Which is better and why?
Our organization ran comparison tests to determine whether Amazon’s Web Service Global Accelerator or Amazon CloudFront global content delivery network was the better fit for us. We decided to go with Amazon CloudFront, which is designed in a way that provides users with a high degree of flexibility. It is extremely easy to customize to meet your setup needs. One of its more valuable features is the ability to both create and manage custom secure sockets layer certificates without incurring any additional costs. This allows your organization to create encryption protocols for your system that meets your specific requirements. By giving an organization this level of adaptability free of extra cost, Amazon has created a product that saves users money while keeping their needs in mind.
Amazon CloudFront also offers a level of integration that is not present in most similar products. Users are able to integrate different kinds of hardware and software into their network and use them seamlessly in tandem with Cloudfront. Load balancing softwares and routers of all different sorts are two examples of the kinds of products that Amazon CloudFront can connect with. It is also able to integrate with other AWS services. This access gives you a truly versatile collection of options to work with. In addition, Amazon CloudFront is compatible with a large selection of programming languages.
AWS Global Accelerator uses an automatic monitoring system that tracks the performance of your application’s link points. If one of them has an issue then it will automatically redirect your system’s request to an endpoint that is unaffected by the issue at hand. However, it lacks the flexibility and level of integration that Amazon CloudFront offers. As a result, users will have fewer network delivery options.
While AWS Global Accelerator is a fairly competent product, we found Amazon CloudFront to be superior. Amazon CloudFront’s greater flexibility and integration capabilities make it the more robust solution.
If you have a CDN, does it mean you don't have to worry about DDoS attacks or will hackers still succeed in carrying out DDoS attacks?
