What is a Content Delivery Network?

A Content Delivery Network (CDN) works by providing a network of servers for users to download resources (usually static content such as CSS, JavaScript and images). These servers are distributed throughout the world and therefore geographically closer to the end-users. That results in faster response and download time of content due to reduced latency.

What are the benefits?

  • Faster content delivery - a better user experience for your customers.
  • Less load on the origin - more resources for other tasks.
  • Increased reliability - handle traffic spikes and reduce system overload.
  • Reduced cost - bandwidth is expensive where CDNs offer better prices.
  • Scalability - Scale up or down within a short amount of time.
