brands such as Netflix, Tinder or Slack are already using Amazon CloudFront.
