Amazon CloudFront update – pricing insight

by on Nov.18, 2010, under Technology

Good afternoon,

In my recent article about Amazon CloudFront, I told you about the very cheap pricing of this service, which makes CloudFront very sexy even for very small websites that just want to use it to offload their own webservers and/or provide better than average performance for remote visitors (think about small E-commerce websites in Luxembourg that want to sell internationally even without having thousands of customers a day).

After some days of production use of CloudFront on , here’s the bill to date:


9 cents. I think that on a monthly basis, for, we’ll never be above 1 USD cost wise. So, to sum it up:

  • Global “Amazon performance” for your website
  • Sets up and configures in less than 15 minutes
  • Costs less than an apple a month

Why would you not use CloudFront even for your smallest website (*)? Great stuff …

(*) I can imagine many reasons, actually, privacy concerns or data export regulations being two. But still, these won’t apply to 99% of the potential small website users I’m thinking of.
