Amazon CloudFront – Production Status and an SLA

by Jeff Barr | on | in Amazon CloudFront | | Comments

I’ll be brief. Two quick yet important Amazon CloudFront announcements:

  1. First, we’ve removed the beta tag from CloudFront and it is now in full production. During the beta period we listened to our customers and added a number of important features including Invalidation, a default root object, HTTPS access, private content, streamed content, private streamed content, AWS Management Console support, request logging, and additional edge locations. We’ve also reduced our prices.
  2. There’s now an SLA (Service Level Agreement) for CloudFront. If availability of your content drops below 99.9% in any given month, you can apply for a service credit equal to 10% of your monthly bill. If the availability drops below 99% you can apply for a service credit equal to 25% of your monthly bill.

This doesn’t mean that we’re done. In fact, the team is growing rapidly and we have lots of open positions:
