Learn what's required to deploy a static site with Amazon Web Services. Nate explains how the deployment pipeline works and what services are required.
- [Instructor] Amazon Web Services or AWS…is a cloud platform that offers hosted file storage,…compute, caching and more.…These services are typically used to power web…and mobile apps but AWS can also be used…to host static websites for very little cost.…Here's how it works.…When you make changes to your site files…and push them up to Github, Travis CI automatically runs…a build script.…We'll modify this build script to push…the site content to Amazon S3.…S3 is a file storage service that can act…as a simple web server.…
When your site files are on S3, they can…be served to visitors on the internet.…However, serving files directly from S3 is limited…and you can't add your own domain name.…That's where another service, Amazon CloudFront, comes in.…CloudFront is a content delivery network, or CDN…that takes your files from S3 and pushes them…to locations all over the world…so your pages load as fast as possible.…You can configure CloudFront with your domain name…and also at HTTPS to your site for free.…Both S3 and CloudFront are very inexpensive…
