During this lab, you will host your static website using the Amazon Simple Storage Service ( S3) so that it is secure, fast, protected against data loss, and can scale to support enterprise-level traffic. To do that, you'll store your website files on Amazon S3 and also use S3 to deliver your content to visitors to your website.
After setting up the static website on S3, this lab will show you how to use Amazon CloudFront to create a content delivery network (CDN). A CDN makes your website content available from data centers around the world, called edge locations. Using edge locations improves the speed of your website by reducing latency. Doing so is especially important if your website displays large media files such as high-resolution images, audio, or video.
