By default, you can create a combined total of 100 web and RTMP distributions for each AWS account. To request a higher limit, go to https://aws.amazon.com/support/createCase?type=service_limit_increase&serviceLimitIncreaseType=cloudfront-distributions.
The number of files that you can serve per distribution is unlimited.
Web distributions serve both static and dynamic content, for example, .html, .css, .php, and image files, using HTTP or HTTPS. A web distribution gets files from locations—known as origins—that you specify. Each origin is either an Amazon S3 bucket or an HTTP server, for example, a web server. You can specify any combination of up to 10 Amazon S3 buckets and/or HTTP servers as your origins.
You can also use a web distribution to distribute a live event, such as a meeting, conference, or concert, in real time. For live streaming, you create the distribution automatically by using an AWS CloudFormation stack. For more information, see the applicable live-streaming tutorial in CloudFront Tutorials.
For more information about how web distributions work, including the values that you specify when you create a web distribution, see Working with Web Distributions. For information about creating a web distribution, see Creating Web Distributions.
RTMP distributions stream media files using Adobe Media Server and the Adobe Real-Time Messaging Protocol (RTMP). An RTMP distribution must use an Amazon S3 bucket as the origin.
