Chapter 10. Extended AWS Services for Your Applications

In the previous chapter, you learned a lot about how you can leverage S3 to store your objects and even perform some pretty interesting and useful lifecycle operations on them.

In this final chapter, we will be exploring a few additional AWS services that you can leverage to enhance your application's overall performance as well as availability. The two services that I'm going to cover are Amazon Route53 and Amazon CloudFront. After this, we will also take a quick look at some of the recently launched AWS services and products and how you can leverage them for your own environments, along with a final word on how to get going with AWS; so without further ado, let's get busy!
