Just wanted to get opinions on what protocols you guys use when hosting a server at Amazon AWS
Should I setup a cloud DP in JSS, or just simple SMB File Share DP
In your opinion what are the advantages of using a Cloud DP?
The cloud distribution point may be more accessible to people depending on your situation, if you have a lot of remote workers or a lot of laptops people use outside the office. Also perhaps it's easier for you to setup than getting a Mac Mini and setting up a fileshare.
Right now there is no relationship between an AWS DP and a local DP, ahem JAMF, but you can specify distribution points based on a device's network segment. Keeping in mind there is a small time period when a device is on a different network but hasn't checked in yet where it may go to the wrong DP.
