Content Delivery Network

Content Delivery Network

A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is an advanced traffic distribution network based on a system of distributed servers. This network captures content from the source server and saves it onto cache servers. Controlled by a dynamic traffic distribution controller, the user’s request is automatically redirected to the closest available cache server. A reliable CDN can shorten the servers’ respond time and enhance the availability of the servers. This response time is particularly noticeable when streaming video-on-demand or audio-on-demand.
