Using Elastic Beanstalk with Amazon CloudFront

Amazon CloudFront is a web service that speeds up distribution of your static and dynamic web content, for example, .html, .css, .php, image, and media files, to end users. CloudFront delivers your content through a worldwide network of edge locations. When an end user requests content that you're serving with CloudFront, the user is routed to the edge location that provides the lowest latency, so content is delivered with the best possible performance. If the content is already in that edge location, CloudFront delivers it immediately. If the content is not currently in that edge location, CloudFront retrieves it from an Amazon S3 bucket or an HTTP server (for example, a web server) that you have identified as the source for the definitive version of your content.

After you have created and deployed your Elastic Beanstalk application you can sign up for CloudFront and start using CloudFront to distribute your content. Learn more about CloudFront from the Amazon CloudFront Developer Guide.
