Episode 73 - Edge Networking Special

In this 1 hour-long themed episode of AWS TechChat, join us as we sail to the Edge and demystify many of the core concepts that occur before end-user requests are made. We start the show setting a foundation of Domain Name System (DNS), why it is important, before talking about Amazon Route 53, a highly available and scalable cloud DNS Service. It is also a full featured DNS service that is API, SDK, and CLI driven. We then introduce the concept of Content Delivery Networks (CDN), and talk about Amazon CloudFront which speeds up the distribution of your static and dynamic web content. Amazon CloudFront also delivers the content through a worldwide network of data centers called edge locations. Amazon CloudFront allows you to run AWS Lambda functions at the edge. Lambda@Edge is an extension of AWS Lambda which lets you execute functions and customize the content Amazon CloudFront delivers. Before closing out, we talk about AWS Global Accelerator, a service that improves the availability and performance of your applications with local or global users. It provides static IP addresses that act as a fixed entry point to your application endpoints in a single or multiple AWS Regions.
