Hosting Static Website & File Assets on AWS

Solution for hosting static file assets

Solution: 'Amazon S3 bucket + Amazon CloudFront + AWS Certification Manager (ACM)'

Amazon S3 is an object storage service, providing access to reliable, fast, and inexpensive data storage infrastructure. You can configure an S3 bucket to serve as static website and static file assets by enabling the website hosting feature.

Amazon CloudFront is a fast content delivery network (CDN) service that securely delivers data to users globally with low latency and high transfer speeds. When the CloudFront is worked together with ACM and S3, the solution can deliver static website and static file assets stored in S3 with the below benefits.

Benefits of the solution

  • Securely with encryption in-transit enabled (HTTPS with SSL provided by ACM)
  • Support custom sub-domain
  • CROS protection
  • Cost-efficient
  • Low latency and high transfer speeds globally
  • We help our customer implement S3 + CloudFront + ACM to serve static website and static file assets, in order to offload the application server and allow auto-scaling. We also use ACM to provide the SSL certificate and manage its lifecycle.
