Amazon Web Service, Caching and Assets

Hello all,

I’m thinking about using Amazon’s cloudfront as a CDN for static files (JPGs, CSS, Javascripts)

Since Yii uses assets to cache everything, how can I make use of amazons cloudfront w/ Yii?

I can host all css and images in cloudfront and make everything point to amazon.

For example,

img src=http://amazoncloudfront/bla.jpg

But won’t the assets folder eventually take over and render useless the css and images directory (thus the CDN)?

Please take into account that there are 2 hosting companies:

1.- Amazon for CDN

2.- Another web host for the rest. program + framework

What else can be cached in a CDN? Can the any part of the framework be cached?

Any examples or links are greatly appreciated.
