    Hello Team,

    When to use the CloudFront Distribution(cache), Global Accelerator and Route 53 in my Architecture. —> Call will go to Load balancers in different Regions(as it is a regional service).

    In case, 1) I have to host my website in multiple Regions.

    In case, 2) I have to host my website in one Region.

    Cloud you please share a big picture ?

    Hello Gurpreet,

    Your question is too vague, with lots of missing details. When you say “host my website in multiple Regions”, what do you mean by that and what exactly are you trying to achieve? is it for disaster recovery? is it for improving end-user experience ? what kind of website are you hosting? Also, the way you compare those three services seems as though you wanna know whether you should choose X over Y, or Y over Z when in fact, all X, Y, Z can work collectively to create a solution. For instance, suppose you’re hosting a single-page app, you can use CF to deliver the UI component closer to users, global accelerator to optimize traffic to your application tier, and Route 53 for hosting your domain.

    Dear Carlo,

    I am still very new in AWS and learning aws services and its different architectures. I am looking for four things in my architecture. DR, improve user experience, fault tolerance & HA. I did not understand role of global accelerator(when) to use it. Can I have all these features in one architecture.
