Confusion over Amazon s3 & Cloudfront
I am in the process of implementing a CDN for one of my wordpress sites. It it my first time using a CDN.
I have selected Amazon cloudfront-- but I am confused about how i should go about implementing it.
Do i want to have a copy of my sites files stores on S3, and then fed to cloudfront for delivery? Like this (my site >>> S3 >>> cloudfront >>> visitor )
Or, is it ok to have the files stores on my site and then fed directly to cloudfront for delivery? like this: (my site >>> cloudront >>> visitor)
How would using S3 & cloudfront benefit me? What is the optimal choice?
I have seen many conflicting articles around the web, so i am comfused.
Thanks in advance,
for safety reasons, i would chose site -> s3 -> cf -> visitor
if you have backups and pipe to feed the cf for 1st time usage, use site -> cf -> visitor
I think the main idea behind S3 -> CF is what happens with your website if your server goes down?
