Amazon CloudFront is a fast content delivery network (CDN) service used to speed up web content distribution and is delivered through a global network of data centers called edge locations. These locations are proxy servers that cache content so that when a user requests to view some content, the request is routed to the quickest edge location to help you deliver your content with the best possible performance.
By routing each user request through the AWS backbone network, CloudFront speeds up distributing your content by sourcing it from the edge location best suited to serve your content. With edge servers located across six continents, there is always an edge location ready to deliver your customers fast content.
By taking advantage of the AWS network, Amazon CloudFront dramatically reduces the number of networks that your user requests pass through, improving performance and achieving higher data transfer rates. Amazon CloudFront can help you speed up static website content delivery, encrypt specific fields at add field-level security, provide live streaming video or serve video on demand.
For example, if you produce your content in Europe but want to deliver fast content to South American users, you can use Amazon CloudFront to cache your content on the nearest edge location for South American clients. When a user from, say Brazil, accesses your content, they are directed to the South American edge server.
Amazon CloudFront is fully integrated with Amazon CloudWatch, and automatically publishes six operational metrics per distribution, which is where MetricFire comes into play.
With Metricfire, you can turbocharge your Amazon CloudWatch monitoring services. By integrating Amazon CloudWatch with the Metricfire platform, you can display your metrics on aesthetically pleasing dashboards. MetricFire's advanced filtering lets you choose only the data views you want to see and discard the rest. You can also set up simple rules to discard data you no longer keep, plus receive alerts via email or Slack when a distribution issue is detected.
Amazon Kinesis is the company’s real-time streaming data analysis platform. It provides powerful insights on video, data, audio, and other streams.
This data platform is a foundational component of data processing for machine learning, artificial intelligence, IoT telemetry, and more. With Amazon Kinesis, you have access to fully managed infrastructure to process all your streaming needs with low latency and little downtime.
It also easily connects to third-party databases and tools, like MetricFire, SQL, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) data stores.
No matter how much data you’re inputting, Amazon Kinesis easily queries and analyzes it to create flawless video, deep reporting, and even automation through Amazon S3 buckets, Redshift, Splunk, and other AWS services.
All data streams are securely encrypted and create a lot of use-cases. These proactive cognitive solutions create innovative new ways to interact with your data stores.
But why do you need it?
Amazon Kinesis gives businesses real-time access to all the necessary data for their businesses. It's an intuitive interface with visual access to all required information.
Leveraging real-time application monitoring is useful for fraud detection, tracking leaderboards, and quickly identifying issues.
Netflix uses Amazon Kinesis to keep its video streams healthy while also monitoring social media. The use cases are endless.
MetricFire easily connects to many different data sources, including Amazon Kinesis. MetricFire's advanced filtering lets you choose only the data views you want to see and discard the rest. You can also set up simple rules to discard data you no longer keep, plus receive alerts via email or Slack when your block store is doing something it shouldn't. First, you’ll need to download the Amazon AWS CloudWatch add-on from Hosted Graphite and connect your accounts.
From there, we have a comprehensive guide on how to link your accounts and set them up to automatically exchange data between both platforms.

MetricFire is a full-scale platform that offers infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. The platform allows you to use either Prometheus- or Graphite-as-a-Service and have your metrics displayed on aesthetically-pleasing Grafana dashboards.
MetricFire offers its users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, which is made up of three of the most popular open-source monitoring software services: Prometheus, Graphite, and Grafana. As well, plugins for a number of other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire works to boost the unique features of the open source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
Cloud and on Premise Monitoring
Whether to use Prometheus or Graphite is a great question. We’ve looked deeper into this decision in our blog article, Prometheus or Graphite. While Prometheus is a newer software that has a multidimensional data structure, Graphite is robust and sufficient. The key thing to remember is that Hosted Graphite by MetricFire is more than just Graphite. Our Hosted Graphite product actually adds data dimensionality and better data storage.
