Amazon made good on their promise to launch a content delivery network by the end of the year this morning with the release of CloudFront.

Pricing in the U.S. and Europe starts at $.17/GB transferred, ranging down to $.09/GB for transfers over 150 TB/month. They’re somewhat higher in Asia. This isn’t the lowest CDN pricing out there by far, but it’s pay for usage only, giving smaller players a price advantage over large competitors like Akamai. And the service promises to work seamlessly with Amazon S3 and their other web services.

Amazon CTO Werner Vogels has more.
