    s3 transfer acceleration as the name suggests serves s3 and it can speed up content transfers to S3 for long distance transfer of large objects

    global accelerator is for ec2 and elb .

    but both use edge locations to improve network performance connecting to AWS

    Hi surupa,

    Thanks for the feedback.
    As the name suggests, S3 Transfer Acceleration only speeds up connection to Amazon S3, especially for transferring large objects.

    AWS Global Accelerator support a handful of AWS services. It is much close in function to AWS CloudFront.

    You can see here the comparison:

    Hope this helps.
