Rock Solid CDN Performance with Good Cache Hit Ratios

Pros

1) Easy to implement for a WordPress blog. 2) Good speed. 3) Ample of features. 4) Easy to integrate with other AWS products. 5) More than 200 points of presence across the globe. 6) AWS Shield Standard is available to all customers at not additional cost and is always on to protect your Amazon infra from Layer 3 and 4 attacks. 7) Discounts are available when you commit to minimum 10TB/month. 8) Save costs by selecting Amazon Price Class 200 which serves content from all locations except South America and Australia instead of Price Class All which serves from all location globally. Price Class 100 is the cheapest among all as it serves content only from US and Europe. 9) Regional caches so less requests to origin. 10) Restrict access to authenticated people with Token Authentication. 11) With Geo Restriction prevent people in certain regions to access your content. 12) Origin Shield creates a cache copy at a central location which saves your server during traffic spikes. 13) If one origin fails another can be enabled.

Cons

1) Little pricy but one gets good performance. 2) Customer support not for all. Pay extra. 3) Complicated pricing. 4) Pay extra for Amazon Shield Advanced. 5) Pay extra for Web Application Firewall.

Such a great platform which is not so easy to use

A great infrastructure and a platform with great performance that can definitely be improved in terms of accessibility and overall customer support

Pros

I love their network and the functionality they have to offer great service, the performance has never let me down and I must say they are one of the top providers in the category.

Cons

It's not easy to set up at all. There are so many pitfalls while settings things up that a small mistake can set you back by hours of your time. A very dated interface for their platform leaves you guessing most of the time on how to achieve simple things. Be ready for a ton of tech jargon that you are definitely not going to understand if you are new to this. Customer support for some plans is non-existent and for other plans, it is not so accessible. The pricing is not so transparent as it at times it can leave you guessing what the actual price you would be charged after adding up everything.
