TESSA DAM and Amazon CloudFront (CDN)

The relevance of digital media and their immediate availability worldwide is becoming increasingly important. By using a digital asset management system in conjunction with a content delivery network service such as Amazon CloudFront, assets can be made available to end customers worldwide even faster in the respective channels such as the online shop or in the CMS.

 

What is Amazon CloudFront?

Amazon CloudFront ist ein CDN-Service (Content Delivery Network) des amerikanischen Cloud-Computing Anbieter Amazon Web Services (AWS). Dieser Service stellt Daten wie beispielsweise Medien, Schnittstellen oder Anwendungen mit hoher Übertragungsgeschwindigkeit Kunden auf der ganzen Welt zur Verfügung. Die Sicherheit wird unteranderem durch Verschlüsselungen auf Feldebene und HTTPS-Unterstützung gewährleistet. Amazon CloudFront ist hochgradig skalierbar und stark global verteilt. Typische Anwendungsfälle sind die weltweite Bereitstellung von Medien und Inhalten auf Webseiten, Sicherung von dynamischen Inhalten und Live- und On-Demand-Video-Streaming. Bekannte Brands wie Netflix, Tinder oder Slack greifen bereits auf Amazon CloudFront zurück.
