Earth Networks manages and operates sensor networks that collect real-time weather and lightning data. The company then distributes observations from these sensors in the form of current conditions, forecasts and severe weather alerts to a wide variety of users across their award-winning WeatherBug branded products that include mobile apps, the desktop app and the website www.weatherbug.com. Earth Networks uses Amazon CloudFront’s dynamic content features such as low time-to-live, query strings, and cookies to customize their users’ experience by distributing local information to millions of users in near-real time. With Amazon CloudFront, Earth Networks saved over 50% in CDN costs and anticipates 20% reduction in Amazon EC2 origin instances, without any reduction in performance compared to their previous CDN provider and without the need to write any customized code.
