CloudFront is a content delivery network (CDN). A CDN is a global cache that stores copies of your data on edge caches, which are positioned as close to your customers as possible. It has three main benefits: lower latency, higher transfer speeds, and reduced load on the content server.
- Load balancing is a method used to distribute incoming connections across a group of servers or services.
- Incoming connections are made to the load balancer, which distributes them to associated services.
