Amazon CloudFront: Awards
Amazon CloudFront is a web service for content delivery that allows you to deliver static and streaming content using a network of edge locations. Often, these systems are called Content Deliver Networks or CDNs (for more general survey of CDN techniques, see here).
I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with folks like Brad Marshall and David Richardson during the initial days of CloudFront, and even more excited to see what they have done in the past couple of years such as adding the support for streaming media and HTTPS support.
Last week, I was excited to see CloudFront winning couple of prestigious awards: Streaming Media – 2010 Editor’s Pick and European Readers Choice awards. I’m glad to see Cloudfront’s contributions being recognized and our customers find it extremely useful. Congratulations, CloudFront team!
On that note, CloudFront team is actively looking for extremely smart engineers who are passionate about large scale distributed systems and networks. If you’re interested, please contact David Richardson.
