PC World: Amazon Adds SLA to Cloud-based Content Delivery Service

CloudFront can be used to distribute website images, videos, media files or software downloads, from edge servers located in the U.S., Europe and Asia, according to Amazon. Users are automatically routed to the nearest edge location to improve performance, the company said.

The SLA specifies that if the availability of a user’s content drops below 99.9 percent in any given month, it can apply for a credit equal to 10 percent of the monthly bill, according to a blog post. And if the availability drops below 99 percent, users can apply for a 25 percent discount.
