Amazon has added streaming media to its CloudFront content delivery service.
Streaming content would put CloudFront more in competition with the likes of Akamai and Limelight. Amazon said CloudFront would be priced like the rest of its Web services---pay as you go for what you use.
Customers add original copies of their media files to Amazon's storage service, S3, and then enable CloudFront. Amazon takes the content and moves it to the closest edge location on its network.
