Amazon Lowers CDN CloudFront Pricing Down To $0.05 Per GB For Volume
Amazon announced this morning that come February 1st, it will lower pricing for their content delivery network service, CloudFront, for large customers doing more than 1,000TB a month in volume. Amazon has already posted the new rates on their website.
This is an expected move from Amazon as their pricing was a little high for really large volume deals and with CloudFront now up and running for a few months, Amazon says, "As we continue to reduce our costs, we're able to pass the savings on to our customers."
The new pricing still does not make Amazon a threat to any of the large scale CDNs, but it only increases pressure on the smaller CDNs for customers who need very commoditized download services.
