A CDN solution to enhance loading times and streamline navigation
When one of the primary nodes spanning from North to South America, from the northern US to the southern US, became operational, it had a big impact. It can be challenging to explain its advantages to clients. The technical nature of the marketing material is too technical for stakeholders. Integrating the solution was straightforward, requiring no extra effort. Edgio Global CDN operates, resembling familiar cloud services but offering elevated functionality. Unlike platforms such as Google Cloud Platform or RIN geared towards development teams, Edgio emphasizes client-facing services that are integral to our operations. Overall, I rate the solution a nine out of ten.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"The beneficial feature for the entire AWS community is the presence of edge location servers. These servers are strategically located in multiple locations, allowing efficient content delivery from the nearest server."
"The speed and usability of the solution are valuable."
"The product is very well interconnected with other Amazon services."
"The image loading process is easy and cost-effective too."
"Its main advantage is that it offers something in this region that wasn't available before; previously, you had to go outside of the region to get the same level of service that you can now access right here in Bahrain. It's truly incredible. Building this IX has significantly changed how traffic is handled. The technical support is good. The initial setup is very straightforward. I rate the solution a perfect ten."
"The support team is knowledgeable."
"Amazon CloudFront is a stable solution."
"We can personalize a lot of things inside CDN."
"The tool's most valuable feature is the Uplynk platform for streaming purposes."


"There is room for improvement in customer service and support."
"They should have more Edge locations so that CloudFront can be used much more. If they can make it a little bit cheaper and better than other networks, we will be able to use it more."
"The only issues we've faced were when AWS itself had problems, and that's very rare. I can only recall one instance when they had issues, but they managed to resolve it quickly."
"One of the biggest challenges with Amazon CloudFront is their pricing policy"
"The tool must provide regional control."
"Amazon CloudFront can improve by accurately determining the latency of a non-defined URL that the solution encounters."
"Amazon CloudFront is harder to understand compared to Azure."
"They could be expanding the number of locations available. It will help users easily access content."
"The tool needs to resolve its lack of innovation."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"I used to work with AWS and Azure, and we provided cost comparisons for customers to help them choose the right services. Azure tends to be more user-friendly and easier to understand, while AWS may take more time."
"Its price is really on the high side. It should be cheaper in general."
"The tool is affordable."
"The policies and prices keep on changing frequently with AWS solutions"
"Compared to competitors like Azure and Google, we find AWS pricing to be advantageous."
"The product could improve its price."
"For CloudFront, I'm quite satisfied with the pricing. Initially, it doesn't require many resources for this specific solution."
"We do not have many options to optimize costs."
