    Akeneo Amazon CloudFront Connector

    Introduction

    Akeneo Amazon CloudFront Connector: With the help of this extension, you can integrate Amazon CloudFront CDN with the Akeneo PIM platform.

    After successful integration, the CloudFront CDN (Content Delivery Network) servers will be used for caching and serving media, images, PDF, and video files, etc. from product data.

    Amazon CloudFront speeds up distribution of your static and dynamic web content, such as .html, .css, .php, image, and media files.

    When users request your content, CloudFront delivers it through a worldwide network of edge locations that provide low latency and high performance.
