Integrating Amazon CloudFront - DH or S3?

#1

Hey Folks,

I just got an AWS account so I can have all my video files served via Amazon’s CDN, “Cloud Front.”

Now the question is, would my original video files be better off on my DH VPS? Or should I host them over at Amazon S3 instead?

Do you think there would be any performance difference?

All the dynamic parts of the site will live at my DH VPS.

Thanks for any thoughts!

If the costs involved are not prohibitive then it is definitely better to use the CDN as it alleviates some of the load from your serving environment.
