  • AWS CloudFront Live failover - You can set up CloudFront with origin failover for scenarios that require high availability. To get started, create an origin group in which you designate a primary origin for CloudFront plus a second origin that CloudFront automatically switches to when the primary origin returns specific HTTP status code failure responses.
  • AWS CloudFront for Live Streaming - To use AWS Media Services with CloudFront to deliver live content to a global audience, follow the guidance included in this section.
  • Amazon S3 | Fastly Help Guides -
  • Edge Computing with Fastly CDN and Varnish VCL for Authenticated Requests - Endertech - A brief explanation of how to use Fastly CDN and Varnish with authenticated requests to offload static file serving from the origin and edge caching.
  • Lambda Edge Tutorial - This tutorial shows you how to get started with Lambda@Edge by helping you create and add a sample Node.js function that runs in CloudFront. The example that we walk through adds HTTP security headers to a response, which can improve security and privacy for a website. (That said, you don’t need a website for this walkthrough; we simply add security headers to a response when CloudFront retrieves a file.)
  • Lambda@Edge Design Best Practices | Amazon Web Services - Lambda@Edge transforms CloudFront into a highly programmable CDN with serverless compute capabilities closer to your viewers around the world. This blog is the first in a series that explains best practices associated with using Lambda@Edge functions to customize your content delivery.
