This lab demonstrates how to start distributing your web content with Amazon CloudFront by taking a simple static website in Amazon S3 and integrating it with Amazon CloudFront to deliver your website content from AWS edge locations. The majority of this lab will focus on creating an Amazon CloudFront distribution with the AWS Management Console, and then adapting the existing web pages to use Amazon CloudFront.
This lab demonstrates how to use Amazon CloudFront to deliver a dynamic, multiple bit-rate media stream to a connected device using Apple’s HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) protocol. The stream can also be played on any browser which supports the HLS protocol. In this lab, you also use Amazon Elastic Transcoder to convert a source video into multiple bit-rate files that will be delivered using CloudFront.
This lab will demonstrate how to deploy a photo sharing website with a web interface for users to browse and store images. The application, written in Ruby on Rails, will use Amazon S3 for storage, Amazon DynamoDB for the database, and Amazon EC2 to host the web application.
