Introduction to Amazon CloudFrontGo to Lab
yesterday I fail using cloud front. so I tried this and worked well. I am happy to this. I will explain this and may use it in client site.
The Lab was good and it was explained in very easy way.
it wasn't really clear if the image was actually being retrieved from s3 or cloudfront. Because the labl is timed I felt pressured to rush through and click all the buttons without really thinking about what I was doing. Something that proves that the image came from the cdn would be great
Really a good experience.
a little slow
tokens are too costly.... :)
Should be clear in the instructions that an IMAGE or media file is desired - I uploaded random binary data and had to re-do this later which was a pain. Suggest a note saying "have a non-confidential jpeg handy for this lab".
The Lab does not tell you what to do with the created .html file. You need to upload the created .html file to the S3 bucket (same as image file) and make sure to designate it as "public". You also have to select that the S3 bucket will be a "static web-page" Using the created domain name from CloudFrontDomainName/xxx.html will then populate.
